oops, one small typo. 4th stanza, 3rd line should read "D. figured Dylan for a mime," not "I". if Donovan were threatened, especially by the Romans, I too would stand up, like everyone else, and say, "I am Donovan!" but as far as i know he's doing okay.

Fixed it. Hope you're feeling mellow (yellow). DL

I am, I really am. Hey, sunshine came softly through my window today. I could've tripped out easy, but, well, I guess, you know, I chose to stay. You-you-you-you-can just sit--whoa, sorry, channeling Joe Biden there ... I am curious, mellow ... I witness and wait. Stacey Abrams for VP!

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
