Addendum to Poetry Edition 3 ⯁ 2021

This page features some poems that I wrote on postcards and mailed to a few of my book-blogging book-lovin’ friends.

This first one I sent to Stef in Minnesota:

Had lunch with friends

old friends, new again

some, notreallyjustbut

acquaintances  ̶

Stopped to buy groceries

on way home

before that, stopped at an Indie bookstore

found these KS postcards

and,

wanted to…

inspired to!

WRITE A POEM

(this poem)

freeform

Writing, drinking beer, after

planting, zinnias potting;

That were on sale at the grocer

for $2 each.

Another poem, I sent to my friend Meg, a former coworker:

Am finding stress

alleviation perhaps

distraction from

by cutting 4 x 6 cards

or not quite quite 4 and

5 1/2 + or so

This is from Maxor.

Am I trying to

antagonize the

PostMaster,

as a book penpal

suggests?*

Is this a poem?

it doesn’t even reference

the blue, green

pharmacy view

Wish you were here

(not “here” as in inside the pharmacy!!! LOL)

And a big THANK YOU to Stef for sending me this nifty LitHub article about pie.

*Ruthiella told me I was antagonizing the post office. LOL
