he’s a scavenger but he’s really not that bad

Socrates is busy corrupting the youth
while i run circles around the suburbs,
debatin’ questions of considerably less
importance. we might be extemporaneous
allies but trust has always been an issue.
talking doesn’t mean much at this distance.
i’ve accepted a full-time job as an iced-tea
aficionado that’ll take me all around the

there won’t be time to talk. i’m in no shape
to watch melodrama & catch those catcall
insults. assuming finality of settlement, blame
means less than i’d assumed. besides, breaking
through defenses is a job for Edward Teach, not
Stede Bonnet. as the sunshine evaporates
from the ground up, i’m as lost as ever,
meaning i know exactly where i am. couldn’t
say that yesterday.

granted my own pardon & dreamless sleep.
found my own line in the sand, brandished
my own sword, cooked my own noodles.
seems like reputation is getting ahead of
my ponytail. really, i just like mango flavored
iced-tea. who knows where that even
came from? i don’t know if you heard; he’s
a scavenger, but he’s really not that bad.
neither am i.


Inspired by semantic misunderstandings. That wasn’t an argument, that was a discussion; & whatever happened to gamesmanship anyway? Like #6 said, “Chin up Potter.” He’s right. Joe Henry was way more explicit in ‘Progress Of Love.’ I guess you could take it in any direction you want. That’s my kind of loyalty.
