hot tub baby pool


“mom mommie mamma” (Father )
let’s get in the hot tub
no it’s a kiddie pool

(as a young baby
saying mom mommie mama
my crib many ways)

mommie thinks hot tub
daddy says a kiddie pool
she says it has jets

and she’s very wrong
MJ is underwater
daddy talks to him

then tells me
“I’m talking to him like he can
hear me underwater”

MJ pops up
“I can’t hear you when you talk to me

(you had to be there
hysterical family
one moment of time)

selfie, scotch & lizard


“there goes selfie
you know who I’m talking about”
posing with her camera

green anode lizard
playing marco polo with me
for four weeks now

hope you are alright
petsmart will give us your twin
for seven fifty

swirling in your head
you can feel the vitamins
milk chocolate atkins

there’s butterscotch
scotch magic tape scotch on the rocks
and love on the rocks

jumps from bench to lounge
chirp whack o molE’ has forgotten
how to fly

he did it again
but this time he looks at me
first before he leaps

now he’s contemplating
jumping into the pool
potato chip thirst

you can put yourself
into mind of animals
know their desires

I’m “sending out
an SOS to you” my favorite
lizard mate



can two grown homes
live together in a third dwelling
that’s the question

will not be able
to reach the computer
on top of the Ice Box)
