Excuse my rudeness, I said, I haven't slept for weeks, I said, & I've been writing the prose, I said, writing the prose & I've been very dishonest with you & it's not you it's not your fault you can't read at your grade level but if you would please read at your grade level.
Oh my god, Lois, I said. Oh my god, Robert, I said. Oh my god, Mr. O'Brien, I said.
NO. THIS ONE, LITTLE VERSION OF ME!!!
Excuse my rudeness I sometimes forget we're in public you've not hit puberty yet
& we're perhaps in full view of god & all, I said.
NOT MY PROBLEM, GODDAMNITALL! he said.
Excuse my rudeness but you really should know not to touch my sleeve with those sticky little digits, I said. Put... them... uh... there! I said, put it there, I said. You're on your way now remember the lines & spaces
Shit? Really? You said.
Yeah, I said.
FUCK YOUR MOTHER, he said.
Shhhhhhhhhhh.... Notice the lines. Notice the spaces. There are, in fact, cases where in every good boy, I said, like you, I said, deserves fudge. But... few boys get the fudge they deserve. If they did, we'd be in a better place, I said.
Y'know... as a species, I said. But the facts are clear, Ed. Some good boys get the mumps & some bad boys get silver spoons & some boys REAL FUCKERS THOUGH THEY BE, he said, get to make the rules for the rest of us.
End gut-busting dollar food,
for adiposity costs extra.
Eliminate Great Britain's drunken fairies,
for alcohol corrupts Englishmen.
End gall bladder drainage forever,
for acid corrodes endometrium.
Engage, Geordi. Beam down, Ferengi.
Fuck Alaska. Climb Everest!
Even godly boxers do fine
fighting all Christmas Eve.
Even gorgeous brunettes desire furry
fellows & complicated existences.
Even great birds die flying
fearlessly & close-eyed.
Even good boys doth frequently
fail at creative endeavors...
& you're no different, slick.

When the Yule season rolls around, I am hopeful that some thoughtful souls will silence the all-too-commonplace holiday jingle-jangle in the room and allow sufficient space and stillness to play — and •listen• to — this most etherial take on a classic German carol. Philip David Morgan
