I was set to leave.
Where are you going Mother asked.
I'm going home.
Take me with you she said
and laughed a kind of wreck.
The woman to her left
said take me with you too
then the six or seven of them all
took the sentence on
like hail taking on a garbage can.
Take me with you haw haw haw.
Take me with you laugh laugh laugh.
Like a headache made of starlings.
I can't I said I have a wife and dog.
A dog haw haw haw haw.
A wife laugh laugh laugh....
