more damn buttons than a spaceship

 

 

another restless night

spent trying to teach

the covers who’s the

boss

 

the morning shit

clogs the toilet on

the courtesy flush

 

damn sausage and

beer

 

you’d love to make

some coffee but the

coffeemaker has more

damn buttons than

a spaceship

 

toast it is

 

time to go try to start

a vehicle made in the

last century and go

to work

 

you grab your neon

vest and a trash bag

 

they don’t pay for

aluminum like they

used to

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

frogs

 

 

it’s the type of

storm where i

wouldn’t be

surprised if i

looked outside

and i’d see

frogs

 

arthritis raging

 

it’s time to go

to bed with an

old bottle of

wine

 

my family is

afraid i’m going

to kill myself

one day

 

i’ve told them

to embrace their

fears
