Russell Leaf #4

from by The Reflectors



no one knows Russell Leaf because Russell leaves
the scenes of all his accidental overdoses
on all the strangers in his life
he’s never haunted by

Russell Leaf liked to dance with the stranger
things on his mind never kept him
from seeking out his next chance to fall in love

Russell Leaf knew compassion only keeps you down
loading you with baggage
claims against a next chance to fall in love

Russell Leaf believed there was no higher power
never went to church on Sunday
school never mattered he’s a rich man now

Russell Leaf just lives happily down Recent Memory Lane
the one place that you get more
than one first-time to fall in love

who wouldn’t want to be …. Russell Leaf?
