Hardtack Rat: chewing on life one bite at a time
You are like a ghost, A caricature of being To me, since my birth
You were never there for me And are now certainly absent: A lack of ambition and distance
You shoot the breeze Like, for years, we’ve Known each other
After four and thirty years You’re still nowhere near Action nor relationship
To our surprise, as well as theirs, A robot brought out food on tiers. It even played music for a birthday!

This weird tree grows in Lake Number Five A breeze gently bleeds wavelets while Gum balls litter the land and water

Photo by Clay Banks on Unsplash I got into some backroad That went up, then went down It twisted left and curved around Thank God I didn’t want to be found
Has anyone ever thought something dying can be so magnificent!?
