Show Poem: August 27, 2016 Lawrence, KS @ Replay Lounge #poetry 

Everywhere
The locust song
A larger Jeff Tweedy 

Pausing for our jockeys
To brush our manes 

Opening our eye slits 

By the hearth we wait
For our urges to instruct
The next move 

Quick trip is laughing at us
Pink drink expands
The rear view mirror 

Rain drops turn to rasins 

Diamonds are jokes
Falling from a truck
We dust them off
And put them in our pockets 

There are many kids
In the sour patch
Looking for good homes 

We pay extra for the head 

No fighting in the car
No sex in the champagne room

Too much chicken
For one day 

No dancing in the car
No money for nothing 

I expected less 

Or nothing less expected
Surprised
