theme on a variation

by jhon baker

now
I keep waiting for someone to come by and offer to amputate my leg for a few hundred bucks. Or isn’t this why I keep that in cash on my person at all times?

I assume such a person wouldn’t accept a check or a major credit card and I don’t think I would want to pay with either of those anyway.

later
this month I am seeing Roger Waters play The Wall in Ohio and Bob Dylan in Chicago. I normally don’t get out this much. A few days after Dylan we are boarding a plane and heading to Disney. I may burn from the abundance of exposure, or be inspired by a six foot tall rat and his cronies.

before
a ladybug landed on my thumb and hung out for a few minutes and later ten miles away another ladybug landed on my gas tank and stuck with me for a few miles or it all might have been an opiate induced hallucination (all prescribed and taken as directed).

when in the company of fools
in the throes of poetry I have composed the better of myself onto fine paper using an antiquated office machine.

again, now
Coffee always tastes good at 10:21 pm. I prefer Orange Juice and oral sex in the morning.

  1. I've never felt more in touch with someone elses writing. I can really relate to this…

    But Damn…you write what is real in your life and that is the best anyone can hope to read..
    You just a jet-setting poet now aren't you?
    Say hi to The mickster for us !!!

  3. Shhhh… Don't tell anyone. I love Disney… I stay at The Boardwalk. It's modeled after Atlantic City during the roaring 20s with hot jazz piped in throughout the property. Even a brew pub on premises…
