If Not For You

Mikio’s garden is a bit unkempt.

But not everyone thinks of bees and insects as something to be eradicated.

They deserve our respect too.

Mickey hears music everywhere, even in his dog’s barking.

We’ll rally round the flag boys, rally once again, shouting the battle cry of Maytag.

Pajama People

I’m basically the same, I just sleep in my clothes.

So, really I’m always in my pajamas too.

No judgement, we’re all in this togther.

My Guitar Don’t Weep

My Guitar Dont Weep2

She stutters sometimes, with the syncopation.

Hums and purrs when she’s in the pocket.

Speaks Latin, mixolydian, dorian, and gypsy.

And she’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind.

Don’t get me wrong, she can be tender.

But tears are for violins and cellos.

Not this rough and tumble girl from round the way.



There’s more sides to Mickey than tragedy. The boy can flat out throw down.

That’s his guitar.

Stay tuned, they’re going to mix it up.

The Deluge

You have to feel for the poor bastard. He’s had better days.

This one was like a kick to the stomach.

Hopefully, he’ll get through this.
