“Nobody notices when your zipper is up, but everyone notices when it’s down.” Cynthia Lewis

Half Mast

I'm not much for flags,
something about a narrowing view
that addles the best minds and,
like a dog's territorial spray,
borders a fantasy about things
supposedly owned, and I was 
making this point over a jar or two,
when someone said, yours isn't 
flying too well, you're half mast,
and I zippered in a laughing hell.
