3 Poems by Bobby Vanecko

Bapa

My grandpa was talking about his friend 
Who he says has gone crazy and is hearing voices
He says the voices are evil and tell you to kill yourself
He says that she is on meds now
But she is not the same on the pickle ball court. 

Bapa II

Watching the
World Strongman Competition
While waiting for our food
At the Italian restaurant
My grandpa is talking shit
About Catholic nuns 
He says at school they would 
Drag you places by your
Earlobes
Which is why
He has 
Long earlobes
To this day.  
He is wearing a shirt 
That says
I heart the Jesuit Pope. 

Shit

Shovel your way
Out of the shit
With a golden 
Shovel
Two coats 
Guaranteed
Unless you are 
Like me and 
Can’t seem to
Get out
Of the shit
In that case
Live in 
The shit
Embrace 
The shit
And then 
Write about it
Shit writing
About shit
Thank you
