the grouch once called himself a simple man who liked pretty things. what an admirable thing to be it seems to me. living in brooklyn. working in advertising. tons of fun with a slender frame and few cases of wit. drink up.

look what the tide dragged in

Driftwood is cool, no doubt,
I’ve heard its praises sung;
But a bottle, is a bottle,
and they’re on a higher rung.
One washed up, onto a shore,
an empty bottle, and yet more.
See bottles hold messages;
they don’t get turned to doors.

Bottles. Bottles. Floating on water.
Bottles. Bottles. You’ve never been hotter.

Bottles aren't really feeling careful,
for they have no feelings ‘tall.
And they”ll live to float another time,
unless, hucked at a wall.
Oh bottle, sweet bottle,
where are you if not in my hand?
Probably waiting to depart,
for some far off foreign land.
