summer with an S & starfish

i found a starfish
wanted to place him deeper
perfectly healthy

the diagnosis
remembered two bikinis
saving one life hey

i have bikini
mr mullet can go deep
saving starfish life

little boy stops me
angler wanted the starfish
not to save his life

he said they can’t live
washing ashore is not good
can’t leave their coral.

i say poppycock
only bikinis can save
starfish it seems.

The Lift

third floor please exit
shaking head no wrong floor
they keep motioning

no i want first
you will not fool me this time
“coming from the beach ?

well you’re dressed like it”
no i’m going TO the beach
you had two guesses

(if i’m going down
and my hair isn’t wind blown
and i am not wet)

“how long have you been
here” one year and four weeks
i talk in haiku .
`
Waterfall

i see you cutie
don’t have to bite my finger off
or jump for the bread

ducks are like dogs
see how close we can stand
wiggle our tails.
`
Speaking Of Tails

when i was supping
brother in law a dentist
dining on a tail

i was horrified
said hoping i wouldn’t see
a delicacy

fish was caught by moi
no one to blame but myself
husband who taught me.

Sunshine On My Shoulder Makes Me Sunburned

computer said zero
percent chance of rain until
seven p m

one thirty drizzling
on my toes very wet
raindrops sunglasses

clouds blowing fast
will stop in a few minutes
sunshine appears

Friday/two bikini’s a troll doll a bellman & 2 weddings

on the shore “savin lives

older bikini
tells me as the younger threw
starfish back in

BELLMAN

“your husband
probably loves that you
have laryngitis”.

“you’re not married
probably a good thing?
i don’t know”.

“yeah they’ve got
SUSHI & all that stuff
at our restaurant”.

NO ONE KNOWS
what a VEGETARIAN is
myrtle beach.

`
NEED A CAMERA
couldn’t even write haiku
died laughing

lady’s hair blown
exactly like troll doll
gray with black roots.

if i had her picture
wouldn’t even have to
write haiku.
