After Breakfast

Block all noises,
X-Ray all parts of myself,
Make sure I'm well,
No coughing, no sneezing, no external stress.
.
Now remove unwanted emails,
Wash my hands,
Vacuum the carpet,
cut my finger nails,
then wave my magical thinking wands.
.
Fall in love with someone else's thoughts,
Play with them
until you invent something new---
same rules, different theme.
.
Cheese and Ham,
Sausage and Eggs,
Sam I am,
A bookworm from Cheggs.

the odd to cooper field badge

it was the autumn of 97
and I agree that elegance
was packages of rice noodles at
Prince Henry's kitchen table,
or dandling of a long braided hairdo
on Princess Elsa's back,
the silver cooper badge gleamed
like the ears of corns at a cornfield,
still, valid,
posting in one enchanted motion
as I exam its silky surface,
my heart bursts,
my hair stands,
black tufts cascading,
flame of unknown force tumbling down,
a broken heart,
a wounded reminder....
