April 1st

(april fool in the west, wise fool in the east)

not crazy
talking to self
only crazy not to listen
midnight April 1st is magic
not bad luck - as they - transcribed
heys buster
better patch 'em breetches
here comes daisy all flocked and shorn
petals forever sacrificed to
"he loves me, he loves me not"
simple solution
drip warm-but-not-hot candle wax on those cacti stickers
cool down -- peal off

how are you this fine April lst morning
