Playing the bassoon beside
the no swimming sign is not
an invitation to play frisbee
with your elder dachshund.
The rain is always in Virgo,
did you know that? It's a long,
long rope they use to hang you
soon I hope
. That’s cold-blooded
in a radioactive lizard kind of way.
In a watermark kind of way,
I am apologizing for my lack
of interesting habits and wardrobe.
Please accept this buy two, get one
free coupon as a confession. As
a free, totally normal chair.

Sorry About That
 

This photo of Lake Michigan
will make you vibrate. Leaves
like a hot biscuit. Backing out
of the driveway in third person,
not neutral. I looked fine inside
that tree in California, but who
believes that. Like all true love,
OK. I break in a tiny way when
the roller coaster goes in reverse.
You’ll receive a gift card if you
spot it. The dead mall beautiful
and foggy. I’m sorry about that,
I’m thinking of something else.
