The Expolsive Bow Tie

One fantasy is being a country music songwriter
and writing about pandemics, but also
my kids who would look terrific in
country music videos.
I also think about wearing bow ties, sometimes,
if I'm lonely.
But I'm not lonely so I'm not thinking of that.
I'm thinking about Merle Haggard,
but I'm not.
Sorry about the songs I keep singing.
You are no doubt sick of this shower.
If only we could get cleaner.
Then, like a mean meat machine, I might
make a real bomb and blow this.
