That’s How

Some people do the same things every day:

Peter’s cousin William

retired electrical engineer  up at 5:45

on the dot he says  he repeats the phrase because

he wants to make sure I understand it’s not

5:46 he wakes up  his coffee is on a timer

in the kitchen and he drinks his coffee with a little milk

not too much because milk isn’t good when you’re older

and then he reads two papers to get a balance of news

and  it’s 8 more or less and he is

ready to drive to the store where he will buy meatballs

if its Tuesday and chicken on Wednesday he’s

the one who cooks for them both his wife

at the gym in the morning and that’s how says William

we live the life we do.  That’s How.

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.
