game 3 of this year's world series

is in a rain delay
so i am here
posting
pictures of the tiger stadium demolition
gone now
one of the greatest ballparks ever built
ever destroyed
a lot of history
gone now
instead
we have a corporate ferris wheel food court behemoth
that is neither good for watching baseball
or for playing baseball
having said that...
back to the living room
waiting
raining
it's october...

went in for an MRI today

never had one before
so i wasn't really sure what to expect
the noise startled me
but i pretty much fell asleep after about 15 minutes-
i started to imagine that the sound
was some type of emergency siren
or horn
evacuation
i had to grab everything that was dear to me
so i grabbed my wife
my dog
and my digital files

i had time left
to spare
you see, i didn't have any money to grab
no 401k
no stocks
or bonds
or papers of any kind for that matter
hit hard by this recession
i am almost a "ghost"
as my friend would put it
off the grid
the radar,
evacuation
and all i have besides my wife and dog
are a bunch of fuckin' dvd's
filled with photographs
my art
my joy

m
r
i

Magnetic
Resonance
Imaging

drifting off to sleep
to somewhere else
not better
just different
sometimes
that's all i can really ask for
hope for
a break from this
from myself
my thoughts
my mind
my choices
all of my poor decisions

m
r
i

and just like that it was over,
more abruptly then it all began
and then i walked out of there
back out in to the world , that
i was trying to get away from
and instantly,

i was alone with myself...

there was a time

when detroit's economy could support 2 cleaners
right next door to each other
either that
or they fought to the death
each one trying to clean a shirt better
cheaper
faster
it was the death of them
their love for a clean shirt
at an affordable price
it's a different world we're living in
that's for sure...
