Cascade mountainsI should probably leave the following out of any poems left to write.

 

Okay, for a year, I’ll leave out the following so that I can begin anew, think fresh thoughts, create something special.

 

Okay, just one poem. One poem without the following:

 

pigeons roosting on the roof

violins

lips

mountains in the distance

moons (crescent, full, dinner-plat, slivers, simple, blue, harvest, beautiful et al)

horizons

apples

long and slow

any named plant from the Pacific Northwest

love

mandolins

foods I’ve chopped, sliced or cooked

 

Forget it.
