I was down on the frown when the messenger brought me a letter

October 26, 2020

more or less



Less is more   or less

overdressed   underdressed

confident comfortable

I’m impressed

nothing more   nothing less


pedestrian chicken dance

duck duck         goose


say hello to my little friend

Mr. Jim Beam

he lives close to another friend

Major Lee Housed


Out in left field

Out to lunch

Out in the cold

sitting on the steps

the only thing between me and hypothermia

the only thing between my ass and those steps

a fat stack of divorce papers

fortified by fatass lawyers

insulated with inflated billable hours


belching away the one and only chance

to make a good impression

on a mind that was made up long ago


Raise your hand if you’ve

eaten the special at the Logan Deli

and Café Zum Zum

in the same 4 hour stretch…

a normal man would be in the hospital

it’s all about me

it’s all about calories


What should I do?

do what you say

or do it the right way


Do what you love

and the money will follow

that thing you love

right out the window


You can’t afford to


You can’t afford not to

the only thing between my ass and those steps is an 8.5 x 14" scrap of packing foam. and that has made all the difference

remember when said...

here’s to a simpler time with a 1.5 mile commute home up Pike Street passing 10 or 12 bars along the way, 3 of which I was actually fond of, being neither overpriced nor overrun with brogrammers. Downing a big burrito and several beers and then returning home to a spacious studio apartment that rented for $600 per month.
