Barfly poem

Hello!

I had a friend read me Barfly the poem from 'The Flash of Lightning Behind the Mountain'. I just want to read that poem again and was hoping somebody could post it?

Thanks!

Jane, who has been dead for 31 years,
never could have
imagined that I would write a screenplay of our drinking
days together
and
that it would be made into a movie
and
that a beautiful movie star would play her
part.

I can hear Jane now: "A beautiful movie star? oh,
for Christ's sake!"

Jane, that's show biz, so go back to sleep, dear, because
no matter how hard they tried they
just couldn't find anybody exactly like
you.

and neither can
I.

The Flash of Lightning Behind the Mountain is fairly new, (2004.)
I don't think the poem is collected in Pleasures.
