Riff on Julie's Zodiac Love Date


When you're sitting at a bar
Legs crossed on a stool
Sipping one of those lady drinks
Back erect and cool;
Should a guy slip next to you
And ask you what's your sign
Remember what you learned at school
About Light and Space and Time:
When you look upon a star
It's not really there,
And when he's looking in your eyes
He's focused else somewhere.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
