Last Night

Last Night

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Last night I took my skateboard

Out for a ride

Riding down the black streets

How quickly I flied

Then got goin too fast

So I reached out

And snagged a wrapped hay bale

One of many

On a huge wide field

Just lying about

I used it for balance

A sort of desperate thing

On the off chance

I might badly wipe out

But it was filled with laundry, not hay

And although this looked like a ranch  

It was actually a laundromat

With filthy clothes in the bale

Being a grease and grime habitat


When I looked back

I was being pursued

By a buncha pursuers

That were all in a very bad mood


Then the laundry bag split open

With filthy clothes spilled everywhere

Quickly I accelerated away  

Just taking a quick little look back 

Then stopping to open mouth stare

And saw people shivering in the laundromat

Cuz they had no clothing to wear

Nothing stinks quite like dirty laundry. I agree a dirty-laundry dive would be far worse than a skateboard crackup, & this fool is bound to end up with his face buried in some skivvy skid-stains. No, really, tho. I am catching the deeper meaning here -- clearly you mean to spoof those who grab onto any ole buoy/haybale in a storm! I am impressed by your philosophical profundity (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

This sounds like a Wiley Coyote cartoon on acid. I read it to my cat, and now she won't come out from under the bed. (She took a sock for comfort, at least)

Usually don't remember my dreams but for some reason or another, this one stuck
That was about the dumbest. lamest thing I ever read, till I stopped to think about it a little more. "All in a bad mood" kinda clinched it for me. I've been in a bad mood for decades.
