Three Poems

alike meet
we caught up
told less older
more than then obvious
pics of meals and offspring
decorating happenings
accepted and shared about
announcing more 
perhaps selves
cropped between
another green
to exploit
bring it back post
moment pause edit 
the other not me
in similitude
a rant 
a spat
a quiz 
a following
the politics
the applause
the familiar
all smarter than 
what the weather’s like


random thought yellowed letter 
coming to mind drip 
call up tongue act
hand given retouch characters 
stroked wild in tune
at least seem said 
aloud aroused amount to 
more please escape while 
dance with inward wander 
again attached almost taste 
despite another hand taking
so here this trying 
to misread between lines 
what might mean echoes 


being means 
I dive into 
refuse like my father 
remain nameless 
everywhere I read 
it’s addicting 
being skeptical 
actual scientists get this
the more you melt away 
the result contains 
found in most 
clinically tested 
further regularity 
your body 
absorbs testimonials 
raves about the taste test
pleased to say results 
I’ve experienced 
the company confirmed
