Comic Versus Comic
One thing you probably don’t realize
unless you watch entirely too many reruns
and have a teenaged son
into vintage comics,
Lucy Van Pelt and Lucy Ricardo
are the same girl.
Very same girl!
Think about it for a moment.
She’s the world’s greatest fuss budget,
wears Peter Pan collars/saddle shoes,
has a way around a musician,
eleven letters in her name.
Who am I talkin’ ’bout, huh? Who?
Football Puller or Pouter Fluffball?
She has bottle-red hair,
a thing for bongo players,
and if I’m gonna be completely honest

Matthew McConaughey – call me, ‘k?
We have penchant for getting into trouble
with a defiant mouth much too acerbic
for lanky pianists/drummers
Desi would spank us.
We would like it.
Schultz wouldn’t give me a voice,
come to think of it.
I would be the offscreen
wha wah wha wah wah wha wah is what Freud heard -
my breasts squashed into conical
No wonder Peppermint Patty was so damned distracted in school.
