Wattle & Snood

Sky blue-pink
He said it was the color
Of sunset when the clouds were breaking
Saucy material eyes take off
& again the threatening am guilty
Figuring he was blind or an innocent
Wouldn't the eyes deceive?

Tom slips on corn & soy
Bean meal too heavy for flight
But the wild one
55 -dame with the third eye- m.p.h.
Hood behind broad breasted nightly whitey
Isn't that her, her Holland name
Wouldn't you know.

glowing fish
The chef takes a break, it's going well -exhale,
"best stuffing on this earth" "exquisite" "great"
so I'm relaxing... The holidays should be fun,
I hope you find it satisfying, if not come on
over to my virtual HOUSE!! Seriously Thanks
to all you poetry bloggers w/ big hearts. Love,

add in: parsley, fennel seed, pepper, thyme, nutmeg...
& light sprinkle of garlic powder
(useful information to anyone?
no, but someday for my girls.)
gorgeous sunny day, a quick run to Target
Stuffing UPDATE :: Basil oil, Chili powder,
the usual celery, onion, carrots, no oysters
mushrooms go in the bird, no mushrooms
out of the bird, in the oven noon tomorrow

time to turn up the muzak ---------> Jamaica.
...while cleaning out Julie's closet
she says: "Don't take that away,
it's my credit card" - actually it was
her Student Progress Report.

...while snacking on red Pepperidge
Farm Goldfish I asked Julie: "What do
red goldfish taste like?" & she replied,
"goldfish taste like gold."
The two foods that are fun to make, that have the 'unusual' qualities
of texture and taste are ()()()() the Cranberries {sauce} and ()()()()
the Stuffing ()()()() Since I couldn't find the cinnamon sticks, I added
allspice to the cranberries, then found the cinnamon sticks and
added a small one, some grapefruit juice, & some brown sugar ()()()()
Next ()()()() mixing the bread crumbs....

this poem is not about what you think it's about

just the thought
of sometimes
is too much

tks Malcolm!
Ain't nobody cryin'.... I'll take you there.
who wrote that song?
Tim Yu takes an early vacation - yea, too freezing already -
I have to wait till end of March, Arizona!- middlewest cold.
Arvo Part's Alina so beautiful.
I will analyze the actions and
appetites of men as if it were a question of
lines, of planes, and of solids.


reading Joyce Carol Oates's latest:
I'll Take You There

The book received poor reviews, but I like/trust her style of
writing; intelligent, honest. The story isn't very interesting,
e.g. -The danger of falling in love, in winter- however
good enough to say a worthwhile read.

Trying to post right now with the roto-plumber here
making a @# )(*&*&^*&% @#@# loud clanging
calamity sound ... just reading that the infamous
"Poetry Slam" began in Chitown "Poetry in Commotion"
also that the Poet Laureate makes a $30,000 salary
to do what again?

The last few days have felt very hectic, good hectic as I am preparing
for the holidays. We drove downtown yesterday (I was a passenger!)
to see the girls' grandfather who was in town for a fancy wedding.
I don't think the two little ones have seen opulence to such extreme
before: The Four Seasons' impeccable lobby, then up to the 41st
floor, entering JB's 'modest' hotel suite and staring out at the mag-
nificent city. I loved living in New York for the energy but never
desired to stay because of the filth. Chicago is clean! We talked
to JB for an hour or so, an amazing person, then rode down the
lavish elevator - the girls were starving. We discovered a bowl of
miniature chocolate chip cookies sitting on a table with a shiny silver
urn of hot chocolate - mini marshmallows and chocolate chip condi-
ments to garnish. It was the best we've tasted.

The "Festival of Lights" was about to begin on Michigan Avenue
though we decided to head North and missed the traditional
holiday reinstatement - I get excited seeing 1000s of tiny lights.

to everyone!
