My Dog & Me [Published in City Weekly 01/10/17]

I was running away from home, you see;
and I was feeling so alone, was me.
Just my dog and me,
drinking tea….we were taken up in a cyclone.

We traveled for many miles, you see;
my clothing went out of style, poor me.
Just my dog and me,
killed a witch, you see…and went through many trials.

To the jaded city we went, you see;
on getting home I’s hell-bent, was me.
Just my dog and me,
we got home, did we…and never looked back again.

August 1992

It was early in the morning..
Mother woke me, and told me..
We cried for an hour before
she woke my other siblings
On the Steps of the Madeleine
The night crept upon and from the corner of my eye- saw the sky, did I…saw the sky.
Slowly I walked unto my fate, had a date, did I…with the church.
What’s worse..was that she’d stand me up, all alone I would wait with my mind in a cup
of whiskey that burned my very lips to the touch, so much, did it…so much.
The bells struck ‘leven as I gazed up at Heaven, so far away it seemed before me.
I cursed and I stumbled, the sky I heard rumble, I took a tumble down the steps of the Madeleine.
On the steps of the Madeleine I said a prayer, but no one was there as I sat well aware
that the ‘morrow would come just as days were the same
‘had my own self to blame all the same, all the same.
On the steps of the Madeleine I prayed.

December Dreaming

I think of you coming for me and then hope
that my dream will come true and then probably nope.
I’m a dope to believe in a December Dream
where I will be back in my darling, Hawai’i
I imagine your smiles…your beautiful faces;
you traveled the miles…seen different places.
Snow races in Utah can be so much fun
skating and playing on the lake eating plums.
Snow men and snow women, taubagins galore
down we go with Grangpa in a snow dash once more
Reunite with the family, before the long trip
eggnog with the brandy, I do take a sip
Seafoam salad and puppy chow, ruff-ruff
Cousins in dozens oh my family’s a puff
Aloha California, aloha again
Aloha Honolulu, take me there my friend.
Back to Nanakuli, find the love of my life
work in Waipahu and marry my wife
Kristol Kimiye I will see you that day
’till then say a prayer light a candle my way.

November

I was out in the *hortus, one cold wintry day
when a gustus of smoke pasted my poor face.
To the *taberna take me, I will not fight
I go *ad the tavern to relieve my past plight.
The sirens *lacrimat for all to hear:
November, November, the coldness draws near.
The cold days draw near, and a smile I have
ye, I have a smile even while I feel sad.
The narrator *narrat on the block in the street
how we meet, let me see, leat me hear, let us greet!
The *ignavus run from the rum smelling lip
who kisses the beautiful, intoxicated wit.

*garden.*shop.*to.*cries.*tells.*cowardly

Felix

Felix the cat was so lucky
in fact
that when he was in the public’s eye;
he could do no wrong whilst he sang his song.
Feles Felix was just black and white.

Pedo

Look at me, what you see is what you get;
and so it seems, you don’t quite know me yet.

Don’t get upset….forgive, forget.
The time has now come….you need to know: that

I WANT… TO CUT A PEDO!*
I JUST NEED… TO LET ONE GO!
BABY I KNOW… YOU DON’T WANT ME TO…
….CUT MY PEDO IN FRONT OF YOU…BABY IT’S TRUE…

Listen to me, sometimes they’re quiet-S.B.D.
Just so you know, when they get bad I’ve gotta go.
Don’t hold a grudge, as the smell seeps through my pants.
I’ll give you a nudge, to let you know in advance, that:

I WANT… TO CUT A PEDO!*
I JUST NEED… TO LET ONE GO!
BABY I KNOW… YOU DON’T WANT ME TO…
….CUT MY PEDO IN FRONT OF YOU…BABY IT’S TRUE…

*PEDO is the Spanish word for FART, in case you have not yet figured that out 🙂
