It’s time that we began. 16 years of hard time I got but worse than that was the thought of him out there, doing it again, safe and warm knowing that I am in here.
Today I dusted the tree beneath which sits some fat guy, laughing. Small animals graze.
bop e do bob boom
the John Coltrane riff, subtitled,
ahh that was so beautiful
When suddenly, thought expired
into a Mambo mermaid seabreeze salty
gotta new tattoo it’s a real beauty,
