One

T.P. That’s all Independence, Iowa Food bank gives out! Causes me to ponder, Iowa food stamp program instead of patting me on the back for trying to survive by selling my books and living on less then nine hundred a month after Covid-19 my food stamps went down to thirty dollars, Some months I makeContinue reading “One”

Jolly holidays

Aren’t holidays to be jolly, Aren’t friends to come by and say howdy? I miss WordPress that didn’t fight me when I wrote, I miss hitting the next line thing and going down, With this unsmart phone I nearly break my writing finger off before the next paragraph starts, I have a Brothers typewriter, ButContinue reading “Jolly holidays”

Historical speaking

Historian I am, Studied at NICC and Luther College, No deployma upon my wall you see, TBI could not test out of statistics, I understand it, When I asked why a fifty-six year old needed math to teach history I was assured that it would teach me a new way to think, I’m a poorContinue reading “Historical speaking”

Next week past forty

Irrational, Irksome, Terrible cold, Like magic next week next to fifty degrees, Time warp! Tarsus, No,no , I’ll stick with irrational, First of December temperatures, Plummith once more, Some wizard is playing with the temperature, If they it is irrationally warm up north what is it in the tropics? Having Verizon I have no wayContinue reading “Next week past forty”

Goodnight,

Goodnight to one and all, I saw a troubling movie commercial this afternoon, It was a Christmas ‘No way in hell will the theater get my money!’ Its like ax murders Santa Claus! Its bad enough stores have turned Christmas into shop till you drop, Spend,spend,spend, From before Halloween, And Walmart plays hip hop butContinue reading “Goodnight,”

Would love to work in Real Estate or back into Hospitality

However theres this dude who dies an infomercial, Doesn’t tell us his name, Tells us to goggle him, Bullshit that’s not the way to get people to work with you, You talk to people, You introduce yourself, You level the playing ground, Hi I’m Val, I sell books, Write and am a poet, Great drivingContinue reading “Would love to work in Real Estate or back into Hospitality”

Linkedin

Love talking history, Today I wanted to talk about algorithms, On Amipor & Company on PBS, Midnight last, I caught the last words, The conversation had been about the internet, The talk could define Goggle’s advertising, As soon as you like, Or search for something, Bingo, Bammo they got your number, Linkedin sends me notes,Continue reading “Linkedin”

Don’t cross the road

Was told yesterday cockroaches don’t, Cross the road, Old trailers not stripped, You have no proof bug sprayed by Agent of landlord, Chickens cross the road, Cats and dogs, My car with poet driving, And even poet crosses the line, Albeit=However, However Cockroaches do not amble across Any road.

A celebrations

Not intended to be spent alone, The problem with now is unbroken ice, Allow me to shatter erroneous beliefs, Gatherings within communities strengthen them, I’m proud of where my community is thought to be, People lets face facts still kill us, Why is that? Its because they still refuse to see us, The unknown isContinue reading “A celebrations”

Santa’s call

One someone’s call, Long ago, Night before Saint Nicholas visit, Mom like always toiled away, Working to make a little families Christmas special, Two small girls scurried around, Out of the blue, A miracle of wonder occured, It was years later truth came out, For the value it had, Nothing comes close to that oneContinue reading “Santa’s call”
