PLAYIN’ THE GUITAR
I saw my friend play one.
I wanted to learn to play one.
I learned how to play the guitar
I’m pretty good at playing the guitar.
I should be famous or something.
I learned my first chord in a garage
I learned mostly on my own in my
bedroom, with a dip in.
Last night, I migrated
with the mallards
to find cold
The Trip to Texarkana
October 4th, 2015, 4:20 in the morning.
The call he wouldn’t make it.
The longing to see him
one last time.
The elevator ride to the ICU floor.
Stopped by my aunt.
He was gone.
Going in to the room. Seeing him there.
We prayed for healing, and healing
is what he got.
Do you know the answer?
I lay eggs every three days.
My TV loves to play hide and seek.
Are trees slowly killing us?
During lunch on Saturday
I think some meat dog food smells appetizing
Yes. Their oxygen slowly kills us.
Ode to Having Money
can buy whatever you want
it makes me happy
In the WWI
In the trench
Water 3 feet deep
Planes flying over head
Artillery hitting the earth
Rats eating away at my best friend
The ringing in my ears
The mustard gas filling the trench
As I take my last few breaths
