avocado veggie burger rush

i wrote this poem after watching Synechdoche: New York
the boy asked me to tuck him in before the end
we talked about religion and art and my father
and how if he and i were stuck in a box for all eternity
we would probably just chatter away
and never know
and how big everything is and how weird everything is
and i made him promise again, for all eternity
throughout the generations
no hitting the kids, ever again
it ends with me
i’ll take it all, that none feel that
he agreed, as he always does
threw in a last reference to Homer Simpson
then i closed the door
went out to the living room
and watched the end of the film
Philip Seymour Hoffman, the best thing he ever –
who would have thought –
‘die’
