PSA by Dominic Gualco

Listen to a reading of “PSA” by Dominic Gualco.

Every forty-two seconds a person in the United States purchases a Ford. Last night I highlighted the line “i am paralyzed by the distinct sensation of nothing in particular” and pressed delete.

Do you know where I can get a newspaper around here?

Today I am looking for a newspaper and a sandwich. I will walk somewhere to buy these things.

I might end up at lying in the beach sand or playing the banjo in the mall parking lot. Not for tips, just because I do that sometimes when I am wearing sunglasses.

If you need me, send me an email.

      Here is a little diddy…

      GUALCO
      Dominic, of the Sacramento Gualco’s
      Lawyers and such and so forth Ahhyep.
      I am of the GIACOMO COLUMBO GUALCO’S
      and am my own KIND.
      I am inner alchemy with a dash of calamity
      I am drawing the lines
      to ignite
      the Global PYRE
      I can
      in sight
      a World Riot
      and then keep
      calm
      with cadence
      on my djembe
      DRUM..
      err…
      I hope you
      skipped the print
      had an EPIC sammy
      wore your shades
      in the sand
      at night
      on the beach
      and that your tips
      DAMN NEAR SPLIT
      on your
      B.A.N.J.O
      I hope you
      ripped open
      a whole new paradigm
      and a firefly
      slipped between
      if ya know what
      I mean
      and that
      behind your shades
      your eyes
      smiled
      THE END
