I never became an astronaut or a fireman or a baseball player

the laundry keeps not doing itself

it’s like the dishes like that

blame is just another thing to toss around

like a softball

or a lemon

a question about everything comes around

every now and then

like an untouched stick of butter

left out on the counter too long

it doesn’t last the way it is

the universe of higher finances

is staying intact

I am certain of it

the pull of things is there

the attraction of specific bodies to other bodies

like dollar signs or cheap wine

it’ll be the death of me

there's a rain shower just around the corner

let’s vamoose
