watching "The Young & Restless", waiting
for the doctor of no good news,
"Corinne and me," he said, "We're
the old and useless." Then he wept to think

so he didn't. Later, at home, down by
the garage, affairs in order, one bullet
for her; another for him, real quick,
so she wouldn't have time to wonder
"Where is George?
