BASKETS & BLANKETS

Note: This is my mother. The last line made me think the photo suitable. I am recovering from a difficult cold subdued by a bottle of Benylin, but it ain’t over yet  baby blue.  I came to understand that my mother’s second “n” on Susann was conjured in the 60s, though a Susan with one

LUFTIGEN

I didn’t expect the noise to come with spring’s open windows. Winter was such a quiet affair going door to door. Tight that was the word, air that enters called a draft.

WISH

For now, this poem I wrote today stays here on my website. I’ve no interest in debate, or signalling virtue, though I may change my mind.
