“as soon as I am able”

turn down the volume
and listen to the raccoon’s story
doc’s fingers resting on his wrist
counting beats per second
heart racing for good reason

nobody has the time
to take everything into account
so we condense his story
into a nineteen sixty-eight song
one we love to play over
and over again

some scars heal and
others simply live to tell another tale
much like that of good rocky’s revival

october two thousand nineteen
