just one of them ...


Four in the morning:
lat / lon / elevation
my life’s a long
rambling vacation,
Bouncing around from
pillar to post
now I’m not generally
one to boast,

But I’ve had my share
of narrow close calls
slept with a few
dazzling dolls,
Wandered the streets
of Paris at two
o’clock in the morning
thinking of you,

I’ve flown The Concord
floated the Nile
each with a somewhat
different style,
Climbed lofty mountains
kayaked raging rivers
and Mogadishu
still give me the shivers,

So where are you
this morning, right now?
whose fertile field
do you gleefully plow?
A lucky bastard
whoever he is
you may be Elizabeth
to me always Liz,

Remember the night we met
in Phnom Penh
Foreign Corresponds Club
you asked for my pen,
Wrote your name
on a soggy beer coaster
and we climbed aboard
the express roller coaster,

Circled the globe
hotels and bars
oxen carts
and fast foreign cars,
Had sex in parks
and funky jazz dives
each of us living
at least seven lives,

Then somewhere in Bhutan
you said you were done
you said you’d had
way too much fun,
You caught a flight
back home to Dubuque
I felt like I was
Cool Hand Luke,

Doing time
for a dumb-ass stunt
wanting a homer
ending up with a bunt,
And now here I am
four fucking a.m.
nothing special
just one of them,
