Come on bird I haven’t got all day
my gut is screaming for another coffee
and baring that
another pee

one of those winter days
that looks like the trailer to God’s own movies
while the rest of the country
is in snow right up to their hienies

And water freezes before it hits the ground
and your breath freezes to the scarf over your face
and don’t go licking any metal object
that’s one thing your tongue will regret

Come on bird fly away
‘cause this old guy
ain’t got
all day.
