parallel universe

I swear sometimes I am convinced I am in a parallel universe with everyone. I am buttermilking and being green, I am critical, I cry easily, (just teary) I cant fight, I am nice, I want to help, and thats the bad stuff. Just kidding the other stuff just isnt rated PG thats all.

Let me go! I want out of this madness.


What now?



We used to go to tang tang's
and then you stopped going to sharky's.


(more indignant)


We used to go to tang tang's
and then you stopped going to sharky's.
I asked you if you wanted your salsa
and you said yes. What now?

Things were different
when we wore the same t-shirts but now
you got your own socks and you dont like
ketchup. And it dont matter IF you fill
the ice tray cause now you smoke winstons
and you dont go swimmin'. What now?

You used to drink your wheat grass till you
found a worm in it and you were always scared
at Dr. Lockers Bungalows
to go behind the beaver dam.
do you still eat mc muffins
and shower with your watch on? What now?

I wrote this in 1991 or 1992, there was no game cube and I was on my bike on 3rd avenue and 33rd street when I passed two restaurants side by side - Tang Tangs and Sharkys and this dialogue popped in my head....zoom ahead to 2008 and I google and get these two photos..LOL
