Memories of grandpa

Grandpa always wore an old fishing cap.

I remember it was covered

from brim to brim

with all of these colorful & expensive fishing lures.

There were green ones, blue ones,

yellow ones, red ones …

some shaped like fish,

& a few home-made ones

that didn’t resemble

anything at all.


But grandpa was not a very good fisherman,

and was never known

to have ever caught anything of note.

Except for that one day at the lake,

as the tale goes,

when, he removed his cap too quickly,

and he caught

an entire human scalp.


Though the force wasn’t with me that afternoon, it did promise to catch up with me later


Remembering that per the trefological calendar the new year does not officially begin until Februrarary the durst (sic), I hope you have a safe Dec. 31st

A man once said to me,

“Live every day as if it were your last,

for to-morrow, you could wake up,

walk outside,

& get hit by a bus with spears

sticking out the front of it.”

That man’s name was Mad Max.

So, from all of me, to some of you, I wish you a

Blithesome Pre-New Year!
