"Many a man's reputation would not know his character if t hey met on the street."

Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915)

I have been declared
non salvageable
for all general purposes
by the neighborhood
beautification committee

having pissed in
too many mail boxes
and cut down
too many beautiful
neighborhood trees

I've been taken
to the city limits
told to run for it
don't look back
and not to write
if I make it

part of this is made up
but I'm not going to
spoil it all by telling
which part, partly
I just don't know

yes, grown men cry,
but only on the sly.
should be obvious why.
