Anything but Still, Life

Still Life with a Hat, an Umbrella, and a Bag. John Frederick PetoStill Life, 1907 by John Frederick Peto 


I am nothing
….if not well
-hung and ready for anything.
Rain, shine, a magic carpet
bag of tricks dang
-led to help me
trompse the earth. Shall I go forth bare
-foot, or find my clunkiest shoes? Help
me choose, Love. I’m hooked on you,
………………………………….and waiting.
