Wildwood

It was my last best hope and expectation to meet up with a very special girl from Jersey in Wildwood. I was from Philly and she was from Harlem and our lives intersected in a small town in South Jersey. She was a sweet kid and wild as Friday night and we were supposed to meet for a weekend rendezvous in the seaside town of Wildwood. It was during the off season and there weren’t too many people around, which was how I liked it.

I holed up in a cheap hotel near the beach for a few days but she never showed. So I walked the streets and combed the beach a bit and I snapped a few pictures.

I recently attended an exhibition at the Cincinnati Art Museum entitled Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth. Turns out there is a whole sub-genre of painting called sous-bois, which means undergrowth, that explores the significance of the interior of the forest. Hmmm. I have been exploring the interior of the forest for years now. Here is my latest entry into this genre.

TRUMP LOVES HATE

First Trump said Obama was the worst president in history

Then he said what a great man he was

Next he will try to sell you a bridge in Brooklyn

Then some swamp land in Florida

He will bark you down like at a gypsy at a carnival

Try to sell you Christmas cards in June

The ship of state ain’t real estate it’s is now a ship of fools.

UP ALL NIGHT

David at 21C

The clock upbraids me with her time

I was out all night long with the Grand Marquis

First it was Heathers then it was Feathers at 21C

The Red Penguin most naturally

Topped it off with drinks at Jocks

I had bourbon on the rocks

The Grand Marquis had his with coke

We had to leave because we both were broke

I fell into bed and slept til 7 most fitfully

I was out all night long with the Grand Marquis.
