Bio Note: Here in Vermont, like most folks, I'm waiting for the weather to turn, looking forward to outings to my favorite lakes. I host (since 2015) the twice-monthly podcast at www.poetryspokenhere.com as well as a monthly open mic which is on zoom and will be remaining there, COVID or not. My most recent book is Green Mountain Meditations, available at www.FootHiillsPublishing.com
It's Good To Be Around People Sometime
even with nothing to say their presence can be so soothing that before long the conversation starts to roll like unplanned sex when you take the time one thing leads to another before you know it you’re asking questions and interested in the answers the heat is on you’re with your own kind and glad to be alive
First Warm Day
rock and roll radio sing along loud, off-key the sun, the sky the woman in purple tights who cares it’s spring and we’re on the road. I thump the beat on the dashboard. Jack looks over and smiles at me, six months old from his car seat.
