Are when when you have an insight
and um you can’t remember it because of
short term memory issues secondary to refractory brain function
(that means that I was going in one direction and got “defracted”)
Also another possibility is that my brain and my phone are
being run by monkeys
But then I remind myself
who I am and consider that it might be
quite ridiculous that anyone would want to carry about
those thoughts that I carrying around in my brain for any great
length of time or even would consider letting me get even close to their brain
Or even make the mistake of writing them on a Post um note
I think the atomic atoms of darkness
must be different
In the places were there is more sun
they are pink orange and gold
In colder climates they are blues purples blacks and grays
Pausing here and reeling these fishy fish tales back in
Things of this magnitude are better left to others
I think I will quietly ( that means unobtrusively as possible)
use a real time map and go
do something unimportant
like getting overcoming my fear of getting lost
and leave this
for an artist.
(Besides when I say stuff like this it just gets me in trouble)
She is my friend for ever and a day
was emboldened and went rock climbing
I was “oh dear, it is dangerous ,afraid of heights.
I told her to be careful
She told me that she would
“It is child’s play on the kiddie climb,
don’t worry all is good”
I know I shouldn’t worry
but I need my friend to
stay on the grid not so many feet
off the ground
Who is going to save me psychologically
if she is not around.
Besides who would I get to read my poems
if she was Bouldered (another way of saying
being dropped on or off a huge rock) and had
no way out.
An friendly, sympathetic editor
in a time of droughts, hurricanes and other potential disasters
Clearly irreplaceable without a doubt.
Just being Merely Human
unable to fly
but when asked
as I walked down the stairs,
“what are you doing?”
“Well, because I am Merely Human
and cannot fly, I am walking down the stairs.”
Was my reply.
“Merely being there gives me the opportunity
And that is just as it is,” said I.
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.
Crispy creme donuts
“Going to school”
“My coat? No “hoodies” allowed.”
Basketball meets black gloves.
Smiling as he passes by
standing listening to
Wanting to knock
to be let in
But not to pass and not listen
was why I was standing there
in the cold
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
