My new book “Midlife Solo” is now available.

What I bought second hand last week

Yes, a walker thingie –

a light-weight trainer machine,

so that I can watch Jon Stewart and sweat
at the same time. At least, that’s the plan …

Fabulous jewel. Real diamonds, or close. $4.
And – Scenes from a writer’s life.
For your edification: these are old drafts of the memoir, about four year’s worth.
A whole B. C. forest of words, and I’m still
Keep on keepin’ on.
