STRANGER THINGS…

Stranger outcomes happen,

When opportunity’s tapping,

Wanting in

And you begin

Writing ideas you’re trapping!

He’s written ’bout Christ and trains–

Weather seems worth one’s pains….

Fashion poems are new

As something to do,

And the challenge takes working brains!

I’d say it is channeling energy,

Most of which has left me….

Shapes and sizes

And stylish surmises,

Still need a bard’s entrée.

“An eye for the women.” one said,

Focusing on their clothes instead..

“Clothes make the man”

And women, and can

Leave little more to be said!

YET–a poet describes,

Details that emanate vibes…

Along a track

That likes feedback,

Both positive and wise!

LIQUID SATISFACTION

Strolling down the long hall.

For five espressos, that’s all…

Creamer perhaps

Preventing naps,

It hurts–that office chair fall!

Chocolate espresso looked weak,

No color of which to speak…

The normal stuff

Was dark brown enough,

To bring blushes to the cheek.

Walking back down the hall,

Carefully didn’t spill at all…

There’s medical need

For caffeine indeed,

That coffee machine doth call!

–Jonathan Caswell

A LONG WALK’S REWARD

At work there’s an extra-long hallway,

Some walk it several times a day…

For coffee I go

The whole way though,

My cane helping all the way!

Espresso from the machine is weak,

Drink a “turbo shot”* I’ll hardly speak…

Machine espressos pour

At least four,

Any more, I’d be up for a week!

Two turbos* in coffee iced,

At  the drive-through are so nice…

“Dunkin Donuts” coffee

Is stronger (whoo-wee!),

“Turbo” taste is strong over ice!

Still long walks do me good,

Multiple trips when I could…

One evening, oh my!

The machine was dry,

But for hot chocolate, which would!

–Jonathan Caswell

*Turbo shots are a particular coffee additive available at DUNKIN DONUT shops.

WANTED…CLOSE COMMUNICATING!

WANTED CLOSE COMMUNICATING!

The problem was both had hurts,

Committed by trousers and skirts…

Commitment to trust

Gathered rust,

Both thought the other curt.

Walls and grudges build

Despite commitments to yield…

Many a marriage

Is disparaged,

By combat in the field.

Obvious one doesn’t understand,

The other’s health demands…

One bends over,

The other takes over

And pushes one into badlands.

The verbose one wonders why

The silent one won’t try

to open

As they’re hoping,

To fill them in bye-and-bye.

The silent one’s thoughts run sarcastic,

The other one listens to drastic…

And half the time

Is not so inclined,

They both fall into that basket!
