The Gunless Summer

And it's funny
like the time
you forgot
long division
or how the homeless curse you
for giving food instead of money.

The secret
according to my Tao
is to realize and accept
that at any given time
you are just as alone
as at any other time given--
regardless of the presence
of humanoid holograms.

Only then will your coffee taste better.
Only then will your cigarettes not kill.

Good morning and good morning
and good morning.
It's great to be "with" you today.
