For some reason they have left off possibly my favorite Brautigan poem: I Cannot Answer You Tonight in Small Portions I cannot answer you tonight in small portions. Torn apart by stormy loves gate, I float like a phantom facedown in a well where the cold dark water reflects vague half-built stars and trades all our affection, touching, sleeping together for tribunal distance standing like a drowned train just beyond a pile of Eskimo skeletons. From 'The Pill v. the Springhill Mine Disaster.'
