COTTON/ROBINS ARE ALWAYS EVERYWHERE

for Robin Williams & my dads

Goodbye Professor Keating: Goodbye Mork:

Goodbye Armand & Goodbye Alan Parrish &

Goodbye all the funny voices, ever.

And fuck you, Patch Adams.

Goodnight pro bono therapist of the poor kid:

Goodnight Genie in a poor kid’s lamp:

Goodnight Vietnam & fuck you, J Evans Pritchard & Neil’s Dad!

Neil should be an actor if he wants! Art is LOVE!)

SO SWEET HEAVENLY CREATIVE DREAMS,

ALL THE SWEETEST DREAMS THERE ARE to Mrs. Doubtfire:

AND the Dad:

Sweet dreams to good and bad

dads everywhere:

Goodnight Teddy Roosevelt:

Goodnight Peter Pan, the grown up

version of everybody:

Goodnight to being

a grown up.

Goodbye cocaine!

Goodbye mental illness!

Goodbye laughing all the time

to keep from crying &

Goodbye talk shows & ass-holes & profit margins!

We’ll all still run into you on TV all the time

but now it’ll be like families in small

towns, saying goodbye every time

like it’s the last time.

He’s got to take off his happy face

and his sad face

so he can let them both go.

So say goodnight to the one man

show & the man: he can’t stay

awake with you all night he’s only

got tonight to turn his frowns upside-down.
