I woke up today in the morning.

Now I’m looking out the window.

The sky is blue; cars going by.

A man on the sidewalk nearly smiles;
Rubs his hands together.
A dog across the street barks.
The man flips the dog the finger.
I laugh and sip some coffee.

Today’s Inquiry

If you don’t know how to do something,
do you still have to do it?

The doctor said I have a really fine stool.
I didn’t know he’d been to my house
to see my furniture.

Took a taxi to the city limits
then walked back here

Dead  Man  Loop

A heavy breath
Dark room
Window dirty
A broken TV
Dry flower pot
Dog skeleton in a frame
Man with a razor blade and a beer
Woman clutching a book and a Ruger
An open telephone
Deep trouble

I  Married  A  Drug  Mule

That was years ago

and the tension did not end

at bedtime

nor did the fun ever begin

Morning coffee did not help

Nothing did

She left in a Buick someone else stole

How can you say we are not related?

The globular cluster is descending
Watch out if you can
The universe is more than
we can control
so let’s enjoy the colors
it brings and hope we are
gone before it ends
but if everlasting life is
a guarantee
then who cares
Let’s dance all night
with those that love freedom
