new poem

he was writing his own history
it was a feel good documentary

destroyer of lunchboxes
swallower of bright verandas
a beard growing on a beautiful vista
conquistador of the jersey shore

pounding his sonnets into typewriter keys
about girls in their blue jeans and tattoo sleeves

the words are spilling over now
"you're gonna miss me when i'm gone."
