This toilet seat lid
is far from comfortable
as I stare down at the patterns
in the linoleum hall bath
trying to reel in the fading wisps
of the last great poem I wrote in my sleep
and lost in my consciousness.
The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure.
