• life is a good experience.•

Spent a soothing Sunday
faffing about –
walking the dogs,
and hanging out.
Went for a lovely bike ride,
wind in my hair,
all the other walkers and bikers
and runners were out there,
taking in the sunshine
and the cool of the evening.
Nestled on the couch with my best buds,
JoJo and Shaye,
watching episodes of Time Team, and snacking on frozen grapes
and strawberries –
(‘snacky treats’, for they).
Woke up with ‘look up faff’ in my head.
Faff, huh. Nifty, nay?
Off to work, now,
in the tradition
of dinosaur-avoiding early ancestors of old,
exploiting a nighttime economy.
Life is a good experience,
if you make it that way.

• to be realistic •

I keep trying to be ‘realistic’,
but it’s just not in me.
Hell, I’ve made it this far
being a ‘fluke of Nature’,
why change horses midstream?
Nay, I say! Naaaaaaaay!
Let’s play, shall we?
Self-determination has for so long been my mainstay,
that I am convinced it is the way,
at least, for me.
Ever onward, friend,
toward
that enviable, ever-elusive,
‘happy day’,
toward
that elegant country.
