hot pink rose petals line the tide haiku

beached jellyfish two
along with bright red apple
sukkos again may

fallen orange peel
dolphin engaged in wedding
pink rose petals lie

only twelve inches
will be washed away at sea
a sukkot wedding

do not give me t’s
and do not take my s’s
want to say sukkos

it’s apples and oranges
fish celebrating

“go crazy on you”
making me forget my taLe
she’s singing again

kentucky bourbon
alcohol derby and blues
just give us jazz hands

john cocuzzi sings
alexandria king street
except he’s not there

even if he was
building has left the building
you aren’t there either

“i bet you think this
song is about you don’t you”
she’s singing this now

having just written
poem no longer than two days
this song for my duck

how can she still play
“just me and bobbie mcgee
busted my g string”


royal sonesta

maybe this happens every night in new orleans, when you’re 20 years old .you go to your future brother in laws wedding at the royal somesta. the groom , a dr. , apparently, you are told needs to smoke something ,in your room ,to calm his nerves . so you run to your future in laws room, who want to know why you are upset and tell them the groom and best man are smoking marijuana. they are very understanding as always, and as upset as you.

if you think this is the most aggravation of the evening you would be wrong. the rabbi a relative of the bride cannot officiate. instead a young female rabbi is found. fast forward to the cake.the wedding date is also your fiance’s birthday, so the bride calls to him to come slice his own cake.

a few minutes later , he’s back standing next to you holding your hand again and the rabbi comes over and grabs him and kisses him, while he is still holding your hand for probably twenty seemed like twenty, when in reality it was probably thirty. i left . at least 100 people saw this.he promised he would never get drunk again.

he said he had had 5 crown royals and 3 bloody mary’s that day.he was right.i was with him and i can count.he said she wouldn’t have been able to kiss him, had he not been drunk. a few years later,2 actually, the rabbi decided not to be a rabbi anymore, but a scuba diver.

my mind nearly exploded that a rabbi would do something like that in front of everyone.of course there was rabbi neulander who befriended a mishuginah sociopath to murder his wife. and now both are in prison.neulander is beseeching and teaching prisoners to read, i think. there are sociopaths everywhere, walker railey ,a preacher, murdered his wife also.

the worst part is,i should have left that night and also 2 dumb dr’s smoking in my room and not knowing i had asthma… just an expression. my brother in law is not dumb.
