I acknowledge what I deny but then what?

World Peace a silly notion
Inner peace sillier
Or is it the other way around?

Sun streams through forest mist
Blood test cholesterol levels
Cool night for a hot tub
Wait for anti-depressant to kick in

Steady breathing helps then          SPACE

Popcorn for dinner           AN IDEA

I don't like to be pigeonholed           YAWN

Whole Wheat Radio           ART

Hieronymus Bosch Does Guerneville
Other people believe in Andy Kaufman
