About my uncle bob


In the TV screen
he mumbles back at me
curse words and video games

in the basement under smokey lights
"Mad Scientist" works quiet at night
mixing quarter sticks of dynamite

"I could blow the walls off of the house!"
"I could leave a big hole in the ground!"
"Making movies with my brothers"
"Blow this hard hat to pieces!"
"I'm the youngest little brother, I didn't get enough time with mom."
"She's been raising all the cousins, all the grandkids, and the dog."
"I can't talk to dad he's never home and when he's here he won't talk"
"My oldest favorite brother got married and left me in the garage"


from Near Hits, Minor Misses, and Three Dozen Half Machines: The Incomplete Home Recordings, track released August 2, 2012
Luke Warm & the Piping Hots-Guitars, Vox, and Electric Organ
