I woke up the other morning in a fantastic “spring” inspired mood!
It was reasonably warm...and the sun was finally shining!
…I spent a playful hour or so lying around in bed goofing off with Mary while an odd news expose’ of “50 Cent” (the rap artist) was on the television in the bedroom. Though I can’t say for sure (as I was not paying very close attention)… I heard him briefly explain how some investment in water made him a multi-millionaire… other than that… he had (so it would seem) absolutely NOTHING interesting to say.
…My day continued (skip now in my step) with a few errands… nothing really out of the ordinary… except maybe the more than usual (teenager driven) “boom-box” of a car …windows open…”WOOFING and HOOFING”… “THUMPING and BUZZING” …the “OCCASIONAL EXPLETIVE INSPIRED STREET POETRY” BARKING form the strained speakers! The vehicle RATTLING so much that you’d swear at this light stop light… that fender is coming off! …the BARKED words (?) translating into absolutely NOTHING interesting to say.
…Day moves into early evening… I collect Mary and we decide to go out for a bite to eat… something simple and easy… I suggest chicken wings and a couple of beers! …Mary just shrugs with a lack of enthusiasm… but decides to let me have my good mood and agrees.
We pull into the parking lot… YIKES! …WTF? we think …why so crowded?
We soon remember upon entering… “March Madness Basketball”! and a couple of hundred kids getting drunker by the minute!!! WHOOPING and YELLING…THUMPING and BUZZING!!!! …and the OCCASIONAL EXPLETIVES!!!!
We’re now too hungry to change venues… so we get seated as far from the bar as possible and try to have a conversation over the nearby THUNDER! The NOISE over our conversation leaving us both with NOTHING interesting to say.
A “couple’ of beers” turns into one… and we decide to go someplace quieter.
The sun is fully set as we enter a small bar we don’t usually haunt… there are a handful of people sitting quietly… though I immediately sense some anticipation in the room …? ……….. soon the mystery is solved….. open mic night …more specifically……..open mic…. POETRY night!
I’m still in a good mood…though slightly less… nothing a Gin and Tonic (or 6) can’t reverse!
…The first “poet” is some oddly un-bashful girl with a strange haircut, the typical array of typical tattoos… a strange gate (almost a limp)… and absolutely NOTHING interesting to say.
…Number two…. YIKES! …a “duck and cover”, “lock and load”, “gunna cap yo’ ass”, “steal your car”, “tell u what it be’ about” looking white kid with a ridiculously misplaced attitude talking AT us as though his suburban upbringing was some life sentence full of hate, beatings and pain! …all delivered with so much “wuss” and lack of rhythm that I thought he might actually be wearing a golf shirt under his “wife-beater tee”. …and yes… he had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING interesting to say!
Anyway, a few more cocktails and the “blur” we were after makes the rest of this day and night disappear…
We arrive home…. It’s late… all quiet.
We settle back in bed as though we’d never left that morning… a little more “goofing off” (no T.V. this time)…. Then just silence……………
Mary leans over and gives me a sweet and soft “goodnight” kiss….
And I say...
