Proud Michaels
(c) writeen by Glenn Nuotio

I won’t get through The Wreckage
or This All Happened
it's always someone else;
no Big Why on my shelf.

I should really be reading
instead of celebrating
each Fancy Pants party
that I won’t go to,
Thanks for the invite!
Boys ,
doing us proud
aging so well with words
make me an offer that I can’t put down.

Oh, to be around just locals
(for a change)
and oh , to be around just friends
tearing off our shirts
and trading them around
laughing though our livers hurt
or until the stories end.

I’ll have to finish this later
But for now, I’m so sorry, Alligator,
I guess the distractions of sex,
Down to the Dirt,
and That Time of the Night

Chip Vendors pretend we all get off in the end.
I forget if I ever got things right,
but but
Thanks for the invite!
Boys ,
doing us proud
aging so well with words
I'll drop these names in a crowd,
aging so well with words
make me an offer than I can’t put down.
