the behemoth

The bememoth moves
slowly
without a word
to the other side
of the couch

now that is progress

but so is sitting in one place
resisting running around

My Dad

My Dad has been looking a little
funny for the past couple of days
I am really not sure I am comfortable
with him looking at me that way
My husband says it is the wind that
gives a tilt to his frame
But I think it is the dusting I did
to his picture the other day is
to blame

Stream

I work my stream of consciousness
like a river flowing throught the woods
thinking of all the things
that pass me by
like seeds of the dandelion floating
in the air
the undercurrent of things
connecting here and there

Did the Fish Say Hi

As they swam by
Blinking at you
with their school of eyes

Thinking that you were a whale
But that is another tale

Wake Up Mornings

It was one of those wake up
mornings
When sleeping was not so long
And there was some wondering
if going back to sleep
would life still go
It did
And the honking and the music
was stil there and not gone
So I guess it doesn’t matter if
I sleep so long

His Eyes

His eyes
just popped out of his head
like buttons falling off
a white shirt
in a
slow motion
esoteric
roll and tumble
The audience gasped in surprise
as they popped back in
again
and then I woke up

Side Effects

I need avocados,
lots of them having a natural fat craving
Not that the avocados are having
a natural fat craving,
I am.
forgot my comma
side effect of Corona Vaccine
number 3
which is fine
or it could just be me

Maybe I will just eat mangos

One Day

One day the mother
ran away
It was a thought she had
but then she noticed
she had forgotten her socks
and had to go back
and they were all
there waiting
waiting for dinner
and we are not talking
about her socks

looking

lost my thought
had to go
looking for
it
again

looking for the rain
needed a bike ride
to find
the drops
on the window pane

had a conversation
with someone
so these thoughts
are hard to explain

Exterminator

It is the summer
and Bug Plantation
has come to town
We are going to get rid
of them
So they won’t be hanging around
We can squish them
stomp them and spray
It all be fine
Besides that they don’t
belong to your family
or mine
