Family Reunion
(Spectrum of Fools)



trying to get together
to finally get together
finally
to share something
some thing
any thing
and it all seems
fine
and I'm funny
so funny

in the light
you look so old
(when did we get so old?)

and a couple of beers bring out the demons
and I remember
younger feelings
a dart in my leg
"get off the bike"

three beers
"check please"
six dollars
(for the beers)
and it's over
and they look so old
and they leave
tuesday
