Standing In A Sea You Cannot See

wanting french fries
the way G-d intended them with
salt and heinz ketchup

dolphin pairs undulate
unbroken no footprints
calm wind no more blows

who’s idea was this
going back to glasses of
the 1950’s

arm deer with rifles
giving them a fighting chance
9 mm uzi
`
Pooling Pool Thoughts
replaced by Enchanting Fog
prepossessing charm
`
fog twenty five feet
larry david heaven scenes
honoring life birds

actually never
forgetting beautiful fog
exactly heaven

picturing movies
wanting to stand here always
april attraction

magic fog surrounds
cannot see ten feet away
capturing beauty

no one else in world
completely calm alone as
if G-d is with you

knowing the only
reason you feel this way is
because of tv

nothing like highway
only fear is you cannot
see where the sea is.

slowly reaching you
cannot even see past first
wave on your toes

totally surrounded
delightful fogginess
eventually

magically lifting
two other signs of life
appearing in distance

sigh of relief
not one with the sea he might just
run ashore get ya

and no one would know
when no one else is looking
parting in two halves

calgon, mr bubble, ivory snow take me away

a small interruption in summer, brought to you by dove & murphy’s law. yesterday, i find it hard to sleep , because latin pop music was coming from the living room. someone has stolen my jazz station.
a normal, average day ,not unlike any other ,since the 8th of december, 1999, hanukkah. normal as in murphy’s law.
fourteen months of peaceful jazz to sleep with…who changed channel 36 to 45 & now it says no signal?
no time for that now.what the devil is wrong with my arm.oh ringworm how nice. bosco, ottie, gracie …they blame dogs?

you have to read this funny.once a dr , an osteopath or something told me i had feline leukemia. i laughed , but it was the only time in my life i had a cat. (he didn’t know anastasia was living under my house, so i put her on the screened in porch & fed her every day.when she became pregnant this cat person told me we should put her in the warm garage .when we found no kittens, we took anastasia to the vet, who laughed because anastasia was a boy the entire time). doctor or whoever you were ,don’t you think i have enough diseases without this feline thingy…
so we have a dog a cat & there was the deer who apparently gave me lyme disease when i was 7 but i don’t find out until it’s too late ,resistant in 2011 & the mosquitoes dr. cheney & NIH blame for CFIDS in st. thomas in 1983.

so,it was supposed to be the last warm day,however the wind is a warm 17 mph without gusts & the weather channel is only 10 degrees off guessing. at 11 a m it begins pouring like a hurricane & last night i find a very wet ceiling , after bossy fixed the roof.you would think the worst thing today would be knowing you can’t go outside for 4 months, but now ceiling can turn to mold .

i already needed a tranquilizer to be aggravated by the new moving company,after spending months with mary & before mary ,they gave me paige…eighteen email with mary about complications.can anyone dust.i left 9 years ago….don’t bring the tv it weighs 400 pounds & takes 4 people to lift.it got wet in the moving truck during a hurricane in 99……but that’s another story…after 2 months, something happened to mary & now stepford wives keep answering my questions as hi new person we will be glad to give you an estimate.. hello mary did that a long time ago.we are way past that……..two months wasted.

then ,what appears in the kitchen ,ants.i want to say i can’t believe this, but yes of course,my life has been a soap opera since i was eighteen , who am i kidding 14 years, 24/7 but really ,since one week ,after 12th grade.
i have an entire story about ants, i want to say october the 20th..i know now how & why the ants appear.

then i write my brother about signing contract .how can that be anything but tension.while b/p is already jumping out of your chest,let’s write a new moving co., storage co…

i wish mc donald’s would say you deserve a break , but no, so i apparently didn’t have enough on what’s left of my brain & tell my realtor ,sure yall come on over tomorrow & we’ll make an offer on a condo.

it’s tomorrow ,so at 9:49 a m & bossy decides to try breaking in & spray pesticide… 2 simple words no chemicals…
the owner & i had an agreement i can only move in if no pesticide… exterminators put key in door every 2 months,9 a m / nightgown & say we will write it down , but bossy said it’s up to him…this is like the 7th time…there would be no ants,except for the m&m fiasco, but i spray tobasco sauce.fourteen months of bossy literally breaking in the other condo.i’m asleep . then he pretended the a c leaked instead of the roof, causing me to leave for days .. then he said he fixed the roof , but obviously not.

