Walking the Dog

The other day I took a brisk stroll down the neighborhood sidewalk in my grey old man's jogging suit and my favorite red sweat faded baseball hat looking down at all the cracks on the sidewalk rows and holes needing filling beneath my toes looking up at trees and crows and squirrels looking down to me cackling… Continue reading Walking the Dog

I the Simulated

I'm so not OK but that's so very OK with me Politically incorrect sure I am that's what you get not in this day and age If they want to take a big march in that pink gay parade blocking all the cars protesting my apathy I won't say nay It's all OK mainly because I am the lone gray… Continue reading I’m so not OK

Trouble is the Game

If we never had trouble why would we wish to change anything? Life would be so cool but would we get bored and restless and wander into fields of weeds? who would care if nothing changed if our lives stayed so beautiful without a care in the world? we would never miss that thing called… Continue reading Trouble is the Game
