I always firmly believe
that a certain book
or a fine gone girl will
save me in seconds.
especially the book,
but more over the girl
is seen through my eyes
as something of a day savior
amongst senator strangers.
I always get nervous when haircuts start,
just as I get nervous when I buy a new book
or meet a new girl;
there is something about expectation
and deliverance there that will never meet me.
be it in Brooklyn at a barber shop,
or in Queens behind a box store,
or at a comedy club in Midtown,
I am always afraid of the next
good thing to come my way.
