Tour Poetry Day 7: A Day Off

A day off
I want to be like Tom Sawyer
Running through the wilderness
With a fishing pole
Casting a line out
To see what bites
But I’m older now
And I know that
If you aren’t careful
You may pull something in
That you don’t want
Why is it that queer personality traits
That seemed cute as a child
Start to stockpile
And close in on you
More and more every year?

You must fend them off
Like Saint George
The Dragon Slayer
Or you just might find yourself
In a shitheap of trouble
Trust me, I know people
That have gotten
Quite squirrelly 
Over the years

Ridgway, Colorado 8/6/14
