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

Stay Awake

You feed me facts like benzedrine,
like boring benzedrine, the OTC
scraps of World Book pages: Montpelier
is a state capital, vampire bats don't suck
but stab and lap. You say ec cetera
so much I miss an exit laughing
but it's OK because now we have time
for Marshall Field's, and was he one guy
with a beard or two guys one of whom
was bearded? We lose out on a parking spot
by inches, but it's OK because we get to name
three porn stars and I get to learn
Tawny Kitaen wasn't a porn star
she just hung out with Whitesnake.
