Over in the park I heard one speaker argued, said he,
“If there is any true justice and equanimity,
then is ‘being behind in your debts’
the same as ‘being ahead in your credits’?”
If you can learn
or benefit from someone else’s mistake,
they didn’t do it right.
Peering over his beer at me
in that laterally spun sonic bar I told you I sometimes visit,
this one chatty fellow that told me that he tries to always get up
an hour or so before his brain does every morning…
“So’s to get a head start on the little sucker.”
If they’re not checking I.D.’s when you enter,
who cares when you leave.
A man with a gem clip,
can be a friend to anyone.
