Tony leaves for Mexico tomorrow

    armed with a one way ticket

    and social security

    The man living on the back bay boat

    Sails off to Cuba

    (just as soon as a Wells Fargo opens

    in Havana),

    I travel through the maze

    of this Florida Island

    Streets ripped up and machines

    Loud and towering

    Motor Vehicles at a standstill

    in comedic one lanes

    Passing them by

    Leaving them with even more dust,

    I change gears and head for the North End

    Happy to be on my Trek.
