jan jan

This first month grey
Gets a little long in the tooth
A dental film that keeps on looping
Relentless in minutes hours days of gloom
Rooms to roam and get lost in
Sliding down the hall in socks
And driving with EFE turned up high
Helps to beat away the blues
Brushing if not flossing
The snow is melting on the bird feeder
The squirrel is maxxed out
Tall tail
Peanuts claimed maimed devoured
Putting the yam jam in jan jan
Hawaiian impatiens impatient for spring

what in TarNation?

Tar Nation?!
what bubbles up in Tar Nation
stays in Tar Nation
for now
ahhhhhhhhhhh
the land of miracle mud

what in TarNation?!
a little bit of
bit
you

New Year's Day Wasp

On the 53rd parallel
The night of the first
Wings, hums and stinger
A groggy guest mid-winter
harbinger of industry
And slumbers
Word nests and wispy blankets
Unexpected visits from ethereal friends
Fading paper whites and crisp yellow jackets
There's a place for you next to the pomegranates
No need for resolutions
Fly as you are
