    A day late and more than a dollar short!
    That, my friend - -
    Is what plastic is for! !

    Had to laugh about this....even though it has sad overtones. Have you ever looked at those folks in Denny's on holidays...and wondered what their story was - - why they are alone? Sad! (Report) Reply

    Anything in the frig, that wasn't on the health Dept.'s list...or C.D.C's? Then, you definitely were caught. the picture you've painted is real to the core. I've gotten used to baloney sandwiches on Christmas Day. Hey, can of cranberry sauce, and you're there. Job extra well done in this one! ! ! xxElysabeth (Report) Reply

    I love Denny's Southwestern burger! That's good haha. I liked your storytelling and your vivid descripiton; 'drowned my resolve under icy stars' was a well written line. Good poem! Top marks!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
