The question no one is asking--
And just to let you know--
What we used to do, we used to--
And not to say that we won’t again--
But the question everyone wants answered is
How in blazes?
So what I’ve sort of started to do
If something’s like too
The world at large?
To where I find myself
In a gift card snafu
And it loops back?
Right? The parking ticket,
Then Starbucks screwed up my order,
Like pelicans looking down their noses at me,
Then the nutcase in the checkout line at the dollar store,
Like sap seeping slo-mo at the home for old utility poles,
Then the bitch at the register at the Mexican market,
Degree from UC Bovine?
Is I’ve started to actually take a minute,
You know like,
God’s still on the throne,
You know what I’m saying?
Does that make sense?
The people you love.
Do it for them.
