POW WOW

 

The remodeling job has quieted down

And I finally found some music

I can stand

This has been an

Interesting day

Rich with conversation

And good company

 

ItÕs funny how

As I get older

I really value

These forays

Into intellectual

Patter and thought

 

ItÕs probably as

Close as IÕll ever

Get to an academic

Setting without

Going to college

 

I like to talk

 

But not just talk

I like to opine

To give my view

 

I donÕt do it a lot

Not that many opportunities

Too many afraid of

Actual discourse

Discussion

 

Fear of ideas

Fear of disagreement

Fear of new perspectives

 

Not the stage I thought

IÕd be living at

By now

 

So give me your linguistics baby

Go ahead

Speak your mind

 

Why itÕs almost as good as sex

 

 

IÕM TOO OLD FOR THAT SHIT ANYWAY

 

Met a lady bug today

DidnÕt recognize her

Turns out she knew me

Back when I could

Still get it up for

A well-tuned skirt

I thought we hit it off

But IÕm probably wrong

IÕve been hoping to make

A connection for a long

Time but I may have

Waited too long

 

LetÕs just be friends

 

It doesnÕt sound so bad now

 

 

 

DAY DREAMING FOR MO

 

ÒSee, heÕs jealous of you

YouÕve still got your mojo!Ó

 

Oh if it were only true

I got my JO

But not the MO

But itÕs ok

For now

Things

Have

Been

Going

My way

For a while

And who knows

There might be some MO

Coming for me

 

ItÕs been a dry season
