5 Generations Gone Wrong


Another glass of milk, another
birthday with the smiles of dusty teeth
quenching for thirst. Pack more tobacco.

makes you fall off your horse
Cowboy! Marijuana made a good season.
The Indian knits a blanket, the elderly
weep and everyone stops for church
on Sunday to get their weekly dose
of inspiration.
