THE HEIR'S ONE WILD YEAR

Overfed on Fitzgerald,
he hides in the tropics, far
from European lovers starving
for sonnets. Under palm
trees, he is the skeleton key
to his desires, a pumped
mystery play gendered and
grand with abandonment.
Still, he ends up as Gatsby
with abs. What amnesty he
finds is a borrowed illiteracy.
A tragic trust fund waits at home.
