birthday boy

she asked me what I wanted

& I had very few ideas

ok howsabout need?

& I asked her for a mickey mouse watch

the eyebrows lifted

as did the top lip

I forgot about it

& then on my birthday

I got some booze always appreciated

& the mickey mouse watch

I had to get a bigger bracelet strap

she said all smiles

put it on

tell me why you needed it

no great story I said

just as a kid I always wanted one

& as we know now

if you don’t get things when you want ‘em

they become a need
