haiku

alligators for
ninety million years and then
comes the purse-maker

home sweet home

for years i’ve lived quietly in a downtown parking garage. it takes a little cunning and craft, but i come and go after dark, avoid the security cameras, and sleep under the vehicles of long-term parkers who are out of state on business trips. i’ve had the garage all to myself, as the less-crafty get caught and tossed out.

but now, zounds, the garage has been turned into an emergency hospital. nowhere to hide, from the doctors or the virus.

but yay. I’ve snuck into a furniture warehouse. nobody here. they’re all sheltering at home. i sleep in a king-size!

for 100-Word Wednesday

provoke

i awoke

provoked

heartbroke

needing a smoke, a toke, and some coke

broke

what a joke

what a bloke

what a moke

rooked at crooked poker

snookered

choked  by a woke hooker

a real looker

i’m overlooked, overcooked

just an outspoke cowpoke
