My Day Was Going Fine

My day was going fine
Until I got toothpaste in my eye
The kind for Sensitive People
with that Fresh Minty Taste
Of course the precluding aura that
usually appears to warn me and ward
off these occasional lapses in judgement was either on vacation
or I was in denial of the impeding event.
It generally says “don’t rush, this is stupid”
or other equally enlightening words.
Which would apply if I was seeking to include my eyeballs in
in the vicinity of my teeth.
Perhaps next time I will not put two activities together
like rubbing my left eyeball while I am brushing my teeth.

You were mumbling
Something under your brain
You know I can hear you
with my mumbling hearing brain
it scans on a rapid rate
word and thought patterns
filtering out all the important stuff
including all the stuff that doesn’t matter.

Brain mumblers are the clicking tumblers
that process more information their
fastly moving brains can load
Potentially there are possible leakings, oozings
on a brain train just waiting to explode.

Brain mumbling, fuzzy words, leaking information,
leaky, fuzzy, garbled information gap

If this is communication I think I will bend over, remove my shoes, lie down
and take a nap.

Red gloves
Crispy creme donuts
Black gloves
“Going to school”
“My coat? No “hoodies” allowed.”
Basketball meets black gloves.
Smiling as he passes by

Blue door
Curtains drawn
Was I
standing listening to
a violin?
Wanting to knock
to be let in
But not to pass and not listen
was why I was standing there
in the cold
outside the

I am leaving you
because of your knees
they should have been longer
and you would have been taller
if you know what I mean
I am leaving you because of your eyes
they should have blue or maybe grey
or brown with flecks of green if they
make them that way
I am leaving you because of your nose
it snores loud at night enough to curl my toes
And that too
I am leaving you because of your toes
if I didn’t know better and think that
it could make anything that isn’t already
terminally worse a little plastic surgery
a nick and tuck here and there couldn’t
hurt. But I have said it already
And it could be worse.
I am really leaving you because of your

Magical, twinkling ,whimsical
Smile that warms up my heart
Makes me want to squeeze him forever
And forget about all his other crazy parts

The Postman

The postman stopped as
he put the letters in the doors
of the houses every day of the city with
the skyline that you can see as you look
beyond the trees.

“Is there something you want to ask me?”

I looked up at him after bending down
to pick up the mitten I had dropped on the street

” Do you watch the clouds  as they
drift in the wind in the night where you can
see them in the trees in the city with
the skyline?”

I figured he would understand if I said something,
Something to think about as he put letters in the
doors of the houses everyday in the city with the

The postman stopped and said with a smile,
like he was trying to understand, “You are so funny.”

Yes, I know, maybe so.


Maybe he will stop and  look up when he goes home,
and see the clouds passing over the rooftops, through the trees
of the city with the skyline, at night.

Maybe so.

last night

last night i was listening for
a sound to hold onto and take me down to
a sonorous sound i could wrap my thoughts
onto and keep
a sound of rain or wind blowing and tapping on my
window pane
the constant rush of cars going by or the distant sound of
the train
i even tried to listen for sound in the silence as hard as I could
maybe too hard,
but i still thought i would try

On An As Needed Basis

Synapses crackling in the morning

One eye open then the next
I don’t like to use my brain too
Afraid it might break
I am older and I don’t need
my brain to be on all the time
Just on an as needed basis
seems to be just fine
but generally speaking I can get
along better than most
with one one brain tied behind
my back
there are some days
it is preferable to just coast

but then again being a stranger in a
strange land gives us a clue who we really are.

Just as a Personal Aside

If one decides if is necessary to run away from
It is not necessary to bring one’s home
with them
at least if you are serious
you really don’t want or wouldn’t want too.

Unless of course there are cream cheese and bagels
