so that others may stay.

thank you to his mackinac island dock porter brothers from so many years ago.

bread and poetry.

Standard

yes, that is

a cookie groundhog

with a chocolate chip face

popping out of a bagel hole

covered in cream cheese snow

sprinkled with smashed up wafer cookie dirt .

in honor of world poetry day (yesterday)

and groundhog day (in february)

and bread and peace. (everyday)


“peace goes into the making of a poem as flour goes into the making of bread.”

lukewarm.

Standard

how excited was i 

when i discovered 

that my local mcdonald’s 

chose to give me this special cup?!

what a statement this was

what a compliment

they must have been waiting

for just the right customer to come along

this lid was like a badge of honor

clearly written in two languages

for all the world to see

i carried it with pride

as i went to add my cream

and it was then

that i noticed 

that it had come from

a huge sleeve of coffee cup lids

 all carrying the exact same message. 

clearly written

in two languages.
