no-name victim of despair & resignation

I am a fool to be cool
today I noticed what is one the end of my fork

breakfast with wireman and lightningrod
if the truth got to be told
how can i write about my my maskless rampage to the store today

cold comfort
but it beats being feeling guilty
remorse or morose thoughts
I am addicted to those gummies I really need them to make it through the winter till the cool bus season kicks in.

foggy morning
in sky ...in brain
double whammy
as they say, but who are they
but I digress
the Fog is dominate
gray sky...gray matter
we are randomly in sync
I didn't plan for this
the weather has it's own mind
and my mind woke from a dreamy sleep
only to realized it didn't really
wake up...that is...it stayed
and now the fog encompasses
the world around me
Fog to the left of me, Fog
to the right, and Fog on top
It's a Foggy Top kinda morning
and I will have to keep my eyes open
for a clearing because I'll never hear it coming

trying to get the body and mind in gear
but i just hear this grinding down low
inside my head somewhere, 'cause the ears
don't work so well, and I can't seem to sync it
all up, like I used to in days of yore
and nuthin' to do but push back....resist
these forces that are trying to make you
Not You
I won't make it easy on them
I will eat well, and take my vitamins
and play in the woods and paint my paintings
as they come to me in dreamlike visions
where i am awake and see what I'm going to try
to accomplish with paint mixed and ready
to lay on top on my sketch which also came to me
the same way, by way of magic
what else could it be......things come to me
much like my days of poetry, long ago
when I would write 12 poems in a row as fast as one
can move a pen......but as the words have slowed down
the visions have gotten brighter
and I assume wireman of the stars is helping
and dino of the milky way are in caHOOTS

brighter visions and 3.5 glasses
unfocused or/and multifocused
can't tell sometimes the difference...
Wireman of the chinese highlands,
Jimbo of the crazy horses (&cats!)
Lrod of the superpoweredhats
Zlatko of the beautiful eyes
Dino of the invisible seas and seats
sure helping us
and still sharing this energetic stars!

oatmeal this morning
apples, raisins, chia seeds, walnuts
I'm daydreaming of the woods
of squirrelly brethren and avian parishioners
the anticipation is nearly as good
as the real thing, it's the ritual of devotion
it is a calling of sorts , but i wont proselytize,
I'll just lace up my boots when the time comes
grab my backpack and fire up the engine

No...I'm not talking about the car

oh wireman of the stars
and dino of the milky way
where is jack ?
look over him, see that he is comfortable
I hope he is convalescing
and will return to his fascinating posts
he is a long-time contributor
and he was dedicated to our mission
so fellow poets
keep him safe and pain free
and send him our way sometime soon

so jacks of all trades
come back

drifting in then out
... a Day of a Million Naps
I did accomplish some business
this morning when the coffee had muscle
but forget simple reading
it only transforms into simple sleeping
and then I move a bit around the room
wash a couple dishes, pick up the newspaper
and i find myself waking up again
so I go to my computer and look at art
and wake up with a sore neck, my face
inches from the keyboard....and so
I will try to exercise, perhaps this will produce
something other than daydreams
but ya know... daydreams can be pretty wonderful

daydreams of dreaming
yoga nidra for being alert
nodding off into reverie

some days the battery's just gotta recharge
the Ambition gauge is on the peg
the coffee wears off in an hour
you think of all the things that need doing
the things you should be doing
and of how to justify
not doing them...
maybe I should wait for a sunny day
to do the laundry
(so I can dry it on the line)
maybe this wouldn't be the time
to start my taxes
(there might still be statements on the way)
maybe I should check out the latest YT vids
from Numberphile
from Sybermath
from PBS Eons or Food Wishes or Vet Ranch...
...
or maybe I'll just sit & surf...
or maybe just try to take a nap...

oh my wireman of the stars
and dino of the miky way
what can yo tell us from your lofty perches
can you see a bright future
beyond pandemic foibles, a place
where people gather without worrying
about their neighbors , you must
have a better view than I
I haven't seen a human in 10 days
up close I mean, a few in the distance
and my new hearing aids are ready
for a test run through the language
I am most comfortable with, but I continue
to try to teach an old dog new tricks
I am very interested in American Sign Language
but it's difficult when your hands are arthritic
and your fingers simply refuse to bend to the will
of the signs, but maybe there are other signs I can learn
natural signs among the animals and plants i love to mingle with
I am ready for whatever comes my way
I have an ocean of possibilities ahead in the art world
rivers and lakes to see before I check out
streams of love, and waterfalls of hope
and reservoirs of good intentions

the perpetual jam
originated by the one and only wireman
must go on
so I do hope at some point we gain a few new members
to carry on his legacy
I wonder if there is a way to recruit
perhaps suggesting Studio 8
to young poetry-minded acquaintances
I don't know
I'm not unhappy here with my long standing friends
but it would be nice to think
this will all go on forever
