SCENE AT THE PARK WITH FEATHERS

(’82)

////////////////////////////////////////////>>>

– I stand in front of the statue…

– The inscription reads:
Zig Zagger – Debtor – Slain in 1982
by an enraged creditor – Two hours A.D.
(After Default)

– I take off my hat…
sorry, Zig, nothing I could do,,,
good thermo-nuclear morning to you…

– I walk away, a tear in my eye –
after a few steps I look back…

– Incredible!

– Where Zig stood, there’s now
a parking meter, in violation!

(Overhead, a confused pigeon
drops his load anyway.)

(’87 – ’18)

– At my Life Shop –
Wrong places are on special,,,
Wrong times: three for a dime.
