It’s 0233. I’m sitting here with a bowl of pork fried rice. I like pork fried rice. I like Chinese hot mustard. I like Chinese hot mustard in my pork fried rice. When I bought my pork fried rice tonight I picked up several packages of Chinese hot mustard. My wife put my Chinese hot mustard packages away, someplace, unknown to me. I’m depressed. I cannot find my Chinese hot mustard packages that I got with my pork fried rice which I bought tonight. Suffice it to say it would be foolish of me to wake my wife to find out what she did with my Chinese hot mustard packages. So, I guess I’ll eat my pork fried rice without my Chinese hot mustard because it’s 0233 in the morning and waking the person who put away my little packages of mustard at this time of the night could be hazardous and extremely unwise. So, I’ll just suffer.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
