three decades in an empty jar of mayo

27 Jan
we were broke then
when lennon got shot
outside the dakota on 72nd then
reagan came along
ushered morning in america
and gave the impression
that we were rich or we could be
hinckley disagreed
and we are broke now then
everything is cyclical
then i watched boxcar willie
sell his greatest hits on the small screen
hart to hart star blazers three's company
love boat fantasy island dynasty tj hooker
fall guy bosom buddies facts of life all trash
listened to queen blondie elvis
(costello not the other one)
clash pistols pretenders talking heads
got my news first from frank reynolds
then peter jennings then roger…roger…moore
no mudd roger mudd
most of them are gone now
holes without holes really
because no one is missed
after enough time flows
no matter how loudly they howl

    your original comment: “matters only the scream very second you make it.”
    i inquired if it was a yoda quote. you wrote Frank Oz. Frank Oz is/was the pupeteer for yoda (among others, and among being a film director himself). the end.

    you said ‘puppeteer who did yoda’ and i thought of shari lewis doing her hand.

    but no, it was me. i channel yoda zen.
