Beware
of warm fall days.
They draw your thoughts away
and force you to forget what lies
ahead.

Blue Bliss?
I cannot think
of anything I could write
that would begin with those two words.
Too bad.

Two words --
that's what you said.
I had time to hear those.
But I've been counting, and you've said
far more.

I don't think so. My brain would yell,
"Shut up!"

all the prisons,
formal institutions
and schools, and let the lunatics
run free.

Run free
while there’s still time.
Fallen leaves float downstream—
winter has not yet hardened the
river.

Heartache --
though we broke up
after a huge dinner,
so perhaps after all it was
heartburn.

Heartburn,
fever, headache,
nausea, and vertigo--
nothing that an Alka-Seltzer
can't cure.

Can't cure
the common cold,
or fix a flat tire, or
build a better mouse trap. Love is
useless.

You're right on point,

Now for the love of God, can we
