dear al jazeera…

so
let’s get this shit
straight
the lump
in
the white house
is
not
the
united states
he’s
a
minority
racist
representative
of
trailer trash
most
folks
in
this country
voted
against him
they
are
america
he
is a wanna be
dictator
who
should be
in
jail
instead
he’s out
on
political bail
but
with any luck
at all
he’ll soon
be
where he
belongs
sincerely
yours
the
united states

 

trade tariffs and other absurdities…

spring #13…

carol
was indeed
a gentle soul
by example
one spring
when
her neighbor’s exterminators
noted
tree rats
in her palm trees
she elected
to leave
them alone
as they
were
one
of god’s
creatures
so
you can imagine
the neighbor’s surprise
to see
her
waving her arms
and
whistling
at
a defiant rabbit
who had
reduced
her garden
to
mulch
but
not nearly
as
surprised
as
the rabbit
when
the coyote pup
got
his first kill

 

spring #12…

his timing
and
vision
of the future
was always
somewhat
questionable
so
last winter
when
he ordered
pineapple lily seeds
from
south africa
based
upon
physical appearance
and
its lovely name
few of us
were surprised
when
he darted
from his home
one spring morning
gasping
for air
the pineapple lilies
bloomed
early
in
his basement greenhouse
resulting
in a relationship
much like
his former marriage
