THE WORST IS OVER UP SOUTH The sky is local red rock cod. On the horizon a dory sparkles Like sandal straps on B Street. The center of the universe Is over there, somewhere. I’ve had it with playing catch and release . The outcome is more predetermined than pro wrestling And nowhere near as entertaining. I’m thinking of putting in for a transfer to A different department. But you know another thing about it? 9 times out of 10 If the right people are in place They’re gonna look at it and go Why wait any longer?
REALITY CHECK But just because I’m this way Every time you see me Doesn’t mean I’m always this way. Do you understand that? Do you understand what I’m saying?
CANCEL CULTURE Whole grain oats. High protein. Less sugar. Possible red flags: Kangaroo rats. Pupfish. Let’s go with The benefit of the doubt And don’t forget the biscuits. They won’t show it on the news. They say they’re backlogged, But they’re not.
