What’s With All the Despair and What’s With that Silly 60’s Song “And the Beat Goes On”?

A short poem
A little scene
Something like hung over
Suicide.

A short poem
An even smaller scene
Something like drugs
Suicide

A short poem
A tiny scene
Something like booze
Suicide

A short poem
The tiniest scene
Something like jazz
Suicide

A medium poem
A medium size scene
Something like needles
Suicide

A long poem
A huge scene
Something like everything
Suicide

And in the chronological
Middle
In a
Midwest city a
Middle-age
Middle-class, prosaic
Man’s heart
Stopped
Suicide
