I hear Creed will be the next Rocky Installment

we tell Rocky
‘love ya but get the fuck outta the way’
pose then run the steps
pay 5 dollars to enter the museum
and stare at Monet, Chinese rooms
early Christianity, and Gustav
we grab liquor and walk the
try on fedora’s
purchase a flipped up panama
drink in the hotel bar
testing american beer – watch
Canadian baseball – telling the bartender
‘it may be the Jay’s but tonight we’ll cheer for Philly’
the morning we’ll enjoy complimentary breakfast
we’ll sit in silence and think about
comfortable shoes
repack the car and tell New Jersey….
but who the hell cares about
New Jersey
