Chasing the Shade

it's hot in New York City.
it's hot everywhere.
especially back in Florida.
yet some dumb dumbs don't believe in global warming.

I hate the sun.
it gave me my nose cancer.
so says the cute Jewish doctor.
who cute the dime out.

all I want is sand.
and a tree overhead.
so I can hide forever.
with the birds.

though I set out.
to find me a brand new life.
I don't want to forget her.
and I don't want to die.
