To the Head

A cup your
lips pressed---
Marred by
Mirrored hemispheres

Head drowning
in red
dyed seas

joy evades
tired eyes

print blurs
wide eyes

Place me

Where the red
cheek of the
Fallen Sun
Slow as a
First kiss

Birthday Thanks

"I started out younger
At most everything
All the riches and pleasures
What else could life bring?"

Gram Parsons, "Hickory Wind".

1. I would like to thank all my family and friends who called
and sent me cards or gifts today.

2. I would like to single out Oooolijay for sending me a wonderful
assortment of gifts--a "Poop My Pants" doll, a Mullett Air Freshener,
Jesus Fridge Magnet with "Whaaassuupp!" on it, a whoopee cushion
and a wonderful card.

3. Also my co-workers for singing to me and buying me cupcakes and
cookies today. I appreciate them daily because they make my job
a labor of love and enjoyable to do! My happiness at work on their backs--
and all of them so good natured---so funny and brilliant.

4. I am very lucky and happy to have a special loved one who will remain
nameless. She keeps me on the Royal Road.

5. All Honor to my close family members who have passed and yet still touch
my life daily. You are in my heart. Your voice in my ear-- in concert with my
conscience--most of the time.

6. Lastly, and certainly not least, all love to my parents beyond anything that
can be spoken for being so patient and loving. If they were not my parents
I would still be amazed at their goodness. A great blessing and honor to be
their son.

Sincerely and With Love,
