She had the good looks of a young Walter Mathau.: Lost Lines from 2010

She had the good looks of a young Walter Matthau.

I did not
walk in a city in Spain
walk the cobblestones in the rain
or buy a perfect impractical pair of shoes.

Hell is  Mandy Patinkin

He felt happy after a haircut
he wanted to be happy.
he got a haircut everyday

“give it a trim, Jim”

The moon
a hanging pearl
containing the ocean


When god sends you to your room

Oh terror
thy name

(written by Sid, my cat)

This world is full of flowers that never bloom.

six words from the lotus of a thousand petals meditation on the word “happiness”
(don’t you love when the title is three times longer than the poem?)


hi world.
just a tiny well-intentioned suggestion:

if not already in circulation
may I offer
a book title:

The Elements of Bacon

that’s all.
