neighbor roy

Posted: 01/19/2011 in house of strangers

used to see him walking

his big old pitty

a mean looking thing called zeus.

used to see him washing

his big old custom truck

standing on its roof

with a big old garden hose.

used to see him standing

cross-armed on the lawn

with his big old wire frame

mirror glasses on.

used to hear him cussing

behind his big old redwood fence

at night outside his back door

drinking by himself.

    I’m looking for the verse where he shot himself with his big ole 45. But then, …zeus.

    The guy had inner resources.
