AFTER THE THRILL

 

DSCN0300

Long ago
Love affairs
Thrills departed
Some, barely started
Rumpled, forlorn, forgotten
Behemoth, stone-age electronics
Temporary dog fence
No longer made sense
Things bought for five bucks
Supposed to work–never did
Clothes from the eighties
When girls had big hair, and
Were Clueless in Beverly Hills
My first guitar with broken strings
Propped up with the other things
Billy Bass, sass and crass
Pet rock, singing bird clock
Perhaps, I’m too sentimental
Inanimate objects can’t think or talk
Mood ring get in line–take a walk
