Happy Birthday Dave Gary Junior


ALL of the questions
are for me and me alone

need vis-à-vis desire
what. is. wrong. with. me.


Alone in the prison I constructed
the more I ponder the more secure it becomes

mirror mirror on the wall
who’d a guess I’d be my own fall


I guess it has been a long while
since I have been in here

It feels somehow much deeper, the
grief > loneliness > absence > regret


But I do possess the magic formula
if I do what I say and also as I do

ALL of the answers, hence
are mine and mine alone
