The non-sequiturs of summer (a poem)

The day in review.

Molten sulfur in the tank(er)
green swizzle stick on the porcelain
a beat-up pickup blocking the road

It’s complicated

You can’t buy a thrill
but you can buy the collected works
of Steely Dan
in the format of your choice

It’s cheap—but it’s not free

And it’s a frickin’ bargain
compared to trying to get what you want
out in the real world
when you’re shackled
to other people’s expectations

What color is the air today?

I’m not going to pretend
I have answers

It’s complicated
