coconut.

Standard

 when walking downtown

this just sitting on a corner

no palm trees to be found

i wonder

if you are missing your coconut

did you leave it behind

 did you lose it

and not notice?

“in the garden of gentle sanity, may you be bombarded by coconuts of wakefulness.”

it changes every day.

Standard

(a highly-compensated re-enactor above,

showing my expression and hair at sign-in)

while signing-in at the salon

i asked the receptionist

what the date was

to which she replied, 

“oh, let me look. it changes every day. this keeps happening.”

(not ironically)

i nodded in agreement and finished signing in.
