26th April 2018

crowding from a stoneware pot

whatever happened
to my trademark coat,
worn through years of college
and afterwards.
Her mother called me the Sandyman
after the image
on the port label
and it suited well enough.
The fedora, antique even then,
fitting snugly over my shaved head
with just the tails of the Mohican
revealing the underside.
I still have the fedora
though its use is passe now
with the internet's creepy guys
but I still miss the duster
