Book Lover

If looks could kill

then here it is —

the famous poet 

after his reading

meeting my wife

who is asking him

to sign his books

that mean next to

nothing to her and

they both know it


knew it was

a strike

watching her

skirt twirl


Oh how fiery we are when angry

We carry on from room to room

Our son in school

The dog and cat fast asleep

From room to room

How fiery!

And right into bed

A.M. Report

Snow overnight —

Every bird at the feeder

Looks like a hobo