technically he is breaking in , but mentally he truly broke in last september & scared me half to death, when i had just really had 5 people break in , in maryland & really had ptsd. murphy wouldn’t let him him break in , if i wasn’t already afraid of this.

then i go to universal orlando where police try to come in at 4 am also & how does a person who is ill from toxic molds have mold appear in every darn state they go to get away from it?
dr . says go to a new building,then 4 years later there’s toxic mold in maryland. florida it wasn’t toxic that i know, but mold…..myrtle beach – both condos.

oh and when i tried to leave my house in charleston, after racoons broke in , 2007, & after i fell down the stairs ,5000.00 /hospital, i was going back to virginia & the hotel i stay at had person after person reviewing that the hotel as having mold.i was going to rent a new apartment ,they built outside my bedroom & the lease said if you find mold & that’s when i threw it out the window.

cab drivers who took me to the dr every other day for 5 years told me about this woman who got sick from toxic mold ,like me ,at the hilton,across the street who got millions & all i got was 14 years of aggravation ,2640.00 a month health insurance & lawyers who said too complicated or they don’t know how & the statute of limitations ran out, when my real estate lawyer said she would have helped me.

so boss thinks it’s up to him. the very best thing that could happen would be choking & an asthma attack & then hospital.worst would be death.i am already about to throw him out the window for the sawdust in my lungs & waking at 8 am , 6 days a week,for 4 weeks.there are 4 people here & 80 condos, but he picks the ill person’s bedroom window & door to saw boards in front of….who else murphy? a very long 24 hours…

duck duck duck seagull

pierre stands behind
to the right favorite spot
two inches behind

how do you know him
because all ducks look alike
he will push your knee

game that children play
taking bread from my fingers
every other duck

saltwater swimming
paddling their feet while eating
suddenly seagulls

crash landing flapping
scare everyone taking bread
away darling ducks

motionless afraid
ducks pretend they are statues
looking for hitchcock

i am so afraid
of him even though i’ve never
seen his movies

i imagine this
ducks are imagining too
unfriendly seagulls

no they aren’t imagining
ducks experiencing
seagulls pecking


john writes friends at work
december i’m at the beach
seventy seven

of course jealousy
then everyone grows colder
i explain the wind

13 m.p.h.
ten day forecast is shocking
checks out on their phones

have i turned into
weather channel ask bitter ben
he will tell you

why do we yell fore
golf course hit on the noggin
look ahead beware

billions of people in world you had to pick me as your only friend ever to torture

unless that’s a lie too so good at being mean

hate you, hate you,hate you more everyday
.

most unspeakably mentally cruel person ever met
.

playing with person’s mind
.

you hurt my heart make it beat too fast too sleep

you make me sick you make me cry eyes swollen

you make me miserable

you burn my heart throat

why did you have to speak to me

but the worst part

you keep me awake trying to understand what you are

whatever it is is bad

evil one second sweet the next

terrible nightmare will never ever end

gets worse every day don’t understand you anymore

hate you never have another chance to hurt my feelings again
every time i come back think you make up for terrible

things you say you make it so much worse let me think

horrible things that probably aren’t even true

i tried to be friend every day so you could have one no matter how much you made me confused and miserable and all i get is pain
all you do is turn from sweet to pain and a monster

flounder floundering III

your mouth wide open
walk all the way to the beach
no bridge over creek

ten feet are stolen
fall through into the water
man says four days tops

only at low tide
can walk all the way around
amazing maze

halloween low tide
purple crabs scurry to holes
untouched shells

i will stay feed you
you never turn down sunbeam
we will eat all day.
`
mr mullet voice
“make the hotel next door take
you home in their cart”

was almost high tide
second bridge comes into view
gate being lifted

back to the fish tail
dolphin playing shark story
crystal blue water

mr mullet speaks
“i will do anything once
but never again”

two girls found a shark
i’m sure the witches had
visions of necklaces

had to wash off red
he missed dancing with dolphins
teach him not to kill

honeymoon tail
he fell asleep in the gulf stream
fishing for marlin

halfed a dramamine
after groom’s tummy ache
10 foot swells

hurricane coming
no one told me mile below
i caught a tuna

grab the seat in front
every time your head would fall
fear ocean slumber
