Self Portrait G

A gray, monotonous street…

A gray, monotonous street

On a long and tedious day

Where your best friend used to live,

But, which now has a long detour

That takes you practically back to your own house,

Where you remember you forgot to TiVo X-Files,

And you see, instead, your neighbors’ daughter,

And her friend,

Both wearing pink roller skates, and you think

You had a purple pair once – maybe you still do?

And by the time you get back to the street,

You remember you forgot to buy shampoo, too —

That’s basically me
