ash wednesday
i guess
if you
really
want
to kill
people
ash
wednesday
is a good
day to
practice
with that
bullseye
on their
head and
all
—————————————————————–
the devastation left behind
drove through the
old neighborhood
yesterday and all
the devastation
left behind by
the memorial
day tornado
a few hours later
i heard the mayor
tell the media the
cleanup was all
over and it’s time
to start to rebuild
i laughed and
remembered
exactly why i
moved away
that disconnect
from reality by
all the elected
officials
————————————————————
the medical records
i remember when
they decided to
make all the medical
records electronic
and here i am, over
a decade later, filling
out sheets and sheets
of info
just imagining all the
trees that died for this
meaningless bullshit
progress is always
attainable
as long as you really
fucking want it
——————————————————————-
at the dump
they found a guy
in the trash at the
dump still alive
i could just imagine
that being one hell
of a way to wake up
from a little nap in
a dumpster
—————————————————————–
california
two days
two earthquakes
the biggest felt
in twenty years
pretty soon the
much feared big
one will be upon
us
i’m waiting for
most of the state
to break off into
the ocean
just like the
conservatives
have always
dreamt about
