lovely day III Jay 2

`

we travel first class
in the cockpit or by sea
like barbara streisand

happy on liquor
she was in her element
grandmother speaking

this is the best part
they were at the mayflower
breakfast in d.c.

grandma kept seeing
people with children leaving
she did not know why

thought this a buffet
no one looked at the menu
seventy five bucks

we are all laughing
he told grandma to take
the entire cheesecake

he asked me
“don’t you think that’s too much”
of course two thousand and fourteen

buffet to die for
ritz carlton only fifty
but please do not die

and then one day
grandpa wanted to get jay 2
tickets for his son

the guy at the box office
said we don’t have any
jay 2 tickets

thought trey liked jay two
only the box office said
we only have Z

`
7/25

music soothes his soul

`

wrestler with tattoo
when he pulled stick from mouth
was so very happy

preparing to run
instead yellow lollipop
wasn’t cigarette

breath giving duck pond
finest wind you’ll ever meet
never lets you down

bobble head my friend
“hot stuff baby this evenin”
appearing all year

bird landed beside
he didn’t even frighten
they are true friends now

thrash flies away
lizard comes to show us dancing
floor show you can’t miss

ducks live
where tropical winds delight
every fiber of your being

who invented this
greatest architect on earth
between the towers

saltwater fish duck
when bread crumbs fly overhead
ducklings with mothers

tram drives by ducklings
“it’s a small world after all”
like you’re at disney

people think i’m here
for their entertainment
but there’s no cover charge

talk to you constantly
so you cannot write
make you forget haiku
