Just a Lucky Fruit Basket (day 21)

A bliss of serene beauty
Floats on through the fruit isle
Making her way past
Mangoes, apples, and nectarines
Stopping to selectively select
One lucky banana
To grace her green basket
Expertly balanced
With succulent delicacies

Ahoy! Not the chicken breasts!
No, they are much too expensive
There’s a much better deal
On the value priced pork pack
It’s a little bit much, I know
For one tiny girl to consume
So I will not advise you
You’re choice, I’m sure, will bake well
With those sweet potatoes you’ve got

I can’t help but notice
You’ve chosen the bulk food section
It’s my favorite part here
Of this massive grocer
The selection is weak
But still, enough to excite
Although your dried cranberries
Make me wonder about you
I’d much prefer the chocolate covered peanuts myself

I agree with you totally
Balsamic vinegar is essential
For most any dish made
For that right bit of flavor
I tend to try it
When my food feels dry
Maybe a bad habit
For me to carry on
But I like that you like it, it’s made my day

Oh Wait (day 20)

Anxiously awaiting
With feeble breath
Nervously busying
Anxiously waiting

To late, it’s happened
It’s come and gone!
It’s been here and went
Oh dear, to late

But wait! Just maybe
Just maybe that beep
Wasn’t the beep I missed
Just maybe it failed

Oh look, oh dear
It’s been far to long
I think I cannot dare
Oh dear, oh my.

At First (day 19)

Lay awake, in bed, in desires unknown
Thinking about all the love you’d have
Nonsense you laugh, roll over again
Struggling to dig yourself in
Succeeding at rumpling all of your sin
Between your legs in folded disarray

Crying, the notes of anger reach your ears
Somebodies playing games with the time of day
Somebodies turned on the lights of this morning
Scream my daily sins, scream my cover at night
albatross, albatross, albatross rock
albatross, albatross, albatross rock

Step move floor get start go.
Creek lurch groan yawn
And reach for the sky in an outstretched embrace
And breathe in and out and in and out
To know, believe, dream, excite
To love, to keep, to be is indeed

Tit For Tat (day 16)

I’ve been robbed, so then shall I rob
I’ve been choked, so then shall I choke
I’ve been caressed, so then shall I caress
I’ve been guided, so then shall I guide

I’ve been birthed, so then shall I birth
I’ve been cut, so then shall I cut
I’ve been rung, so then shall I ring
I’ve been called, so then shall I call

I’ve been slapped, so then shall I slap
I’ve been raped, so then shall I rape
I’ve been blessed, so then shall I bless
I’ve been reminded, so then shall I remind

I’ve been kissed, so then shall I kiss
I’ve been poisoned, so then shall I poison
I’ve been tickled, so then shall I tickle
I’ve been murdered, so then shall I murder?

Burn the Evidence (day 15)

Loosely I gloss over dusty pages laid to waste in the molding sun
Counteract, balance, organize, destroy
Cherishing all the curves that come with the letters
Anarchy among the lines portraying organization in ruins
Shred my evidence that leaves its beauty mark
Among the leafs of forgotten memoirs
Along the memories of forgotten penmen

A Lonely Visit (day 14)

Wandering as I hop from patch to patch
I find the grass here, I find the grass there
To me it makes more sense to hop
Than stroll along lazily like a silly ol’ dog

A stump I’ve found, but continue on past
Only the lushest of bushes will please
A mushroom, a dandelion, I’ll stop and I’ll smell
But it’s those carrots of which I truly delight!

Sniff and a nibble, hop and I’ll stop
Instinct it is, I’ll carry on forth
Dancing around with my bum in the air
A rabbit I is, without any ol’ care

A Share (day 13)

I share with you to share, I dare
To me a share I want with you
A share to share because I care
We share this chair, we share a cure
We share this stare as deep as shag
Under it all I pose the question
Dear oh dear what shall I wear?

Slowly, Please Not Fast (day 12)

Slowly, baby. Please don’t make it go so fast
I’m enjoying the cool breeze roll through my sleeve
I like the sun staying there in the sky
Don’t hold up that light today, it’s a slow ride home

Please, baby. Don’t you make my eyes lonely
Make the road never mourn me
I want to feel it roll all night
Thunder, wheels, lights, and wipers

Keep your eyes on the road baby!
