Uncle George (by way of Richard Brautigan)

Your hat
Gone now these
Twenty one years

Your addictions
Gone now

Your hat
It's in a drawer

For your birthday
I take it out
Wear it around

Tipping it
At all the pretty ladies

I loved this poem. So few words, and a developed visual of a person. Bravo!

I love How to avoid Asexual Assault, too. As I teach second grade, you won't likely find me posting anything like it, though.
