Fishy Breath
Forewarned

I just eat an entire

Tin of tuna

So please excuse me 

If my breath is fishy 

I really do

Brush my teeth

I promise

I haven't been

Sleeping around

With that famously unwashed trout 

Dirty Smelly Nelly

From Sesame Street

Punch & Judy

Cat Independence
Cats are amazing critters!
Of course, all cat lovers
are well aware of this;
so, it is not to you
whom I speak. But to
those less furry among-st
us—to those less inclined
to seek a warm lap and
shamelessly purr to the
heat and comfort...it is to
you whom...Read More

The Intelligence Of Tuna
There where the tuna sleep mighty
Wet as usual imprisoned in ocean
There are creatures above with poles
The oxygen nitrogen breathers 
The ones with limbs on their sides
With eyes facing front fashioned to hunt
Beings that live in the thin environment
Trying to take...Read More

Barely visible an angel drowns in a pileup of presents 

Fortunately wrappers and cards are bio-degradable

Each allocated their circumspect place for recycling

A kangaroo in dungarees hops hopefully 
	To win first prize in the Favs contest hot
		On the heels of an enlightening glow worm

Surely life is no competition but the stage lights
	Reverberates all the promising contenders
		Reincarnation oils the wheels of the jury

body laying atop a

Dawn, and my bed comes ashore,
dripping fog-laden fronds.
 
I feed my mind
manna of minced shark 
and Barracuda.
 
I dislike tuna,
so I make a tuna sandwich;
wet foaming waves,
aqueous globs of salty oils,
some mayo.  I must be waterlogged
by sea-dreams.

The sea calls me
 whispers in my ears,
the rise and fall of foaming waves
 waft the scent of salt tasted tears,
a haven released through time
 pounding surf, light, dark and dreams
  upon each sounding splashing wave.

Rise. Greet the ocean...Read More

Premium Member SWIM AWAY--
...Quietly commands the waters,
swiftly like a dead sailor;
Why does the tuna smell?
Small, stormy ships calmly command a warm, 
Dolphins laugh and chatter;
What happens and where is Charlie Tuna;

As he's eaten by an Alaskan bear;
If guilty, swim away...Read More

Premium Member Charlie Tuna

A few big Baracudas one day
had assaulted some fish “schools” at play.
Many fish bravely fought.
The most famous did not.
Charlie Tuna sped quickly away.

Charlie Tuna had been cowardly,
so the other fish asked him why he
swam away from the brawl.

Premium Member Cooking with Potatoes

So versatile is the potato.
It’s orange; it’s yellow; it’s white; it’s sweet.
It’s baked or boiled; it’s mashed or fried.
It’s served with poultry, with fish or with meat.

I love to cook, and I have for you
three recipes for potato dishes.
