truck stop limerick

follow your dreams like you must
& get your ass back on the bus
& i won't stay
stuck in the way
i'll oil your wheels, scrape off rust

the mud pie looks good

my old friend
in the shined shoes
business suit
silky tie
silky smile
if you saw a 4 leaf clover
in the crack of the sidewalk
on your way to lunch
at the capital grille
with clients in tow
good impressions all over
would you stop stoop pick it
save it see it

or do you see nothing but the horned rim of your glasses
and believe in nothing but who pays the bill
and hope for nothing but unqualified success
as defined by your neighbors as defined by
your neighbors' magazines

and don't you remember making mud pies
the shells were those big flat glossy leaves
that curled up a little on the edges
& we lined them up on top of the stone wall
& they looked so good we took a taste we had to
and it tasted like our fingers and leafy
but crunchy in a bad way and not to be repeated

and don't you think of that when you see
the 4 leaf clover & don't you leave it there for someone else to find
and don't you tell the table while the waitress gets drinks
about the mud pies

everybody in the world today's got an animal they need to liberate

last summer there was a grasshopper next to my desk

it hopped up above the road to shambala

then it hopped on the mirror

then it hopped too close to holden the hunter

my clarinet career

was pretty short-lived. highlights included "indiana jones theme," "american patrol," "nutcracker suite" and the santana medley we did in junior high with mr. romeo.

the morning they drug ol' dixie up

static on the wires
town's consumed in fires
nothing to do but let it burn
nothing to do when it's your turn
things fall apart
people come together
to rebuild
because there's nothing left to do
with the something that's been left
but start it all anew
hope for nothing but the best
