Beagle in the City #277

Dear doggie journal

Spare tires are GREAT.

Dad says we probably ran off the road last night because of the Dinosaurs!

It was OK though. He grabbed me and kept me from falling out the open window.

Dad showed me how the wheel bent when we hit that persons driveway…

My dad is the greatest. I knew he had everything under control. So when someone stopped to say hello, I went and told them “we’ve got this.” Just like dad always says… he says “it’s ok, I’ve got this. Everything is under control.” Real calm like that. It makes me feel better and it must have made them feel better too. Because then they left.

After that, dad asked me to sit in the car and let him know if I saw any mountain lions or bears. He kept asking for a Tea Bar. But I didn’t see any tea in the car so I just waited.

Today, dad says, we are going to go get a REAL jack and a Tea…T Bar and Flash Light.

Simon: Dad! Why are you not kerosened !! It’s a FANDEMIK

Ethan: I work grocery, I’ve been working all day and most nights. Let’s take you guys outside and walk.

Jazz: Hey friend! I

Ethan: Hey Cheese.

Jazz: I love cheese! Where is the cheese? Do we have cheese?

Simon: The kerosene Jazz! There’s no cheeses left.

Ethan: First off, it’s quarantine. Second, we have to go walk.

Jazz: So, why are you called dad? And how come I don’t know you?

Ethan: because we are best friends and I’m your dog sitter. I also brought you cheese.

Francis Cash #2

Francis: So, how’s the Gym?

Ethan: It’s good. You know, it’s another weight to carry. (Laughs) I crack myself up.

Francis: Yeah, yeah, What’s for suppers?

Ethan: I was thinking we could try this steamed salad…and wait for the kicker, pomegranate juice…

Francis: Mmm Well that sounds healthy and nutritiously delicious.

Ethan: Francis! Put that down!

Francis: What? Do we not eat desserts first?

The last dream you built

The last year inside the house you built

She said it’s ok if you can’t sleep

It’s just the sounds inside your head

All the stories you dread

It only takes some time

To get used to

—–

Outside

The clown goes mad

The media’s on repeat

He can’t figure out

It’s all marketing

He’s selling the future

But he’s still standing there naked

——

Inside

And up the stairs

Dylan lights a match

Stops and laughs

Says he’s about to go electric

I stop typing

And hand him another cigarette

—–

Down the street on the corner

Of lost and found

Seeking out some caffeine

Her eyes keep me at arms length

I reached in my pocket

Handed her a Honees

She smiled running her fingers through my hair

And kissed me

—-

Hendrix walks in

Sighing, asked for some help with his lyric….

—–

These times are all black and white

The youths ran away

With the color….

She cries

And says there’s no more room left to create in

I laughed

And said the sky is falling over

It’s only, the mirror…

Ethan: ….Because I know you don’t actually like pickles that’s why.

Francis: Ok… ahem, in a world, where I don’t care.

Simon: Lets get sandwiches!

Francis: Hey look, the pizza man…

Ethan: I’m NOT giving you pizza…I don’t want to clean that up…

Francis: But it’s my treasures…

Ethan: Far from it.

Simon: I want a sandwich but with extra sandwich…

Ethan: Francis, I don’t know how to tell you, but you’re fat.

Francis: Lies! But, I am hungry.

Ethan: you’re on a diet

Francis: This is my winter coat. . . It’s to protect me from predators.

Ethan: does it protect you from diabetes?
