Whipped Cream

A shadow could be
dark and flat
could be a root
A light spot
could be sand
or ledge
Watch for rocks
hidden in the grass

Two feet of smooth rock
Put the bike in low
pedal as fast as

You were trying
to have no man
And you got two!
Full moon
Somebody spilled glue
on the rug
A guy?
Whaddya think!
They rushed for
a wet sponge
Nah!  Need solvent

Didja have a dog before?
O yah
I got him off Margie Jewell
Thirteen pounds
Thirteen years
He had heart failure
I spent twenty five hundred
Cardiologist Woburn Everything
At some point you have to let go
Like people
Remember Dr Babson?
Six dollars
Yah I used to let the dogs out
Remember he had them cages
in the back
I lived there
Once Brutus was gone
I said to my wife
You gotta get another one
Jax don't let me out of his sight
You're lucky

Was that a gun?
Fish tote

How's the boy?
Is he changing?
He has learned
to scream louder
and if he's loud enough
I take him home
where he wants to be

Grandma's first rule is
That's their problem
I trust them
It doesn't matter
whether you trust them or not
It has occurred to me
that there's a whole world
out there with millions of people
who don't need my help
I'm taking my whipped cream
and going home!
So long as you leave your ball!
