Don Riggs: Jupiter Transits My Anus

           Jupiter conjunction Uranus,  , exact at 19:04, Sept 26
They say to expect a sudden windfall
but instead I get an unexpected
disaster, which could, I admit, really
be a blessing in disguise, but if it
is a blessing, the disguise is so good
that it has me shaking inwardly deep
in my thoracic cavity, the ribs
providing as much shelter as the cage
they put Ezra Pound in when they caught him
in Italy on their drive through Pisa
then brought him back stateside for the trial
that was dismissed and he was put away
in Saint Elizabeth’s for a dozen
years surrounded by lunatics and poets.
