shopping list

how many of them are us
born without a homeland
left to find your own identity

displacement is not new
go ask any dinosaur
having survived the initial blast

news of a madman’s war
infiltrates the airwaves
something old is new again

the house down the street
caught fire overnight
will probably take a year to repair

I look out the bay window
counting my blessings
adding peanut butter to the list

An American blogger in Paris

I met this blogger
an American in Paris
living in paradise
(so we were lead to believe)
dishing out outrageous
autobiographical adventures
untold tales he liked to call them

And so along the way
having fallen in love with the
City of lights
he eagerly learned the language
and later
fell in love with Amélie

She brought him in
and all was good with the world
to the point where his
creativity waned
his numbers tumbling
until his online relevance
ceased to exist

as did Amélie

may two thousand twenty-one
