Life as a weekend

Charing Cross Bridge by Andre Derain ( 1906 )


I read summary
of life this weekend
One part rainy.One
Part sunny weekend

One part rainy weekend.
Tornado watch. Traffic
Jam on highway. Favorite black
And white stripe shoes
Soaking wet. Brown
Umbrella gone to pieces
On a storm in a rush by
The side road. Shelter under cafe
Canopy. Order of tomato
Basil soup with waffle for one. Sweet
Temptation vanilla on hot French
Chocolate Cake. Better than the best I
Ever thought any human
Could ever make. One became
Two. He said wait right there
I will join you too. Spinach dip with pita
Chips. Funny how before the rain we
Never stopped by here.
Birds on red wall. Blue fishes
Circle on another. African
lady's portrait looks on
from the corner. Funny
How Before the rain we
Never stopped by here. Rain
Like cats and dogs. Run home under
the big daddy flower umbrella
I had kept in his car. Swivel chair, movie,
orange and comforter. Sleep listening
To sweet dreams are
Made of these.

I read summary
of life this weekend
One part rainy .One
Part sunny weekend

One part sunny weekend.
Little girl in orange pants
Skating with friend. Boys playing
Jump and catch. Shredding
brown bag full of one year
Worth of paper trash. Tomato curry
with Tofu and rice. Grass
by balcony shining
like a rhinestone
mining site. Short Short distance
Call to Maria who has been
Making guest appearance
in my dreams. Long long
distance call to mother
Hen.Writing the story
Of light. Lord grant
Me that ten thousand
Dollar grant. Grant
Me the courage just
In case you say : Sorry my
Child I simply can't. Cuckoo song
Hints get paper and pen. Making
Plans. Some more plans for
Making more plans.
