Gary

Gary squats before the Safeway
on blue sky days.

Today he reads
Raymond Chandler.

Hair a little wild…
the professorial air.

Bipolar. Schizophrenic. Alcoholic.
Addicted. Abused. A reader?

Hobo and hoboed.
He’s chosen him, or I him.

Use a buck, Gary?
Why thanks.

County stir’s not so bad.
Chandler says the same.

Take care, OK?
Sure thing, you bet.

Take care, OK?

Sure thing, you bet.
