The Weight of the head… by Doug Draime


The Weight Of The Head

Rimbaud had consumed more
alcohol than any 16 year old
could possibly hold, and was
laying in the gutter puking

on the Boulevard Montparnasse,

in a new, blue silk blouse …
that he had stolen from a
40 year old trick …
who had finally gone home
to his grieving wife.


Doug Draime lives and writes in Ashland, Oregon. His most recent collection of poetry, More Than The Alley, was published by Interior Noise Press. He also has two chapbooks available: Los Angeles & Rock published by Covert Press.
