Poem by James D. Casey IV

 

I Need a Brand New Friend

I saw
Andy Kaufman
playing Zydeco
in the middle
of a tired
rendition
of Light My Fire.

Wait,
look,
it’s really
45
playing
Tony Clifton!

Or the other
way around.

Think
about it,
man.

“Robby could really take me there.”

Krieger
that is.

Where’s Jim?
Oh, he’s somewhere…
waiting.
