DARN NEAR

darn near
not near enough
to establish itself
a winner
in today's market
of undesirable 
one-fingered
push-up artists
invading lemonade stands
doing hand stands
and back-flips

two for the road, please


You'll drink 16,000 gallons in your life
(gallons of what? of what? beer, whiskey, water? all of the above? of what?)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A cat's rage is beautiful, burning with pure cat flame,
all its hair standing up and crackling blue sparks,
eyes blazing and sputtering.

William S. Burroughs
