bitching in poetry

The cable guy came.
The cable guy fixed.
The cable guy left.
One hour passes.
Modem blinks.
Blink blink
bong bong beep whirr
the sounds of modem death.
Digital cable stops short.
Kung fu movie
playing freeze tag.
Cable company apologetic
but not apologetic enough.
Tomorrow, they say.
8-6
sometime
we will be there.
Tomorrow I say.
Come on over.
If I'm here, great.
If I'm not, fuck you.
Credit my accont please.
You monopolistic dictators.
Thank you.
Have a nice day.

part two

Tomorrow
reading program launches;
big day!
community workers come to school
read to kids
make them excited
coffee and donuts are served,
what a day!
Uh oh, there's the phone again
fifth time today
"Sorry I can not make it tomorrow!"
Don't worry, I tell them.
I wish much death on you.
Bastard.
Nervous breakdown ensues.
Anyone have a cigarette?
Vodka?
Cyanide?
