Cheap Wine Date

Cheap wine and a cheap date

Nothing left to do,

Except wonder the dirty streets

Block after block

Until our feet begin to hurt

And all the words have been let out

And neither of us,

Have anything left to say

She is a nice enough girl

Pretty, seems smart,

But she just not a good fit,

For someone like me

There are problems with girls like this

She seems to have all that she needs,

All her wants sewn up tight

But, there is a lack of excitement

No danger or regret to her

I have many faults

And a lot of holes to plug

I need randomness,

And all that come with the


She seems content

She doesn’t seem to have that

Certain need to scrutinize,

Shine or explore

So we just keep walking

Maybe I should just walk her home

Maybe we need

A more expensive time

Or maybe we should

Have stayed put

And just drank more

Cheap wine

Early Morning Rise

I stir

Still waking

I get up and shuffle around

Like an old car, I need to

Warm up

or else

I’ll stall


Peak out

Old windows

Get a taste for the day

Make a plan, what to do

Sipping coffee

And reading

Morning news


Finally alert

Cobwebs cleared

And ready to start the day

All this world is a stage

And I

Have plans

To shine
