poem of the day 04.19.20

moron

he was wearing
a leopard print
cowboy hat

he kept skipping up
and down the aisle of the store

shouting

i’m a moron
i’m a moron
i’m a moron

i’d never seen a man
so sure of himself
in all his life

anthony...just for you i'll destroy the "genius" and tell...a few days before my wife and i left for paris i was in a bagel shop on 13th ave in brooklyn. there was a guy in there in short shorts, a sleeveless shirt, and a leopard printed cowboy hat. he was real antsy. kept moving around and talking to himself while they made his bagel order.

there was a lady behind him. he tried hitting on her. extended his hand for her to shake, and when she wouldn't take it, he sort of beganing running/skipping up and down the bagel shop chanting "i'm a moron, i'm a moron" over and over again....he was still doing it after i got my order and left.

I knew it had to be true-who would invent such a thing?

Might have to steal the image of a leopard print cowboy hat for renku-now what season would that represent?
