Be still,
my heart! He took
my hand (big deal!) and asked
me out. So what? It's not like I'll
say yes.

I hear the words come out my mouth
"why not?"

veal, beef, bovines, cows, cattle, calves…

black boots press hard against the worn

bizarre
or sometimes weird,
as well as amusing,
bordering on the fantastic:
quite odd.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)

the answer depends on how well

Attempt
To climb atop
An obstacle calls for
Plenty of effort, akin to
Working.

Working
In an office
Sitting day after day
Can be deleterious to
Your health.

Your health
Is the only
Thing that you truly own
After illness, good health feels like
Flying

Flying
Up in the sky
Is exhilarating
Unless, of course, one of the wings
Falls off.

Falls off,
from the flag pole,
spreading both of his arms,
noticing too late it was not
a dream.

A dream
is a sequence
of loosely connected
scenes, in which the narrative makes
no sense.

The events they’d
Attended, none were so

Skipping

has a certain flavour.
It's the only reason I miss

High school,

1974,
taught me some facts I remember
vaguely.

And consumed many skeins
Until it wrapped thrice around her.

But how can she
Take down her pants in case
She hears the loud call of nature?

Tell me
The name you hear
When the wind silently
Whispers to you as the sun sets.
Listen.
