“Drain at the Bottom of the World” 2008

“you can be what ever you want to be little Bob”….that’s what they said…not what they really meant…I mean I couldn’t be a Nar whale….a stack of potato chips…a fruit bat…not even a line on a piece of paper…or a spool or colored thread…it was going to be something like a…”Mr.” or “Sir”….maybe “Dad”…drab olive on an even more drab yellow….I was to “Husky” as my mother put it…to be in the olympics….couldn’t grasp the math to be in the science fair…other than putting stuff in a jar…and making labels…for it….but what kind of stuff…it was going to be a long arduous process…”one that might take years”…is what the Pediatrician said…he thumped my knee with a red…triangular…rubber hammer….we got a malt on the way home…so it may take some time….I set the alarm for 13 years later…3:26 pm….somehow knew that…combination of numbers was going to work in my favor…tried a few sleepless nights….mixed in with the ones that weren’t….so I guess it all evened out until that day…the kid selling papers…said “Here’s your change….sir”……
