toast and traffic jam
in the sweaty heat of morning
doing marvellously well
startled thoughts awakening to day
like a smaller wind
beware of the
angry faux fur jacket
the terrifically-funny scarf
and the good natured idea
for thoughts change like thin words
think with fat fonts
think with originality, hope and freshness
sing charmingly, always

Toast and a hint of bitter coffee…..
No bitterness in this writer, but great writing, Simon. 🙂
…like thin words, ah yes.

Thanks for stopping by, Maxi. Blessings, M.A.
thoughts slide like eels.
I caught an eel while fishing, once — very creepy. It was like catching and reeling in a snake.
ooo … two of us once caught a salmon by hand, the salmon going upstream in a Scottish river, the river low. Then we put it on the back and felt sorry for it so put it back in the river to go on its way.
What a beautiful story! 🙂
Love it Mary Ann, I see you’re still in that underground café, full of cigarette smoke and aromatic coffee. 🙂
I tell my screenwriting friends, if I want to express myself, I’ll write a poem… Mary Ann style. 🙂 Thanks, Laurie.
It’s definitely the way to do it. 🙂
back should be bank …
I love the words, Mary Ann. Such a special poem.
Thanks. I just read your latest posts — very entertaining and interesting.
great title…stunning poem, full of filmic images and lines that keep hop-scotching in my head…
Why, thank you! 🙂
“sing charmingly, always”
What a good thought that is to carry with me through the day 🙂
Thank you so much, David. 🙂
ha, think with fat fonts, how fun!
