Lazy Sculpting

Is it possible to purchase a best shirt
in a resale shop?

I looked at the tulips too late
to appreciate my four percent Dutch heritage.

Imagine the carnage
if autumn leaves fell like guillotines.

My surname is a place name
of a land I never visited.

Famous musicians should busk once a week
to keep in touch with people who can spare change.

Your tongue never cared for the taste
of a verb’s proper tense.

After so many years I realize my sense of home
is contained in being warm and dry with a full tummy.

My thirty-plus years writing poetry never made me famous
but flattened my ass from long hours in a chair.
