SUMMER THOUGHTS – — JOURNAL ENTRY

6/18

She’s a manly girl

Don’t get me wrong

She’s no man

She has man-size strength

She can lift and tote that bale

Even drive a sixteen-wheel truck

Can’t back it up though

She needs a man for that.


 

 

6/21

The world is so full of strife

It is as troubled as the time of the Crusades

Cruelty and hatred perpetuated

In the name of God

Won’t write a poem about that

Bliss of love

Beauty of nature

Even breathe

Weightless put mighty


 

 

6/22

You can get back on schedule

But you can’t make up for what is lost

You match the count

Don’t gain the moment.

6/24

I’m back to the land of the living

There’s my son to love

Work to do

Plans to be made.

How could I have felt numb?

My apartment flooded

Moved in a day

Write up damages

Sue the landlord.


 

 

6/25

A runt

Great Pyrenees

A contradiction

In terms

A guard dog

That runs away

But keeps

The herding instinct.


 

 

6/27

Anxiety like a rat

Sneaks its way in again

Like thief that it is.
