When I was fifty-six

Standing on the threshold of forty-seven, My entire world was like Jenga, You know the game like giant pixie sticks pull out the wrong one and you are doomed, Mom and I were watching TV, I on the floor at moms feet with Patches, Patches was an orange cat, Patches arrived at my cat hostelContinue reading “When I was fifty-six”

Sention beings

Humanity finds it hard, What stupid beast we are, Judging other mammals only worth to be hunted to extinction, Mere ornaments for a wall, Let’s look at human traits: Thought animals four and two figure things out, Cognitive thought my cats hate walking on the ground its to humdrum they prefer jumping from box ofContinue reading “Sention beings”

November but still February temperature

Historic chill in northern Iowa air, Unnormal ten degrees low, Months early deep freeze, No surprise last three years our winters have gotten worse, An oozing injury and a government puts a small bandaid on global warming, Two nineteen food stamps, Fuck that! Last month I had eleven dollars, Wasn’t going to use their moneyContinue reading “November but still February temperature”

Roman candle

Stands alone, Bossy cat, Stays and waits, Rules the house, Her way or the highway, When all are at rest, No need to count, Sadie’s in the big room, Watching, I aware in a previous life she roamed the sea, A pirate bad ass, Bickering here, Bickering there, Law of all she sees, Sadie aContinue reading “Roman candle”

Eight O nine

Still fifty-two degrees, Feels saunaish in my home, Two nights ago was cold, We were taught at the Heike’s if its summer and a yard sale has blankets or Afghans or quilts buy them, Nana’s sofa no one else wanted me included, It was flowered and very low, To give it height I suck magazineContinue reading “Eight O nine”

Sixty years ago

Just sixty years ago, October meant rain, Cold dreary days and more rain, Two years ago in twenty twenty we had rain then Bam, Snow, That’s was the year we sprung to Spring in March, Springing back first weekend in November, Mother nature already has darkness at seven p.m. in northern Iowa, Who are weContinue reading “Sixty years ago”

Churches

Church and state, Iowa and everywhere, No longer allowed, Use church halls for homeless to sleep out of the winter cold, Come inside, Frostbit every where, Now go to emergency wards, Say they are going to kill themselves, Just fir a bed for the night, Take beds few that they are for real crazies, BetterContinue reading “Churches”

Five O two

Dun roman through dream land, Time to rise, Stalkers Waiting to know my thoughts, Never says a thing, She knows if she did her neck is caught, Then I’ll know the creeps email and she will be blocked from all my writing and video sites, One day I will win over this Iowa slug, NoContinue reading “Five O two”

Needing

Praying with anticipation purring with anticipation, Sadie has wandered into the room, CPSTD -emotional distress causes me to panic, Everything and everyone set it off, My narcississistic half sister damaged all in her wake, Diana the Titanic, Even Sadie trying to find a comphy place to lie, https://cptsdfoundation.org/2020/06/15/narcissistic-abuse-and-complex-post-traumatic-stress-disorder/ Panic mode sucks Diana will have murderedContinue reading “Needing”
