end/beginning

“Don't use the phone. People are never ready to answer it. Use poetry.” 
― Jack Kerouac


Here
is the snapshot
of your life beginning
on forgotten sidewalks.
Maybe
you have spent
sporadic time
kicking, and
conversing with my
dad.  Back and forth.

One raggedy day

after lunch
at the old Desert Inn Appleby's
dad left a tip
for our waitress,
yelled across the bar
"use this towards charm school."
Beautiful insane in me,
baby, everything is
alright forever, forever and forever.
