— a poem by JD DeHart

A youth in smoking jacket
Lighting up: 
You should read Henry Miller
I do, and it blows my mind
I listen to a college class on Thoreau
I decide I want to be this man
Disillusionment sets in when I realize
            Only one night in prison
I consider row upon row of lit mags
Climb the campus up and down.
