Stair Well

All these young cones seem to talk about is getting their “steps” in.

Well, I’m too old to count my movements.

I’ll just stay down here, thank you very much.

I am out of step with the latest trends.

I am Cone Alone.


No change, of heart

I was planning on calling you after so long.

I was planning on saying I’m sorry.

I was planning on telling you it was all my fault.

I was planning on crying, for once.

But I was out of quarters.

I am Cone Alone.


Road rues

“Come out west,” they said. That’s where the action is. “We’ve got plenty of jobs out here,” they promised.

Well, I ain’t seen shit.

I can’t believe I left the city for this.

I am feeling deserted.

I am Cone Alone.


Baffling scaffold

Who knew this would be so heavy?


I mean, is it even really safe for me to be holding this by myself?

Hey buddy. Hey. Hey!


I guess I can’t really ever trust anyone to help. I can only rely on myself.


I am not even getting overtime.

I am Cone Alone.
