I’m happy to say I have more readers now then when I started this blog.  Therefore, I shall occasionally repost from earlier musings that didn’t get much attention.  This is one of my favorites I’ve written.

Small World

She typed furiously
On her laptop,
And homely.
Her tan loafers
Firmly planted
On the carpet
She never had sex.
She captivated me
I wondered what she
Was writing
So hard,
And thought
She was a poet too,
And if so,
Would she rather dine
With Rumi,
Or Bukowski,
Or maybe Plath?
She paused for a moment
Holding her bangs
Between her fingers,
And I thought Plath.
Definitely Plath.

The Chickasaw Plum
