54 – M.R.

little retarded boy
round face
blue tongue
in, out, a slurring mouth…
Wayne
“W W W W A A A A YYYYNNNNEEEE”
yes
“YYYYYEEEEEAAAAAAA”
Smile little retarded boy
Surprise us that you can even be.
Embarrass us to be with us,
Others thinking you are part of us,
like us
only simpler.

See signs of frustration
scrawled on bathroom walls:

THE SMART ONES
ARE THE ‘TARDS
