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!

OUR FORMER DETECTIVE

OUR FORMER DETECTIVE

A woman came in to look

for her specially-marked book…

She’d put it down

Somewhere around,

By somebody else was it took?

In court offices she was known

As “detective”, reputation grown

Over time

‘Csuae she would find

Anything with enough time sown.

I hope her confession is true,

Because books around here have two…

Legs and walk

Off in the dark,

Whether marked…or new!

(I didn’t do it—-hones—not this time!)

FREE TABLE

FREE TABLE

There is a table in the Common Room

That used to be called “FREE”…

anything left there disappeared

If any had want or need.

Once i left an article there,

In a wink it was nearly gone….

My boss had to rescue it from the one

Who thought it could be his to own!

Technically–it’s no longer free—

but people remember their ways…

More than remember new-fangled rules

Don’t leave it there in malaise.
