Went to the open mic at Cacao Lane Wednesday, played a few songs - longest I've played since I crushed my finger, and didn't have any pain. Hooray!
Interesting episode afterwards:
the Buddha said, "do not drink alcohol"
I've never quite agreed with the Buddha on that one
and he's not
sitting at this bar
next to a young man who wants to buy us all shots
to toast the memory of his dead girlfriend
if I were the Buddha
maybe I could say something amazing about the
illusory nature of birth and death
that would help ease his pain
but I am not the Buddha
