    port and tort, after dinner delight
    I don’t drink the port though, it gives me a headache.
    the idea is nice though, thick and sweet and intoxicating.
    Things like that should not cause pain.

  • Joni commented on the post, couch 8 years ago

    not the place for me. Couch? ouch
    I’d rather sleep on the floor.
    I’d rather walk out the door and into my car and drive off.
    Couch is for slouch. Haven’t owned one in years. Makes for lazy time…
    sometimes I miss the cuddling.

  • Joni commented on the post, pouch 8 years ago

    Pouch.
    not in the mood, I guess.

    Just breath
    hold it in…

    Let it out…

    Pouch.

  • Joni commented on the post, rally 8 years ago

    really? rally?
    today of all days, with its overcast and heartache
    Today when I rallied at 5am to get on a train, to get on a bike, to get to a class that I didn’t want to be in in the first place.
    Rally the troops of my soul to do something worthwhile.

  • Joni commented on the post, hover 8 years ago

    I do
    Like my mother
    Like I am his mother, I hover and judge.
    I hover and critique the world as though I am without flaw
    because I am full of flaw
    because I work so hard to be above it

  • Joni commented on the post, bars 8 years ago

    Places people go to live and die.
    Feels like living, but killing yourself simultaneously.
    In so many ways a place to put bars on happiness.
    Barred from living the life you seek.

  • Joni commented on the post, salt 8 years ago

    Salt in my nose
    changed my life.
    neti.
    Salt in the shower, neti
    now no allergies, no sinus infections, no headaches.
    NO Asthma.
    Salt in my nose
    changed my life.
    neti.
    Salt, like the ocean, purifies us

  • Joni commented on the post, sponge 8 years ago

    Did I miss it, that magic time when a brain is a sponge,
    when my son was a sponge… did I give enough,
    did I waste it?
    Is there still time?
    Can we get re-sponged even in our older years?

  • Joni commented on the post, avenue 8 years ago

    We gonna rock down to…
    sometimes you don’t think you’ll find yourself on the same avenue
    16 years in the past
    16 years ago, a different you
    Same people, nothing new.
    Like time stayed still here.

  • Joni commented on the post, chance 8 years ago

    Chance is a dog I know
    In most ways he is slow.
    But in the river he dives
    and I follow.
    He dove under a boulder
    and shot out the other side.
    I did too.
    It was a hell of a ride.

  • Joni commented on the post, secretary 8 years ago

    Secretary
    A foreign concept to me.
    But, perhaps a good idea.
    Yes, I think I need a secretary.

  • Joni commented on the post, missed 8 years, 1 month ago

    My aching back missing happy morning sleepy time.
    I miss the work.
    Off target sometimes, but alway on track.
    Sometimes I hit it spot on.
