Happy birthday to my little sister

40 years ago today, my little sister was born. She was the bane of my existence when we were growing up. She was annoying, loud, violent…She used to grab me by my hair and smash my face into the floor. She stabbed me on more than one occasion! She also used to think she was a cat named “Henrietta”, after the cat puppet from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. She’s not quite as bad now. The most offensive thing about her these days is her constant need to watch boring home decorating shows. She’s grown up a lot in these 40 years. Well, not vertically (Rim shot!), but she’ll always be my little sister. Whether I like it or not. Happy 40th birthday, Da. Happy 40th birthday, Fofo. Happy 40th birthday, Jennifer. Happy 40th birthday, little sister.

Meatless Meat

Wretched meatless “meat” I smell

Cooking a floor below,

I can’t escape your malodorous fume,

Though I wish it so.

 

What lies within your ingredients list?

A grain-filled or soybean curd?

What explains your strong resemblance

To a fire-ignited turd?

 

To consume you is unnatural,

For flesh makes sausage complete.

If God wanted us not to eat animals,

They’d not be full of meat.

I Shouldn’t

I shouldn’t feel a tremble

If you gently brush my arm.

There’s no reason that your slightest touch

Should cause me such alarm.

 

The only explanation

That is possible, I fear,

I’m falling deep in love with you,

And long to have you near.

 

My glances have grown longer,

And now qualify as stares.

I extend our conversations,

‘Cause my heart for you despairs.

 

I think of silly problems

So I’ll have to contact you.

You may have noticed lately

There have been more than a few.

 

I lose my concentration

And can hardly get work done,

I’m up late thinking of us;

How we’d be in the long run.

 

I couldn’t see this coming.

I never wanted it to be.

But it’s useless and I’m hopeless,

I only hope that you’ll agree.

Fantasies of You

I told you of unspeakable things

That I fantasized we did.

You said that it was best for me

To keep those fantasies hid.

 

So now I keep them to myself

Because you’re not with me,

And think about you many nights,

In lurid fantasy.

 

The time will never come when

These fantasies might come true,

So I will keep in secret

All my fantasies of you.

Sitting with You

We sat beside each other

On a bench, and barely touched.

At that moment there was no place

That I wanted to be as much.

I’m Never Happier

I’m never happier

Than when I’m with you.

Though you find it odd,

It is completely true.

 

Whether it’s dinner,

A movie, or other,

I’d rather be with you,

And not with another.

 

You don’t feel the same.

That’s a known fact.

And me telling you this

Lacks the minimum tact.

 

But I’ve found my bliss,

And it’s right by your side.

My feelings are strong,

Too strong to hide.
