What's in a name
Artist friend
Colleague
Means
By the inn of the beekeeper
In some
Eastern European
Language
For short
I called him
Beekeeper
Ever droll
He never responded
To such familiarity
Or frivolity
For that matter
Contrarian
Zigged
Where others zagged
An avatar
As it were
Clipped oracles
Doled niggardly
With a crisp
Quip
Homey twists
Ersatz Nostradamus
Beating the system
To a pulp
Frugal traveler
Hostels
Off to Italy
When school let out
After which
With Mary in Maine
Vacationland
We visited
Local haunts
On a beached dock
Next to the
Lobster cove
Granite bridge
Inventive grid
Three of them
Frozen in time
Sitting there
Zen monks
Wearing shorts
Astrid in
Double vision
Of abandon
Thrilled to
Be by
The sea
She and we
Waxed on the wane
