Poem #19 -- Life

LIFE

the price of gasoline
pistachio ice cream

colonoscopies
bunches of daisies

stages of cancer
a friend with the answer

haze in the sky
pecan pie

graffiti
confetti

    Adore this one, Mary Lee.

    Great images come to mind (okay, maybe not the colonscopy, but that's life for sure.)
