No gates to the Campo Italian Shopping Mall Poem 2020


If there is Donnatellanyone Versace here

then there must also be Karl Lagerfeld

There are no gates to the Campo

Lady Gaga sings you a whole concert broken up into

Separate segments for many of her songs;

and at the end lays a shroud upon you

perhaps she is an angel sent from heaven

Perhaps she is the Holy Mother

Today Stephanie Germanotta is shroudy

with a great chance of breaking out into song

Laghetto spaghetto Gepetto Repetto.. I repeat

Ten Years of Italy, Hundreds of Years of Italy

“Little Italy”.. “what do you mean Little Italy”… “Big Italy”

Some thought Columbus was going in a straight line but he knew he was going around in a circle and now he is one named Columbus

Walking with a friend in a dream and  arriving a celebrity party and only I want to go in.. it is some of the cast of One Day at a Time, Un Giorno alla Volta, including the late Bonnie Franklin and Valerie Flirtinelli waiting for Eddie Van Halen is he departed no he is alive but will not be arriving and soon your car is overheating and you feeling great thirst.. so you will not be attending the opening of posters including works by Damian Hirst…

Everything I have ever written has joined the cacophony

of the Grand Universal Library of blah! blah! blah!

Rice a ruini

Palazzo delle Post-it

Paparazzi Doorman

Diving as the chosen sacrifice in mesh metal Neptunic the aqueous beast comes thrashing into the cage rattling the armored sushi inside

driving along the highway on an interstate such as I-95 and Trans-American trucking company’s monster comes along out of its passing lane and into yours’ on the passenger side obliterating the side-view mirror like a skeet target shot upon

having mostly missed the automobile the tail end swiping appearing as if a steel bridge span then moving off into the distance with the arch in its form with the gradient in the road

In Venice a huge luxury boat pleasure mall afloat directionless after its crew having lost control having come in off the Giudecca Canal from the sea wedging itself in lopsided between the shore or the filled in shore who can be sure as tourists as if cast for a mega-  tweet scamper and evacuate.. and now  this was it just a minute ago Banksy was here in La Serenissima making light of this all

Dolce in The Campagna


Fattoria Dell’Arte

The Peter Paul Reubens sundae

Peach orange cream vanilla

And you used to be able to get the Reuben sandwich down the street at the Carnegie Deli but that closed but it’s open at various casino hotels and sometimes it’s brought back to life as a pop up by the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

fattoria Delle’Arte I made it up and it existed

I hit pay dirt

So it’s off to the Fattorium

Borgia gorgeous

Bolle Ballet Buffet Cesare

Lucrezia Borgia rises into the fresco as if into heaven assumed

in a nightmare of her father Rodrigo

As a gull flies high into becoming part of a mosaic on the upper reaches of San Marco



Milano Palazzo Fresco Tiepolo
Chicken ParmaGianniVersace and the Garlic Broads
Lucrezia, Juan, and Cesare Borgia suffered from a Popiod addiction
Tiepolo through the tulips
The leather God Polo Pluto
the perhaps Venetain by birth explorer Marco Polo

Posterior Delle Arte
I knew some people named Messaline who had changed their name from Mussolini after Mussolini had made a mess
Lamb Jambo Jamboree Louis Vuiton shopping spree Rambo Jambo dunno jumbo Jamboree
Hamas pizza Liza slice of pizza what lies ahead more lies ahead ahead of the next Sliza pizza


Zibetto Gepetto
The Borgias kept going back and Sforza
Liza Mint Jelly
Straight through the heart of latte;
into cappucino

Milano expository
Were the Borgias more gorgeous than the Sforzas?
When Cesare Borgia got entangled with Catarina Sforza,
he was not looking over a Forli Clover

I’ll have of a Madonna of the Rocks

Why should you.never go to an a la ca
Arte with an Italian. Because they are always switching sides

Here comes a passage to pasta
keep your eye on the Balla

Like as if propelled by a scirocco into Broccolino
Micheletto, Gepetto, Zibetto, Laghetto
Savonarola Steve Irolla
