Morning Notes

One month I carried the Torah everywhere
 The next month the Koran, the New Testament
 The Dhamapada, Emily Dickinson…
 I would like to speak with my 20 year’s self
 Buy him a cup of tea
 The fact is
 In Russia once
 I bought a coat from a man
 Then gave it back
 Mike the farmer brought Christianity to Finland
 If you plan any razzmatazz with me you better not be a member of the Chamber of Commerce
 A friend said recently he wants to buy a samovar
 I told him I have one
 Then I remembered it was in my childhood
 That it’s long gone
 I told a stranger my family came to America for the juicy prunes
 I know so many poets who want to be celebrities
 If you can’t stand the neglect stay out of the aquarium
 I hid inside a piano once
