"And how odd it is
to be haunted by someone
that is still alive."
I Guess the Old You is a Ghost (#589: June 25, 2014)
These were taken after a shift at the Video Saloon.
we drank a few shift beers and cleaned up
I rode home where I
drank the bottom of a bottle
of John Powers I kept on my nightstand,
possibly next to a Bukowski book.
It started to get light
and I rode to find
the quarry I had swam in the previous summer.
I didn’t find it.
instead I went to a breakfast place
and ordered some eggs
to sober up.
I had worked there all summer making toast on the line.
at the end of the summer I got fired
because I was bad at my job,
knew this, and didn’t care.
Got rained on but pushed through. RIP 🙌
