Unusually You

“Attention must be paid,”
said Stu, with BillyBlue
reclining on his spine,

“but when it is,
look out
for how much more of it

you’ll have to pay
tomorrow and the next day
and the next to all

the wayward and waylaid
forgotten misbegotten dark

that wait to grab you
by the hair or ankle,
throat or balls

and needle, wheedle
through to undermine
your every last

and presumptive
point of view.”

“Unusually you, today,”
BlueBilly felt the need
to say about, and to,

his transportation
and companion Stu,
“aren’t you.”
