Kate spent most of the afternoon
Reading over and over the letter

Michael took the trash outside
And noticed he was getting older

Sarah just baked a chocolate cake-
Her cooking is getting better

Your glare got me like battery acid
As you peered over your shoulder.

on my birthday


i want beer and yellow cake with
sprinkled frosting and then another
beer i want sunshine and wind
in my hair (or across my baldness)
i want donuts and beer and donuts
then more donuts and people
to tell me i’m special by giving
me beer and donuts and most of
all i don’t want people to leave
me notes on my facebook
