But until then, enjoy this:

Pocket of Poems

Winter’s mist

hides the poet

eating toast

*

Double parked fish truck

Makes the world

Honk

*

Four beers

Two margaritas

He’s no fun anymore

*

“What’s it called again?”

“A burrito,

How have you never had one?”

*

Fresh cookies

“Can I have one?”

“Of course, I made them for you”

*

The student cries

Too much work

Too much work

*

They broke up

He’s crying outside

But it’s a good thing

*

Little girl waits

Fall leaves piled

Dad says, “Okay, Jump!”

*

“He pulled my hair”

“Is that true, Jonathan?”

“I di-didn’t mean to”

*

The poet waits

Looks through the trees

Then writes

*

“It’s really for me?”

“Yup, I think it’s from Gammy”

“It’s really for me?”

*

Crouched with a net

Singing for the fish to come

Dad snaps a photo of his son

*

“I don’t think you’ll like a perm”

“But Mum, I want one”

Trouble ahead

*

“This is your new brother”

“I love him”

“So do I”

*
