California Contractor

If all these stars
if all these stars
are all the women I’ve ever fucked
then this life is a better life for you
and all the daughters you’ve ever known

for they have gone with me
to dim sum on sunny mornings
heard theories of grasses and wildflowers
while the waves of the ocean
broke two hundred yards behind
our heads

into something that is turning and
turning time and bodies and breath

and the directors in Hollywood are talking
their stale breath before God
and the crumbling plumbing in La Brea.
