A PART OF ME IN BINGHAMTON, NY

A PART OF ME IN BINGHAMTON, NY

Parts of me are in “Bingo-town”

Where I was mostly raised…

Although I’m not returning

I’ll remember it all of my days.

There’s blood in the breezeway of the house

Where we used to live…

A table saw met my finger

And I had the blood yo give!

I must has lost some coins

Into the sewer in town…

If they’re found you can have them

Colored thick green and brown!

In a school now demolished

I wrote my first poetry…

Buried somewhere under there

Is my notebook labeled messily.

All the air molecules I breathed,

You can have too…

I made clouds exhaling loud

Until I turned blue!

There may be some body fluids,

My nose ran constantly…

If in the lab they lead you to :”IT”**

Just chalk IT up to me!

** Whatever great discovery “IT” turns out to be!

BRAIDY CAT

BRAIDY CAT

Whose afraid of the braidy cat,

The braidy cat.

The braidy cat…

Whose afraid of the braidy cat,

Who licks and twists your lovely long hair?

His paws are made for combing hair,

Combing hair,

Combing hair…

His paws are made for combing hair

And knotting it in bunches!

Wouldn’t you want a cat like that…

A cat like that,

A cat like that…

Wouldn’t you want a cat like that,

Who does hair as he munches.

He’ll cough up hairballs for you…

Hairballs for you,

Hair balls for you…

He’ll cough up hair balls for you,

Of your hair from his tummy!

–Jonathan Caswell
