Coincidences April 28 (CV)

I met Alfie years ago through a woman

named Ellen I met on the bus she was talking about massages

just like that and she said Do You Want the Best Massage

You’ve Ever Had in Your Life and I can’t say exactly why

I trusted Ellen about the massage maybe because she was

older and not in excellent condition she had no apparent life philosophy

probably didn’t even take Vitamin D and I love massages

liked Ellen well enough to take down the number in my

notebook so I wouldn’t lose it actually called Alfie when I got home

and made an appointment for a massage Have Two Hours Free

he said which seemed unbelievable and I went to his small apartment

full of my favorite flea market magic and was actually there for Three Hours

and told Alfie I’d be back and did go a few more times and then years

intervened the way they can and we found one another again Before Corona

and I had another perfect long long massage and he called yesterday

to say that I had to listen immediately to Raul Esparza singing

Hallelujah and I listened and listened and thought about this crazy time

we’re living in now. And coincidences. And songs.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
