when walking downtown
this just sitting on a corner
no palm trees to be found
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.”
parked across from me. i wonder about the story.
broken jeep, heart, soul, wallet?
“if you’re planning only to make money and nothing else, you’ll be broke.”
(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.”
i nodded in agreement and finished signing in.
‘drawing on my fine command of the english language, i said nothing.”

imagination was given to man to compensate him
for what he is not;
a sense of humor to console him for what he is.
