almost a full day

14 Jul

i was bored so i
stuffed 47 one dollar bills in a pickle bucket and
then threw the bucket into the air,
millionaire confetti.

then i borrowed a friend’s 5 speed Honda
gripped the transaxle and
wondered what comes after 5th?

i was ready to spin a plastic beach ball earth on one finger
and so I did.

that covered money, control, and power
so then I took a vacation,

staring through water cascading from the bathtub spout and
saying “iguacu” threee times.

all in one day too with a lawn chair at night
hearing birds that must have over slept.

    You’d be amazed at how many of my days go this way. I find it very relaxing.
