Where R my Glasses

Labour day
Harold Bemis time
but no
there’s too much
and never enough time
too much Summer
ending too soon for Fall.

It’s a morning moon
Burlington bridge
smoke stax threatening lay offs
‘let’s wait and see what ‘Murica does come election

Megalo Wine
and Netflix
or Crave
another bottle
$14 for a six pack of lime shot beer


it’s Labour day
a wknd – let’s make it 7 or 14
i’ll settle on 4
you and me with a hundred bucks
99 away from overdraft
before closing time
walking the dog trails of afternoon

let’s choose Chinese food
Trenton’s Golden Wok
drive the Bay bridge
the Deseronto bridge
drive home
