"Everything Was Groovy"

On exiting the movie
Everything had changed
Everything was groovy
My thoughts all rearranged.

"Lost Its Whorl"

Much I see is different
As now I face the World
What I thought important
Has somehow lost its whorl.

"Feeling Christmas"

Already feeling Christmas
Already seeing white
Already having Christmas thoughts
That keep me up at night.

"Heed the Warning"

Birds fly south this morning
They waited for the snow
Should I heed the warning
Leave before I know?

"The Stupid Thing"

When she does the stupid thing
Behaves like a blonde
Is when she hears the church bells ring
Is when she joins beau monde.

"Where My Poor Heart Heals"

I spend my days in shopping malls
Searching for the deals
In the stores and retail stalls
Is where my poor heart heals.

"Cram It into a Tweet"

If you can't cram it into a tweet
Best to leave it alone
Your writing hand had best be fleet
Attention span has flown.

"Take Her for a Shaker"

My father was an ardent Quaker
My mother a double-dunker
You wouldn't take her for a Shaker
If you'd seen them in the junker.

"A Quiet Crushes Red Sox Land"

A quiet crushes Red Sox Land
(Their bats were silenced first)
Those who know well understand
This hurt that hurts the worst.
