i guess kd lang was right

9 Nov

it’s november 2013 and a squirrel could care less.
it’s busy burying acorn gifts under christmas tree earth
and i don’t care either.
i’m scanning the horizon of a crowded room for jumper cable eyes.
sometime this life feels like one long drunk night
in search of a cigarette
and when it’s found and puffed,
all we get is dizzy
vowing never again!
until three streets later
the accordion plays.
