To the G-Man – Friday Flash 55


Re Tempus Fu(Mr.G)it- (It’s Latin, so it’s okay!)

Why does time have to march
even in March?

Why can’t we keep the spring

Our hips stay
hip?  Our black clothing only
mean coolness?
Our wrinkles lipsynch
how oooh we are laid-back,
our lovehandles
that we
are love-

And why, oh why,
are our poems not everlastingly


55 for the G-Man!  This is his second-to-last week of hosting Friday Flash 55.  He’s had a long and honorable run and needs to concentrate on his Harley–best to him always.

PS – the photo is outside a plane window.  Yes, I know planes don’t march!  But they do something else that time does — fly!

    ha. we need more kick ass poems
    and life
    we all succumb
    to it eventually

    One door shuts, another door opens.
    You might be sad now, but in a month, I’ll just be a distant memory!
    Just teasing, I’ll still be around, just not hosting…:-)

    Have a Kick Ass Week End

    Very smart and apropos–at least for me! And kickass to boot (in a manner of speaking)…forgive the brevity…I’m using my phone.

    Why indeed? But Harleys must take precedence, so I guess we’ll muddle through.
