“The poet

doesn’t invent.

He listens. ”


~ Jean Cocteau







written, spoken

reflections of life

painting an imperfect picture





lightening and thunder

accompanying springs rain

dramatic nature




they listened to the old man’s tale

knowing that there were embellishments

the pause, the  dramatic inhale

entertainment for the residents


they used to get up and go to work for a living

careers they called them, it paid the bills

one day a year they would celebrate thanksgiving

now it’s talk regarding the changing of the wills


most are enjoying their life’s longevity

the happiest enjoy doting on the next generation

few ponder the length of eternity

fewer yet the theory of creation


day to day they enjoy this existence

following the path of least resistance.



ME and the Boss
