If you take a goose to the Fox River Mall
he won’t like it at all

He’ll squawk and he’ll squeak
flapping at friends, pointing  where to meet

And soon they’ll gather in a gaggle
taking their merry time to waggle

As down the road they go
without a single package in tow.                                         11/26/16

The Drawcertain nights will be                                                                                                                                         recalled more than others

the night your mother gave birth                                                                                                                                                                                            the caterwaul before the glory

the night of skinny-dipping                                                                                                                                 waves lapping you like live massage

the night you drove through                                                                                                                                home calling, pulling, singing

the night that was so dark                                                                                                                                        you could not find yourself

the night of spring peepers                                                                                                                          promising to make love ruined renewed

and then, that night when footlights                                                                                                               glittery as diamonds shined on your story
