Invisible Man meets Portnoy, the blurb raves.
My property would be a multi-book deal, exclusive cable rights,
Translation into 26 languages, Bridget Jones hosting the launch,

Airport racks chock-a-block.
On Shinkansen and D train, every passenger
A-swim in my masterpiece—

Brilliant mash-up of Shakespeare & Pryor. I close on
A Bel-Air mansion and don’t give out the address.
My new friends are gorgeous in

The exact same way. We lounge around the pool, talking
High concept and weekend grosses.
Mazzy Star’s on the box: dream-pop for end-times.
