Unblocking arteries

‘brickin it’
but
still in the thick of it
getting sick of it
time
to go fishin’.

Mississippi.
it’s
Tom and I because
Tom always gets top billing
but
I’m willing to bet
he’d swop.

Sunday
rode in on a white horse
pale and drawn
before dawn,
dismounted
counted the hours
until dusk.
