Dress Code for the Wedding

Many many people
people asking
what to wear

June in Florida
will be hot
That being said

I am hot
I am wearing
wearing formal

I am wedding
wedding Mark
minus Mark

I would think
I would
I wed

Please no jeans
no shorts
no holes

no sleeveless shirts
no flip-flops

Rob’s Summer, According to Facebook

Karma ate twice.
Down a hundred pounds.

I usually never do,
and for me that takes a lot.

Go away somewhere
watch the towers fall.

One can count
true friends – few friends.

One can count on medicine
a taste of agent orange.
