Like An Itch

Like an itch

That won’t go away,

Some situations


Defying reason

Until comes

A season

When you realize

The stupidity of it all.

Wild Fires

The wild fires

Made it as hot and smoky

As an old sixties bar,

Instead of sultry women

On bar stools

Gals hung out

In the shade

Trying to be cool

In ways they were

Comfortable with.

No Straws



Is it simply a reflection

Of how easily our collective intelligence

Can be duped into majoring in minor things,

Or are some of us simply stupid,

Perhaps it’s an easy way

To feel warm and fuzzy,

At least we’re doing


With all of the crazy, nasty

Things going on on the planet,

It’s all okay as we step out of our

SUVS, pickup trucks, climate controlled cars

In our rubber shoes, plastic glasses, fabricated fabrics,

It’s all okay if we can say

With a commanding voice,

No straws.
