Stepping on a gravestone reaching for a wishbone feeling like Kevin from "Home Alone" social distancing with the gnomes. Standing in the "Drop Zone" putting out orange cones, watching for the Amazon drone to bring some TP home. Screaming out to the unknown hanging with "Hambone-Hambone" playing our trombones waiting for Sylvester Stallone. Listen ya old crone, you smell like Grandma's cologne and a grey-haired kidney stone... "Leave me the Fuck Alone".

One day it could be I won't even know you one day you will hold my hand in yours one day you might ask "Do you know me?" and without a blink, maybe I'll say "no sir I don't know you" maybe I'll stare into space, maybe I'll smile maybe I'll say to you "you're a fine young man" and then maybe I'll say "you're father must be proud" maybe... I won't say anything.
As I slurped a heaping spoonful into my mouth my head started spinning my heart started pounding my nose wiggled and giggled and my taste buds exploded... smashing all over the inside of my mouth.

she danced with one eye on her beer sang whenever she wanted to and smoked until she choked gave all her spare change to the alley cats and the mangy mutts had a heart of gold and punched like Rocky Marciano give her a boilermaker and a pack of Chesterfields she'd have your back forever mystery and pain on the inside bold and fearless on her skin like sunshine and midnight together lost...but she knew where she was
