LOT

PARKINGLOT

LOT

A whole row
of parking
marked SMALL CAR ONLY

spaces saved for the
skinny
sleek
petite
slender

Wide fenders
real thick with American steel
barely fit

Don’t you dare park there
jam your junk in the trunk
into spaces meant
for micro-vehicles

All that cargo room
crammed with nothing much
loaded up with leisure and greed

Take your suburban self elsewhere
and keep your big-assed SUV off this
sliver of city asphalt

This is reserved
for small cars only
the slimmer models
leaner bodies
the ones who sip fuel
and slip through streets
so breezily

So get on down the road
find another lot
maybe at that First Baptist Church
where the big-bodied
corn-fed cars
congregate

Breakfast of Champions (February 2015)

THINMINTS

Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s done this, this time of year…

 

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS

A spinach/egg white omelet
beats a plate of eggs and bacon.

If a healthy breakfast’s what you want,
that’s what you should be makin.’

This morning, though, I’m going for broke —
so here’s the meal I’ve chosen:

A dozen yummy Thin Mints,
oh-so-fabulously frozen.
