 Day one of Poetry Month.

Walking on the sidewalk,

I make way for a group 

going the other way,

and I hear,

"And then he stood there like he got

daydreamed into another reality."

Sitting at a table munching a scone

when I hear a guy talking 

about driving a truck 

up in Alaska,

"I worked 70 hours a week for forty years,

Man, what a waste of time."

Sitting in a workshop,

the instructor takes a break

to tell a few interesting things

he's overheard. 

"Not all monkeys are in the zoo."


is the best
