Loved this! The smart-arsery that beguiles most when spoken by a learned person of notable charm.
Name dropping anuses, flashing lit cred and humble straw clutching braggart of wacky fashion rolled up in a sweet ball of strength.

I meant to change the tone because I was thinking of a friend joking about our lives having a soundtrack no matter what is going on, and how much our tastes fluctuate from slow and warm to raucous and crazy.

Born under the sun of the blazing Arizona sky
So young was my mom, I never asked why.

From window pots to garden plots
forgo the cemetery, for if you’re wise you’ll make your choice

Furever Family is what we’ve […]
Welcome you are to my life and my home.

Forsake the norms of genteel reproach and gather here on my […]
Her beauty is ethereal
gossamer smiles softly serene, yet teasing
Her eyes are moons eclipsed and dark

Bound to you, I cannot see the future.
Where am I going, where have I been-
those are questions you answer willingly,
quickly doling out responses, no hesitation in your voice.
What do you see? A body […]
Roadblocks and detours and ever winding roads
weary feet, disheveled mess
where it ends, I hope to know
cognizant boycott of roots going down
never in life was a I tied to the ground
mad nomad […]
Cement, plaster, iron and glass
man’s permanent structures sure faded fast
So glad we’re together, so glad we know
that a garden well tended will eventually grow
it may take a while, even long […]
As a child you played in the dirt
making mud pies for your daddy,
teasin’ momma with the wigglin’ worms
you were a mighty dinosaur, eating trees made of broccoli
growing like a weed
in the […]
We’ve paid our dues and joined the ranks
as gracefully as possible
we don’t steam the wrinkles from our panks
Our hygiene, not in question
corridors and hallways. make no fuss
but careful, cover […]
Attention Dearly Departed,
I believe you are aware of the consequences of your actions and even your inactions. If by chance you are somehow ignorant of the aforementioned maladies of character and have […]

It must not hush my moonbeam.
Loose my coffee from the canteen
For it must not dock on the shelf of fir!
