Never read all my books
yet I’ll buy more.
More possibilities
sitting on my shelves
For when I get around to them,
or not.
I’m keeping my options open

Whilst I pat Ash
my cat
I’ll meow out Nirvana tunes.
Seems silly I know,
She’s never heard of them.

I’m Listening

September 29, 2018

I can hear by osmosis
a real getter of gists
but please
can you repeat that?

Getting older
hasn’t gotten old
It might
might not
Some ways are set
others open
So getting older
won’t get old.

The Dreamer

July 31, 2018

I’d like to be an actor
in a crime reenactment
as the criminal

Or a job in a video store,
because in 2018
it’d be nice and quiet

Or maybe, just maybe I could host karaoke
where I sing all the songs
and people like it.

Dare to dream.

Les Deux Magots

Here I sit where thinkers thought
having coffee and thinking thoughts,
about the thoughts they thunk
Then thinking,
just how did philosophers afford to drink here anyway?

The Clink

Our hostel,
has prison cells
and I’m even drunk in its courtroom.

Judge Sims-Jenkins presides:
“To the arsehole taking forever to take his clothing out of the dryer, how do you plead? Guilty right, because what the fuck is wrong with you?”

First and only witness is my wife:
“What the fuck is wrong with you?! Take your clothing out of the dryer, then fold them”

The jury is smart, fictional and fast, but mostly fictional and take three days to reach a decision
“Not sure”

Judge Sims-Jenkins replies:
“Overruled, you’re all guilty. This sentence is over”
