everybody’s been talking about the coastal uneasy. seaweed. dead eels. flies and seagulls ravishly squatting. rips and Tide in the laundry’s washing machine. it’s a jungle out there, but it’s not, because it’s an ocean. hurricane marie must be pretty to make all these beaches upset. from laguna to malibu, the surfers like her. i suppose i do too.

cashless
out of gas
in the jetta
cell battery at
seventeen
percent
said i’m sorry
more than
any human
(let alone—man to his wife)
on planet earth
in a record twenty
four hours and
still never right.

I’m living on the edge
to say
the least.

but at least
our planet is round.

others

do-gooders
and go-getters
usually find
their success
at the expense
of
oth

but

others
to do

you’re
welcome.
