not chasing ghosts

or mosquitoes

hardly worth recalling those remains

lost in the lines around my eyes

an optimistic thursday

toddles along

no need to pat me on the head

my wobble fairly strong

falling down , though a possibility

a skinned knee

feels good - sometimes

Shhh--don't tell 'im that or he'll go hightailing it to the hills and we'll never see him post here again. He's aiming for fluffy bunnies, 'member? Little Rabbit Foo Foo and all that. Tell him that his writing is delightfully light and refreshingly superficial--that'll work! Can't be blowing the man's cover, now can we? Just wouldn't be right. TeHe

when i was in kindergarten, at monte vista elementary in inner city L.A., i skinned my knee like a sliced apple. blood like seeds. i can still see the image clearly in my head, forty years later. thanks for the memory, dude.
