Deciduosity

When we are born, we have a full head of hair and no teeth. We lose the baby hair and grow teeth. Next, we grow real hair and we lose the baby teeth and grow permanant teeth. As nature and luck would have it, from then on, we begin to lose things, a tooth here, an appendix there, sometimes a digit or an appendage. Sometimes we have things taken away on purpose.

Next, the hair starts to go away again, except this time it does not come back. Our eyesight deteriorates, we need glasses. Hearing starts to go, then slowly, a bit at a time we lose other things, the appendix, teeth, a finger here, a toe there, perhaps a gall bladder. Man is a deciduous being! I call this deciduosity.

Full Moon

I watched a film of some man shooting a rhino with a tranquiler gun.
The Rhinosteraurisisisis started running around. 
Then he moved really slowly until he stopped.
Then he fell over...
I know how he felt.

James Dean ???

I watched this guy order a shot of Tequila
and proceed to "Toss It Down"
(The same shot 4 times)
and go through the tough guy macho changes
of a sidewalk commando
with clean tennis shoes.

2 A.M.

I was totally willing
To get lost in that kiss
While the bar was closing around us
And everyone was going home.
But you escaped because
you thought I was just trying to get into
Your pants
When it really didn't matter
Whose.
