Real Estate - Richard Brautigan


I have emotions
that are like newspapers that
     read themselves. 

I go for days at a time
trapped in the want ads. 

I feel as if I am an ad
for the sale of a haunted house: 

     18 rooms
     I’m yours
     ghosts and all.

of all the candy bars
I’ve ever eaten.”

Romeo and Juliet

If you will die for me,
I will die for you

and our graves will
be like two lovers washing
their clothes together
in a laundromat.

If you will bring the soap,
I will bring the bleach.

I Live in the Twentieth Century

I live in the Twentieth Century
and you lie here beside me. You
were unhappy when you fell asleep.
There was nothing I could do about
it. I felt helpless. Your face
is so beautiful that I cannot stop
to describe it, and there’s nothing
I can do to make you happy while
you sleep.

Just Because

Just because people love your mind,
doesn’t mean they have to have your body,

Boo, Forever

Spinning like a ghost
on the bottom of a
I’m haunted by all
the space that I
will live without
