Poetry Marathon, 2016

The journey of a thousand miles

begins with one step

putting on shoes

putting on socks

getting out of bed

sitting at keyboard

coffee at hand

sans shoes, socks, shirt

Expedia, Trivago cannot get me there

not making reservations

staying the night after the day

more coffee

still no socks, shoes

traveling light

going so very, very far.
