Harold’s Song

Harold’s taking pictures of his neighbor’s mailboxes. He hunches over steady in his shit kickin’ galoshes. And he hopes it’s more than blurry this time
In summing up his life he says ‘it’s hard to think it’s mine’. ‘so much gained so much lost in such a short amount of time’. ‘I didn’t do it all’, he said ‘and that’s all right’.
*I said, ‘hey Harold I am filled with doubt. will I ever figure my life out? He put his hand on mine and said ‘my girl don’t waste your time with that. You just open up your heart and you walk your path.
Now he’s making coffee. he pours the water slowly. It really never tastes good when you make it in a hurry. ‘I give it time,’ he says. ‘that’s what life’s all about’.
He’s had his share of love affairs. took a girl with bright red hair. Then suddenly just left her there. ‘She deserved the best,’ he said. ‘and I just wasn’t it’
*
In one hand he has a shotgun in the other a thesaurus. We head out to the porch to join the crickets in their chorus. We write poetry and call the gophers out to die.
He grabs himself a glass of wine, smokes a joint and says goodnight. I’m off to dance with demons, stick around if you’re not feeling up for the drive.
*
