It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

dog days,red lights and blank faces.....

I’m sitting at a red light
on the corner
of 118th ave and 149th street
minding nobodies business
but my own,
of course!
im listening to the radio,
flipping through channels
searching for the past,
futility in denial,
tapping my fingers
wiggling my toes
maybe even scratching my nose,
as a group of old folks
pretending to be young and hip
are damaging my inner ear,
where the hell is Bach when you need him
the most,
a constant chase for immortality
a futile search
in desperation for lost youth,
I guess!
not much to do
for the stagnation of thought
as left me chatting with
my rented Shih Tzu,
forgive the “h” from here on in
in a language I’m sure he understands,
for he truly responds
I think!
I feel eyes staring at me
as I glance to my left,
I see an older lady and gentlemen
sitting
top down,
in a Mercedes Benz
if only i could spell that well?
waiting for the green
staring intently my way
with blank faces
peering into my soul
touching my insanity
I grimace
looking away
I feel
a chill run up my spine
I believe so anyway!
what can I do?
what can I say?
I,m caught red handed
talking to a shitzu
in dog jargon,
I think for a second
which feels like an eternity,
then I realize
there’s only one thing to do,
I smile!
tip my hat,
say woof,woof,
and drive,
right on through.
