The third light

Back to the pasta
watching the clock wishing time could go faster
eating too much, getter fatter which doesn’t matter
because we’re all in the same boat together,
aren’t we?

sometime’s it’s pizza and that eats me up
because of the calories,
and
I’m dreaming that Valerie’s coming over.

Back to the jigsaws,
pieces that puzzle which
tend to make more sense
to me.
