regular Joe


I wondered today
perhaps myself is someone who knows and understands
has patience and pride
all aspects of the Regular Joe

and in the folly of my youth
I fell in love with fiction
and created in thine own image
a character
wise and wiley
wild and raw
screaming and running through the kingdom
scratching around for a trap door to escape through

what if I woke up
half my life later
and shed the costume?
waking up bleary eyed
brushing my teeth and hair
donning back my suit
and heading out into the town
looking for honest work...
