Vietnam War Hell and the Wells Fargo Bank Teller

 

Twenty years ago when I moved to California

I went to Wells Fargo to open a bank account

The teller was young, beautiful, Vietnamese

 

My first thought was

“You know, I might have fucked your mama”

 

My second thought was

“You know, I might have killed your mama”

 

I took my receipt

Went outside

And threw up on the sidewalk

 

And you wonder why I have trouble sleeping?

You wonder why I broke the lamp and punched a hole in the wall?

You wonder why road rage makes me feel so good?

 

My body came back but not my mind

And I will always be ten thousand miles away
