Not Her Baggage, Anymore

He thought he could maneuver it all inside my tidy little apartment.  
I should have read the signage when he whipped out his laundry 
from a hard case luggage that held a dirty peace sign, "Woodstock."
He belched and asked, "Where do you keep the toothpicks babe?" 

A couple of months later I had a hamper full of shirts and an unpleasant
odor that wedded my carpet and my Kia.   
After paying good dollars to a shrink named Dr. Zunaleski, I drove my 
butt over to where he worked and returned his luggage. 
"Where is my mohair?" he queried as he rummaged.   "I cut it 
into tiny pieces and stuffed my lion with it. "  "So that's how it's gonna be?"
I quoted my all time favorite Babe Ruth, " Never let the fear of striking
out keep you from coming up to bat" Then I walked out the door got into   
my car and shot south. " Baby you can drive my car" the Beatles crooned
to an asphyxiated psyche. When I got to the sea side I killed the engine
and watched  the sun go down without a fight.

The End.
