man without a country

sweet weather channel
every time it rains inside
every twelve seconds

just like last monday
another piece slips away
you did it again

saturday forecast
will never understand you
could have reached blue sea

dummy sitting here
shopping silicone lining
royal blue cookie sheets

amazon bakeware
hurricane winter pastry
emergency cakes

first task check weather
as a good little girl should
you’re not fooling me

high sixty seven
you say this at eleven
two p m is high

so why at five uhr
on the ten day forecast page
was SEVENTY THREE

at twelve twenty five
I could have gonE TO The BEACH
people shout haiku

four long months inside
aggravated by movers
every single day

moving in the snow
hurricane when i moved in
weather just hates me

in seven short days
buying vacation condo
renting to tourists

i’m glad i didn’t
waste time hiring a
management company

five minutes ago
realized i have to live there
molding glass ceiling

how can it not be
rained in all of december
raccoons keep tearing

it’s raining right now
have not thought about packing
can’t do that again

can you tell me why
d j ‘s play sad music
foggy and rainy out

PLAY BOOGIE FEVER
don’t play LIES OF HANDSOME MEN
need Brubeck’s take five

the sun just came out
heard that song for a year already
that’s enough

which way doth the wind bloweth

yesterday i was
facing wrong direction i
was facing north

i guessed because sign
said you are now entering
north myrtle beach

then i heard a man
sitting behind talking to
his wife on the phone

he told her which way
wind was blowing very hard
confirmed suspicion

i had seen this man
walking same direction as
i was on the beach

the coincidence
of this man telling his wife
exact same timing

guessing bitter wind
learning north south east & west
synchronicity

yankee sign means north
egret paradise is south
stuck in the middle

`

i will never learn
elevator east or west
moving from d.c.

on the very end
front desk not knowing answer
they asked the question

six hundred miles away
one could need ambulance
maybe you could look

whichever way i’m facing
always wrong direction
boring wind poem

now they are busy
guessing which way snow bloweth
cannot move in snow

best of all moves or can’t type in bed

lived in the same house , until 1997. cannot even count how many times,since 2004 i have moved. yesterday was the best,of the worst.housekeeping was supposed to come at 10 am , move the refrigerator to find my mother’s pearl ring.no one came: at 11;30 i left. came back at 12;30 .no one on any floor. i moved away but very close.the door would not open. after the key turned fingers red a security guard opened door,said i should get security here to make me key cards.no one wants to or knows who will….so i left the door unlocked with jewelry and everything inside.
one of my suitcases is missing. if it had scarves i spent 1000’s of hours making, that’s not good.
at least i don’t have 50 boxes of my mother’s crystal to worry movers will break this time. being charged 500.00 a month by movers in maryland for that and 4200.00 for their pretend packing, when i had packed everything myself.
the wireless will not work. the vacation rental said she will email as soon as they find the ring.
27 hours later, still no wireless.the extension cords don’t fit , new battery. fire shot out of every outlet and it’s happening here too. wireless fixer , not related to olivia pope, said you hardly ever see that. he said i will come back tonight or anytime and fixed it for a few minutes, but nothing he tried really worked. now i think plastic is burning.apparently computers need to be flat, not fluffed up on pillows.

.can’t type in the bed.can’t see the tv . can’t move it.it’s attached to the dresser.there are no cabinets in the kitchen.you have to be 6 feet tall or have a 47 inch sleeve length to reach the disposal switch. the dishwasher door falls on you. everything is on the right , that i need on the left.

but i love the walls, lcd tv’s,ocean 50 yards away,on the 50 yard line of the pool,the jacuzzi is next door and best of all no one running on the ceiling .yes i would stay here for the pretty swirly walls .no 500.00 condo fees.700.00 a month including electricity ,wireless,24 hr security,5 pools, tennis, putting greens,ducks, goldfish , creek, cable,ocean, beautiful blue delicious looking crabs,conch shells, jellyfish that don’t sting ,baby turtles, 10 baby ducks, carp ….. d.c. area was 2100.00 for 1 bedroom and 300.00 for electricity, cable and wireless and they have no ocean.
