WHAT ARE YOU SMILING AT? 12-24-16

fresh ginger

skype

the pie dish

and, if you forgive un-buddhist distinctions

there are more of us than them

bomeliads

senior transit passes

rain did I mention that

(the roof doesn’t leak)

and a bonus: I found the hole

the mice got in

yes there are

more of us

dirt, moist loamy dirt that

the rain has made tender

we could dig a hole and lie down in it

and pull

the maple leaves over us like a thousand

hankies in search of a thousand sorrows

cry for me your private argentina

or not

there are more of us than them

  1. Yes, there are. And yes, we can
    always write
    some damn good poems.

  2. ❤ ..permission to share widely? wouldn't unless ok with you of course. (Remember all those confusing Saturday morning copyright discussions???)
    Great poem.
