Things I do and things I want

I work in a gas station with Sheryl Crow

I work at Domino’s pizza with Lionel Ritchie

I want to start a rock ‘n roll supergroup with Eddie Van Halen, Nelson Mandela, and Chevy Chase

I want to pick the Statue of Liberty’s nose

I want to bless the White House with cranberry juice

I want to work in a coffee shop with Dan Akroyd

I want to play tuba in a three-piece band

I write fan letters to the moon

I succumb to idiocy

I listen to The Beach Boys’ Christmas album all year long

I have no idea when to end this poem

I convulse after eating

I tell horrible lies
