I couldn't find room for these in my everyday blog, so here it is. I don't like to place a date on these, so they can be anything from 10 years old to last week's. Enjoy, roll your eyes, whatever your favorite reaction is, do it with a cup of tea!

You find the ordinary in the extraordinary,
sitting like a sort of Buddha on a lumpy couch, harvesting ugliness
while pretending you are fascinating. I haven’t traveled much,
but I hear there are far-off lands where the people would sigh in fascination
at your kind. Well, here you are as exotic as a French fry.
To be fair, I’ve always had an unhealthy thing for French fries.
But you – you’re not even a McDonald’s guilty pleasure.
You’re a nameless Midtown deli’s flaccid excuse, and I’m not even hungry.

I am the queen of the crosstown bus
I wear this tiara to distinguish myself from the common commuter
My head held high, the Swarovski crystals glisten as they reflect off the MTA's windows.
Curtsy to my quirkiness! This is my kingdom.
Yesterday my carriage pulled away before I could board.
My tiara went askew as I gave chase.
This mutiny did not go unnoticed.
One will write a scathing email of complaint, or a royal Yelp!

A late onset loss
When panic attacks
With heat waving in
The turn of September
In interrupted thoughts
Start of an ending
I venture too far
To fall back again
Procession of dry tears
And rude waking dreams
Opening my book
While the phone rings

It's a tiny squeak of Life, at first blink
Where whispers have yet to find a home
The air smells different today, I think
Lighter, even while excess weighs down
We begin to own the earth again
Bones take coaxing to creak come morning
No longer a child - don't want to be
Even so, I'll dress bright as I like
Just like the tween discovering her point
And I'll eat the gummy vitamins
Paid for with the hard-earned cash derived by
My very grown-up office job
While I am barefoot come lunchtime
And I'll decide if my verse shall rhyme.
