fuzzy dice, bongos in the back
my ship of love is ready to attack
- Frank Zappa
he was my brother's best friend
and his parents owned the country pub
where my new wife and I were
staying over for one night of
we were in the back seat
hanging on as
he sped to the local drive-in
his idea of a night out for honeymooners
he drove one armed
the other one in plaster and
he passed over a room-temperature bottle
of Pineapple Pearl ... 'drink up!'
he yelled as he slid around
another gravel corner ...
some marriages just start like that -
then the film unspools ...
