Zen Off the Drawing Board

 

It’s good out here
in the back yard–
a purple cottage,
a gray garage,
a red and yellow
front house,
meandering cats &
two picnic tables.
Things could have
turned out worse.

 

I’ve got a wheelbarrow,
a rake & a
brown picket fence,
a can of
roll-your-own
tobacco a
pot of coffee.
This that &
the other thing
need fixing, but
I’m in coast mode.
I did everything
just right to
wind up here,
& with a
little luck I’ll
slide into death
effortlessly,
followed closely by
the whole human race.
