Rat Smell

how does a rat smell

twitch of the nose

whiskers along the rafters

it knows you are there

as it hurries past

often on its guard

it is the cat

that smells

a rat

Rat Smell

One Time

one time

I kissed my mother’s corpse

it was very cold

one time 

swinging a golf club

I hit a girl on the head

one time

I got too close to an alligator

won’t do that again

one time

I found my father’s gun

but never touched it

one time

I took a boat to France

it went very fast

one time

I married a handsome man

he makes me laugh

City of Rocks New Mexico

structures by nature

mighty stones too grand

for my camera lens

a must see memory

 

Campsites tucked among

these giants

formed of volcanic action

chiseled by wind and water

megaliths on the desert floor

 

We pitched our tent on rock

made 35 million years ago

a mere baby that awoke

in this galactic year

where now we sleep

Road Trip #1

Forgotten Coast Highway

along the panhandle of Florida

don’t forget to walk the shores

beach after beach after beach

you need more than a day

 

This time we procrastinate

no need to hurry

almost blown away at St Joe

mark your entrance

so you can find your way back

 

St Andrew St George

Henderson Beach State Park

just to name a few

the road winds past

not forgotten
