UnGreat Expectations


Dr. G. & I chat over cheese-drizzled rolls
stuffed with fresh avocado. “I didn’t realize
you hadn’t eaten here before! ” at San Jose's
Cypress St. Senior Citizens’ Center. Me:
“No, I hadn’t; I just assumed it would be
the worst cafeteria food, but it isn’t.”

Dr. G.: “It’s a well-balanced meal.” Me:
“Yes, it is; I was wrong. Have I told you
about my 10p tea-times with Scottish
Schizophrenics in Dundee’s city-centre? ”
Dr. G.: “Yes. Many times. Great stories.”
Me: “Well, I enjoyed every one of them.”

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
