reverse psychology

on opening day
vegas future odds
for winning the world series
has the chicago cubs
at eighty to one
the same as the pirates
and the mariners
and right behind
the new york mets

wish I could say
I’ve got the fever
but now into my fifth decade
of blindly following
the lovable ones
I’ve since grown jaded
often pondering
if there is more to life
than mere losing

march two thousand thirteen

she works with fierce loyalty
gathering meals from fields
carried on her hind legs and
fed to the developing brood

inside the critical chamber
she sprinkles water in the air
fluttering her wings to regulate
a perfect temperature

having neither time nor energy
to consider her own demise
she again leaves the hive
to ensure her queen’s legacy
