“Sammiches”

“Supah”

Sammiches”

I love me a hearty sammich.

Some bread and lots of meat.

Condiment selections,

and extra, extra cheese.

A hero, spuckie, grinder,

hoagie, flatbread treat.

A sub for my friend, Sharon.

Wraps, tortas, paninis.

When concerning yourself with matters,

of the culinary.

You could do a lot worse,

than grabbing a gyro with tzatziki.

A pita full of hummus,

a steakbomb with the grease.

A poor boy dripping sauce,

all over your knees.

Here’s a little secret:

Last call, at Mike’s Roast Beef.

Order a super with sauce,

on an onion roll, with cheese.

If going to Christy’s,

and you can avoid Sal’s lazy eye.

A ham and cheese with picks and ungs,

will keep you satisfied.

Papa Gino’s Chicken Pahm.

Collier’s Boloney.

Ground Round’s Reuben cut in half.

A Jenny’s meatball dream.

You can keep your five-star restaurant,

I’ll take the corner deli.

An overstuffed sando,

is what makes a happy belly.

“Desitin Daddy”

Desitin Daddy,

Quarantine savvy,

Whittling a day to wit’s end.

Working from home,

Never alone,

Zoom session lagging again.

A virtual classroom,

Diaper fresh ass-wound,

In need of calming cream.

For all of the crying,

Squirming and prying,

Dry bum bum makes him serene.

“GUY’S NIGHT”

“Slainte” ©️C.P. Hickey 2017

“GUY’S NIGHT”

GATHER ROUND YE LADS OF YOUTH AND LIFE.

DRINK FULL OF AN EVERLASTING GLASS.

THE POUR IS GREAT THERE.

TIME TO CONVENE FOR THE YEARLY STOCK TAKING.

COUNTING FELLOWS, AND BLESSINGS, AND SLIGHTS.

LIKE MANY, MANY NIGHTS, THAT DELIVERED US TO THIS BRIEF RESPITE.

OH HOW MUCH COMFORT I FIND IN YOUR AGING FACES.

I CONFIDE A FRIEND KEEPS PACE,

AND REGRETS NOTHING WHILE PEERING AT AN EARLY MORNING MIRROR.

SUCH AN HONOR TO HAVE PASSED TIME WITH YOU ALL.

I REPEAT, AS IT BEARS REPEATING, A DISTINCT HONOR.

FELLOWSHIP, BROTHERHOOD, A LIFETIME.

THERE IS NOT MUCH BETTER.

CAMPFIRES, BALL BUSTING, SHARED SILENCE, PETTY DIFFERENCES; ALL PART AND PARCEL BOYS. 

PART AND PARCEL.

IT’S BEEN A PHENOMENAL RUN, AND UNPRECEDENTED.

NOT MANY ARE LUCKY TO HAVE A BEST FRIEND IN THIS LIFE.

WE EACH, MORE THAN SEVEN.

THE WHOLE IS TRULY GREATER THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS.

THE NIGHT BELONGS TO US, IT ALWAYS HAS.

IT WILL CONTINUE, UNTIL WE BELONG TO IT.

SLAINTE! LADS, SLAINTE!

“So…ciety”

“Can I Kick the Tires?” ©️C.P. Hickey 2021

“So…ciety”

Society

So…ciety

Lacking propriety

Feeding anxiety

Challenging sobriety

So…ciety

So what about me?

So what?

So inclined to pursue

My interests anew

So what, about you?

I don’t like your views

They make me uncomfortable

You must be normative cisgender racist of no particular color

You fit the profile

We all know what you are

We’ll identify you

So that others can understand your inherent ability to cause discomfort in this space

So what?

So it goes

So on and so forth

So, just so you know

Sobering

Soul

Soulless

Pain numbed

Down dumbed

So, about that thing…

A so called humanity

Discerning who can be or be seen

Relative to hurt feelings

Extreme

So extreme

I’ll Trump your facts with a meme

So important to me

Impacts what I see

Despite reality

It’s all about me

So what about me?

So what about me?

So…ciety

“In My View”

“Going Back” ©️C.P. Hickey 2021

“In My View”

In my view

You haven’t seen enough

You’re gaze is fixed on a point that affords no perspective

You look backward

Not forward

And never inward

In my view

You build bivouac biases

That become entrenched

In the shadows of self-validation

Looking for rights instead of right

Seeing the worst in all

In my view

You’re blinded by the rage of ignorance

Led astray by false prophets

Are a sore for sighed I’s

That is to say ego,

Id go as far as impaired

In my view

I see

I saw

I sought
