Week At a Glance
Sunday stitches eyelids shut. Monday gesticulates with the soggy, chewed-up
end of a cigar. Tuesday loses a crap job
and never finds another near as good.
Wednesday hangs itself in the shower.
Thursday, when asked, can’t explain it.
Friday tosses and turns under glow-in-the
dark ceiling stars. Saturday tries to get
in the door without the dogs going crazy.
”How do you spell that?”
”Like God, but with two o’s.”
I could have been an artist,
drawn stick figures on toilet paper
you never know.
