"Greggypoo"

don't act like you don't like that nickname
Helter Skelter and Carl Jung, you understand

there's something about the way you say "Helllo!"
a high-pitched first syllable, low on the "o"

watching the sunset next to your apartment
you give a goat some of your "Granny's"
chocolate chip cookies through the fence

a chef, but you thrive on mac and cheese
Beanie Weenies and milk, always milk
milk with spaghetti, milk with Wendy's food

your lungs grow tight
but the river, gallons of fresh water
flowing through you

makes polished glass and smooth stones
out of your jagged organs,
and no matter how much we joke
you are not emotionally butterfingered
