Velocity Vector

Vain, venal, vile, vexatious and vapid.
From that list to POTUS the trip is too rapid.

Applause Limes

I quite regret the text I sent.
Those weren’t at all the words I meant.
I’m coming deeply to resent
Autocorrect. Clap flatulent!

Fuzzy Friends With Benefits

Guinea pigs, gerbils,
Mice, hamsters and rats
Good pets for people
Fantastic for cats

Flag Poem

White square in the center of a blue one twice as large;
Right triangles, red on gold, with shared hypotenuses;
Blue rectangle stacked on red like freight crates on a barge;
White X on a sea of blue. These flags do have their uses!

You Know Who

I like learning stuff. I do.
It’s doubtful I know more than you
But I know different things, for sure;
That’s why I’m me and you’re who you’re.

Time Out

When you’re behind on watching stuff
Avoiding spoilers can be tough.
Right now the Cavs still have a chance, and
So do those not Evan Hansen.
Maybe I’ll just stay awake
All night or, better yet, I’ll take
A social media hiatus
‘Til I’ve caught the broadcasts. Laters!

Sequel

I loved you
Once
More than once
I loved
What you were
Once
I loved

I want to love
What you are
But
You are not
What you were
I loved
Once

Once I loved what you were
You are not but what you are
I want to love

I loved
Once what you were I loved more than once
Once I loved you
