today's questions and menus

I think of cereal boxes,
and Hardback coffee cafe.
So i look at the clock,
It's only 8:35am.
after getting on,
I sample New Year's eve feasts.
From Dongbei to Huangxi, Fujian, Hubei, Anhui, Sichuan. Yunnan, Henan, Shandong,
From Toronto to Baoding, TaiYuan, Beijing, Luxi, Macau, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.
We eat at Yan's Kitchen,
and Chew on Steamed Pork Slices.
No music,
But Carpri and BigLots bath tissues.
No red evenlopes,
but DMC French art from Hobby Lobby.

Many thanks for the perfect poet award from poetry rally week 80,
thanks to Maggie, for week 81, I nominate  Roessel Morton Celeste Nicholas Thornton 
and anjum wasim dar  ..

Happy Sunday!

sentenced to live

withdrawn from festival Autumn,
the day wears a big tall hat,
staring at some evergreens
with puzzled impression.
I assign
February's calendar with appointments:
dental visit, musical attendance worker...
a big red cross
on those killed moments
it is innocent to write life away,
lightening up weight
on bold honest amaryllis
in my neighbor's windowsill. sharing this with hyde park poetry rally week 80.
