Why Are We Gathered Here Today?

I’m forgetful and the air floats by empty.
Some dressed for opera, most dressed
for a day in the garage. It is a challenge
being comfortable and to be attractive
when the game has torn our heart muscles.

Heat appears as our guest,
but not as loudly as she might have been.
If we didn’t have all of our orange barrels
and lane closures, would we show up
to work?

Snot is running
down his ramp. Bike rider hit
by car dies. Man is presently
stuck under garbage truck
on 137th, and I can’t do anything.

    “most dressed for a day in the garage.” Are you starting a new clothing line here? Lawn mower/paint can chic.

      Clothing lines are difficult to create. You must like what you naturally would not like.
