Oi! Why is thee window sill o wet?
I see you and your ankles, not just your outline behind thee whisper-white curtains.
I should have pretended I didn’t see ’em.
Oi. I should have paid more attention to ’em when he were younger. I blame me-self.

Thoughts, Tuesday, January 24th, 2023
It turns out my license wasn’t authentic. I’d been carrying around a fake the whole time… and getting away with it!
But it wasn’t just me; everybody was doing it!
Why is it – I can smile all day, but when someone says, “Ok, smile for your picture now,” I look like I just stepped on a nail?
All my photo IDs look like I’m being held as a prisoner for a ransom of at least $25 bucks. I’m worth it.
My last license photo:
When I was at the ranch (how I refer to the bureau), in the 3rd corral, being beckoned to the desk, I stepped up, reached the counter carrying my belongings, and hurt feelings after being yelled at 5x and sweating bullets; the lady looked at me – I looked at her – she touched a button then said, “Next!”
That. Was. My. Photo. Moment.
Luckily, I got to keep that photo for two rounds with the mail-in renewal. Two full terms looking miffed.
So this time, I practiced beforehand.
I also got the usual beatdown, and I’m stronger for it.
God bless America’s ranches.
