A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

Shuffle on My Side

depressed friends
& springtime
disappearing acts

don't say depressed friends
say friends with depression

says the TV (PC)
says Mom (kindly)
says Andy (R. A. Wilsony)

I "am" depressive
You "are" impressive

on nine or all night
Christmas it up
there are vias
& then there are vias

Truth or Dare
kitchen caballers
pouring vermouth

& in the fourth month
God cleared out his liquor cabinet

a mahogany bar in a suburban den
a babysitter's fantasy
someone handsome &
something neat

Whan that Aprille was so breezy
& full of clump & stick
