To the Morning of September’s Twenty-Eighth Day In the Year of Our Absent Lord Two Thousand and Fourteen

Let’s get one thing clear:
I am not bald.

This once blonde head of hair is plum,
Ripe with hair you, Padre, can only imagine.
Like damn.

But let’s be serious for a change, eh?
Take a task to a point beyond anger,
Perhaps strike a desert bargain.

I’m joking, of course.

I expect nothing of you;
You expect nothing of me.
And so we are both not wrong —
The essential thing.

  1. I love plum. And I love the defiant tone of this poem!
