Vacation and Vacuum Cleaner
Few have died from dusty floors
But people have just lain down and died from dusty souls...
You really can take it anywhere
Careful one doesn’t get a spare
Morning looks like grizzly bear
or wandered into lion’s lair…
When I Look in a Mirror
I see a face that is tired worn but not old
a word I do not use for anyone
I prefer antique...
