spewing that sticky nasty sap


she needs a nap, or a snap
decision, some closure of
and rant
and reason.
she needs a season of rest,
a trestle to lean on.

it’s all a trap, and she needs
a new bap
about the head to snap
out of it, a flapping of
wings and a tree
to count rings, and
all those finer things
in life that stick
and stay.

or better yet, just get her
a mocha caramel frappe
and stay
out of her way.


Prompted by a phrase from my Shawna. 🙂

  1. Shawna says:

    “some closure of pant(s)” I’m totally cracking up over here! That and the last stanza are priceless. 🙂

  2. I need a trestle, too! And a closure of rant. How I’d love to have the time to count the rings of a tree! Great job!

  3. So witty, De. Still laughing over pant(s) and Bap(tism).
