CLIV

 

Sitting on my beach chair

Who the hell needs a career?

Catching rays

Reading philosophy books all day

I’m not a frustrated big shot

With an empty fridge

 But has kitchen granite counter tops

No

I live in a sixty-four year old three room shack

Concrete Block Structure

Flat Roof

Survived multiple hurricane attacks

Sharing space with

Reptiles

Rodents

Termites

And

A gigantic organic vegetable garden out back

Love my Sony Walkman

Forget digital sound

Will die a cassette man

 Over forty years

Bar-B-Que

1-2 times per week

Colonoscopy just came back all clear

Thirteen years ago stopped cutting my hair
