Lazy drunkard

fighting cultists

across bad dialogue

and flimsy plot.

Three shadows

adding a theme song,

asking the question

“Is that a stupid name?”

Ham still laughs

every time name

is said, conjuring

basement viewing

and denim jackets,

bad hair, nothing

resembling me,

but so fun to say,

to mold a name

to an identity,

random shortenings,

additions, Rowsimicat,

the Rowisimcar,

Roswell shouted

across campus,

baffling strangers,

friends parents

who still know me

by my claimed
