the man who has everything you need

his lucky quarter (year 1974)
is utilized to scratch off the
dried ink material covering
the numbers that will either
make or break his day.

he dabbles in various jobs;
sells here, buys there, sells again;
passes out with $400 cash,
wakes up with $50;
no memory of what happened,
but pictures and texts paints
a picture of a night filled with
rebellion, recovery, love, sex,
gambling, men, women, dancing,
drugs, drugs, drugs, drugs, and
…more drugs.

most importantly, what he’ll forget
will be something that you’ll never
forget because his life hinges upon
entertaining you with his personality
and when it comes to that topic,
he cannot be topped; no skyscraper,
no international space center,
no rockets to the moon,
no exploration to mars,
no Neil deGrasse Tyson cosmos serenade.

you’ll know it when he crosses your path
as it will never be surpassed by any given
individual; living or dead;
jesus or mohammad
has nothing on this
MAN. Our next prophet.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
