The Old Place in Alsip

We had the ultimate bachelor pad
in Alsip
for a couple years.

The refrigerator was just
a large appliance
that stored condiments.

I had six months of laundry
on the floor of my room.

Women came and went
that nobody else knew about.

There was a white substance
we affectionately called
‘AIDS’
on the shower curtain.

Times you can look at and smile
in retrospect,
after women come
and rescue you from yourself.
