Wiper/savior

Somedays you’re
the windshield
somedays you’re
the bug

Me? I’m the guy
with the red rag
hanging from gray
overall pocket who
cleans up the mess

General admonition

Reserved seating

this is not first-come,
first-served

you cannot get a ticket
from a scalper

only from my personal
box office

not ‘second-run’ house
my heart is the first-run
feature now playing

only the latest and best

Sit back, relax.
Enjoy the show.

And please keep your
dirty feet off of the seats
in front of you.

Dunking debunking

Consider the common donut

if you purchase one
it comes with a hole

you can purchase
just the hole, but it
is not a hole at all

it is a ball; a doughy sphere
made from a disc that once was
where the hole is now, yet it was
never truly a hole in its own right

Buy the donut,
you get the hole
buy the hole
you get no donut;

just a glazed orb bearing little
resemblance to the hole it is
supposed to represent

donut sold separately

Life is like a donut:
some days you’re the donut,
some days you’re the hole

Indulge.
