after I accept your tiny
packet of potion,
you’ll pull me in your
den of dabs
with sights set
on slathering
away
my well-earned
wrinkles —in exchange
for my hard-earned
dollars.

Happy New Year 2018

webfinalnewyearfishswimsreworkedpainting20120908-_73Q1040-Recovered

Last year, next year,
same list year after year.
I’ll eat more broccoli,
and less chocolate and chips.

I’ll be kinder to strangers,
and more patience with family.
I’ll open my eyes to sunrises
and hear beauty in rain.

I’ll sing outside the shower
and paint with bright colors.
I’ll draw and write everyday
even when I have nothing to say.

2017 ends and 2018 begins,
I start this New Year,
with a heart brimming
with good intentions.

She sits in her parlour,
waiting for suitors
to buy her a burger

Annie’s is a fun, family friendly place at the U of M Minneapolis campus.  And yes, her burgers are great.
