Diary Entry 24:

I’m paying the price for going out late/staying up early with Gabe. Still feeling under the weather. 7:34pm. 7:52pm My dorm. Based on Cassius Marcellus Coolidge’s A Bachelor’s Dog.




that six-lettered lap dog

he sells with a smile

can only afford

a rolled-over belly.

Barking at the telly,

he spits a tooth-marked chimney to the side

and fills his lungs with smoking cash.

With beer on the burner,

Turner churns in the distance.
