Chicago Time

one cat ago or maybe two
when I lived in Chicago
and was married to a crazy person
with two crazy children
I used to enjoy sitting outside
reading the trib and drinking local coffee
then Caribou came
followed by Starbucks
and everybody left local
for trendy, with their French bulldogs
on alligator leashes, and their 100 speed
$2500.00 bikes
so local closed
after that I made coffee at home
and sat on my balcony on the fourth floor
and pretended to read the trib
while watching the clouds over the lake
and not listening to the nazi-skinhead-music
that vibrated the walls and windows
after that I moved to Texas
