senators take note…

i saw
the brown bag prophet
parking
a 1954
austin healy
bug-eyed sprite
in
the public parking lot
behind
the court-house
as
he
walked around
the corner
i
mentioned
the disparity
between
what he
presents
his financial situation
to be
and
what it
apparently
is
he smiled
and
gave
no direct response
to my
comment
instead
said
if you
want
to
seriously
consider
disparity
recall
that
driving
under the influence of alcohol
will land you
in jail
so
what does
governing
under the influence of
insanity
get you

 

a single forget-me-not…

as a poet
i have decided
to
fade away
quite
gracefully
merging
into the woodwork
but
leaving
a rather
irritating stain
deep
into the fibers
of life
not
removable
by sanding
and
far
too costly
to replace
i absolutely
see
no need
for me
to
change
completely
because of a little thing
called
death
