JOHN’S POWER DRINK

 

1 banana

4 scoops of blueberries

2 scoops of raspberries

½ a small apple

¼ cup of whey

3 cups of soy milk (vanilla) flavor

 

in blender for three minutes

 

Take one big cup prior to work out ( 1 hour weights and exercise or 20 kms. on your bike) so your stomach has something to work on and one cup after the workout and shower. Have the rest in the fridge for snacking on during the day

GETTING LUCKY, BUM WAD and NOSE MINING

GETTING LUCKY, BUM WAD and NOSE MINING

 

watching the ads on TV

It’s amazing what you will see

A sweet young thing

announces she needs an oil change

in my salad days

wink, wink, nudge nudge

that was about getting lucky

the man in the space asks where she heard about him

more wink, wink, nudge , nudge

and with a smile

the sweet young thing can rest assured

she is gonna get f__ked

by a major corporation

a friend tells me

his last argument

with his feminine roommate

was about who was going to pick up fresh

bum wad

at the same time he was

nose mining

so I said I hoped

he hadn’t run out of bum wad

and had washed his hands

loud laughter all around

ODDS AND ENDS

ODDS AND ENDS

 

obeying the Lord of Small Tasks

bed made, dishes done, trash taken out,

shaved , s..t showered and shampooed

coffee at the clubhouse busy busy mood

something in the melancholy

took the names and numbers

of dead friends off my phone directory

had a momentary sense of loss but that’s another story

tomorrow its shopping for my lauder

and now its full stop

and make some feeble excuse and try to  make some amends

for classifying long dead friends among the

odds and ends

“WTF”!

Image

 W,T,F!

suddenly iTunes wouldn’t open

and the app store app crashed

W,T,F! is that all about?

its another drizzle day

and my lazy gene is activated

and even this tome

seems like it is too much

a blah day if there ever was one

got my sound track on

but it only plays

the tunes I don’t like

full stop

knock, knock, knocking

on heavens door

the day will continue to suck

so

W,T,F.

ANOTHER CAN’T SLEEP NIGHT

Image

 

ANOHER CAN’T SLEEP NIGHT

 

Santana and muddy Waters on the sound track

Jimi Hendricks “catfish blues”

wailing on his axe like a lover at the max

a Muddy Waters cover

Its blues guitar night

in the early am

head phones on

so the neighbors can catch some zzzs

the first coffee of the day

helps to keep my personal blues at bay

and I wonder at friends

and where their days have been

feeling cool like any ordinary fool

and music is the tool

that puts me in this place

and replaces a frown for a smile on this face

digging out my Muddy7 Waters picture

to dress this poem

the new blog site doesn’t allow mps3

or any music as far as I can see

so you will have to listen to WWOZ

right now to get into my space

but at this time in the morning

perhaps your bed is the appropriate place

THE GLOVE

Image

 


THE GLOVE

 

writing this one from scratch

a phone call interrupts

someone I don’t know

has my number

 

a glove abandoned in the courtyard

seemingly waiting for the ride

to the world of lost socks, keys and umbrellas

and silly looks from silly fellas

 

the poem was half formed in my mind

when the dipshit phoning distracted

now all the lines I had imagined

have from my memory been subtracted

 

chill, for Christ sakes

cause what a difference a sunny day makes

a small change of attitude

is all it takes

 

take the circumstance of someone’s

lost glove

as inspiration

from above
