No past lurking like a phantom
The future? Not tricking me today into possibles and impossibles
All untrue, untrue
The caffeine I am weaned
Booze, a distant memory of last weekend’s 3 pints
Gordon Biersch with a Chicago teacher
Aches and pains from my beloved sport?
Not a knee, ankle, wrist, back, Achilles, shoulder, or calf
No Advil in sight
Worry about the wife and kid-no way!
They more likely to worry about me…the Chinese Queen and Princess
Arizona clan? They got their pine breezes, lakes, and Trader Joe’s
Worried about living on an island?
Teaching and coaching?
Writing in the mornings?
You see, I would have to make up some ills and blackness
Like an actor
Why? When real life is so sweet, and the freedom you can taste
