1799: Spineless

He listens to Neil Young
without an ironic bone –
& his twin [a son-in-law]
has been diminished by
his sharp step-daughter
& his wife is looking him
over from below a brow
of raised concerns [how
ludicrous it is – he thinks
aloud to no one]/ He has
built a mausoleum & will
be lucky to lie in it – he is
on her roster of men they
will despise – it’ll be read
out – he isn’t Crazy Horse
