learning skills in the outdoors

standing for prayer
the corner of the school desk
thrice daily finds me

flatness and hardness,
and the fluorescent lighting
heavenly verses

it’s tuesday morning
forgive us our trespasses
and I’m told to chant


horseback riding is
a wonderful thing for girls
it builds self-esteem

trail rides through the scrub
learning skills in the outdoors
Palomino flanks,

hard leather saddle
rolling, dazed, back and forth and
sweating in the heat


vaseline vignettes
of slick and dewy couples
raw, tanned romance, all

in rapid Spanish
the love in Latin Lover
is jacuzzi steam

all we can do is
laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh
and laugh, and watch them

So many spices
Chef tried a culinary masterpiece
Connoisseur’s nightmare

Add the right amount of spices. Always more is not right. :)
Hone thy skills,
Anubis the Philosomancer

Practice not
until you merely get it right,
practice earnestly
until you cannot get it wrong.

Hone thy skills,
not for those around you,
but for thyself,
then shall thy skills
be truly applicable.

If you have it.
You could go into any situation and talk your way out of it.
If you have it.
You make a good doctor/lawyer/negotiator.

If you have it.
You truly make a great correctional officer.
And mostly likely to avoid the trouble that comes to others.

Yes, yes people skills.
Which is a different form of body language that has its purpose.
We ALL have it.
Might not have the control skills to use it.

Yes, people skills.
The ability to leave someone feeling comfortable.

people will always like you better
cause I guess I'm not as clever

sometimes i paint
sometimes i write
sometimes i do what i think i might
sometimes i play piano
sometimes i play guitar
sometimes i steal from the cookie jar
sometimes i dance
sometimes i sing
sometimes i try to do everything

yes, i am a jack of all trades--
master of none, but better than
a master of one.

could be longer.

she said she loved me
never once moving her lips
it was in her eyes

If a woman tells you she feels ignored
                    drop your things and
          run to her.
If a man tells you he feels ignored
                  drop your everything
          and run away
