Are The Good Times All Gone?

9 May

for all the fans of Ignatius J. Reilly out there. I hope this does not offend proper theology and geometry. If it does, well…

A GREEN HUNTING CAP
Reilly’s supercilious blue and
earflap and collar.

That Ignatius had himself broken
hot myself.
Everything.

Gag several
One of the customesrs just spilled
they drink
of history temporarily fading,
don’t know what’s happening
to you,

tolerant of this gaffee when one considers
I had witnessed one on the television
so many times. A man with eyes, that
squeeze the soul slightly.

And uncut hair and the fine bristles of
a beard, with a rich inner life like
Milwaukee or Chicago or some other…

leaning over a glass case an old man
in New Orleans arched an eyebrow
at Ignatius and his mother?
