ONLY ONCE I WORE WHITE
:And it wasn't at your wedding:
We tumbled through the flower beds and
the guy who ran the banquet hall got all
pissed off about that one - frogs in
the wine vat, or something, blaming us.
I said - 'Hey, Bud, twenty minutes ago
that was water. You're lucky I came
along.' Then the ringmaster came in
blasting acorns with a spoon. 'I never
saw that before. What's if for?' He said
'Don't know yet, it's a trick I only just
learned on the way here.'
He took me aside for a smoke, and
asked, 'What do you do for a living?'
I said, 'I write absurdist poetry. How
about you?' He smiled and said,
'Yeah, me too!'
