Doesn’t want to know about the brown nits
Nestled in his daughter’s classmates’ hair.
If the bills come printed on pink paper.
He wants to air guitar
And write poems about being drunk and stupid.
Wants to be drunk and stupid.
Gets in the car and drives.
He hitches a ride home
Cause, who the hell needs gas money?
He forgot to take the garbage out,
So he put it in someone else’s trash can.
Really doesn’t want to hear it.
Cartoon me is a goddamn nuisance.
Can I borrow some tools from your shed?
Is clawing at the inside of the wooden box lid
With overgrown, bent back fingernails.
I shovel the last scoop of earth and think-
“There can’t be much more air in that crate.”
