Oh What the Hell


Gracefully inept at life’s perfection

gleefully disorganized and simple

and who put the milk in the top freezer?

Sometimes I think that gremlins reside here

glowing and rising with the autumn sun

think I forgot to buy the half & half

good thing my favorite color is black,

since the toaster forgot to pop again

ribbon-like clouds adrift off to the east.

chickadees return to the empty feeder

soft rain arrives, my umbrella misplaced.

I have five but cannot find even one.

adapt to life with its imperfections,

oh what the hell, I might as well just smile.
