She comes running as soon as I walk out my door.
I sit down in my chair and she is demanding pets.
Meanwhile my two cats sit watching me
as the neighbour’s feline has her way.
Still, I know they love me and they know I love them.
Just somedays when coffee in hand
the morning comes and I sit outside
All I want is to enjoy this life.
Sorry, I thought it was just gas
blowing out of your nose.
Do you ever have a good time?
I’ll never be left alone in a room with you.
I think you mean Assertive
since you obviously can’t handle
a woman smarter than you.
A dairy product
that makes the black water

Pictures are great.
They give a snapshot
into a moment in time.
Our eyes see what happened
and we enjoy the delights of that moment.
Only problem is
looking at that gorgeous plate of food
still does not feed our stomach.
It does not tantalize our taste buds
but it is a delight on our eyes.
So feed your soul with your pictures of food
and hopefully someday
somebody will recreate the dish properly.
And pour into the world.
Turn that frown upside down.
It takes less muscles to smile.
Stop using cliches
And be done with the horror
When your emotions run amok.

Make your brain happy
So you can be gentler to yourself.

Some of us

I want a normal life
but everything I take belies that.
Ownership is ninth/tenths of the law.
Yet whose law is it?
Is it right to keep something
just because you found it?
Stealing happens when you take something
that is not yours.
So what happens when you steal something
and then change the laws about it.
Can changing the laws really justify your actions?
I guess a lawyer might know.
Though their answer will depend on what laws they are defending.
Outside it falls.
Inside the skin is filthy.
Water is essential.
Love the liquid that loves you.
Looking behind me
Never seeing perfection
We want to be better.
Yet ideals are not broken
As growth becomes our mantra.
