You Again

You again,
returned after
so many years,
floating with me
in kayaks on the lake,
letting me relax,
letting me talk
    and be myself,
a true friend,
a true friendship,
in a world
    that needs them badly.

Gandalf Gets Married

In a basement somewhere...

"A great evil
is rising again
in the south,
and we must..."

Did you take out
the garbage yet?!"

"The garbage
must wait!
There is a
great evil..."

"Great evil?!
Are your
little friends
visiting again?
The hairy ones?"

"They're called Hobbits!
And they're our
only hope!"

"Yeah, yeah.
Just take out
the damn garbage.
Evil can wait."

"Ok... Fine!...
Sorry Frodo,
I've got to go.
Maybe we could
get together
another day.
If I don't take
the garbage out
I won't get
any pussy

Little girls
playing in the dirt,
wiping their hands
on their dresses.

Everything else
is a sophisticated mask.

Some Days

Some days
all you need are
some friends
and some ocean waves
to jump in
