I would not be concerned
what to wear toward
one big show
my re-buttoned 49 YO
Sargent Pepper epaulette*
*An ornamental shoulder piece on an item of clothing, especially on the coat or jacket of a military uniform
over my cool John Lennon Portrait T
my County Zoo green-billed cap
remembering Agnew
podium pounding
and how the black-haired
beauty and me
had to flee
mounted police
swinging sticks
nor awake in the Rustbelt
in the morning I go
Nor re-up the paper route
before the boy disappeared
how far off
that gin mill on Lake Madonna
how's it go
Lake Mendota, Dane County Fishing Reports and Discussions
neither worry about
one more time:
Cenny's Cardboard
Car bands, over the hill
gypsies Hey
I salute
Nero rimes so good with
Or engage cap lady
to custom fit my ONLefty
ragged shirt, A kool kap

(more later)
John Perry Barlow,
won't be seen
we'll be free
won't we?

Newport to New Haven! People in motion. (bluebird has ascended)!

What? That I should invest 20 more minutes to locate my collegiate gonzoesque Mayor Soglin interview ??.

"The morning glory flower is a flower of duality. The Victorian meaning of morning glory is either love or mortality or love in vain."  

In the multiverse of my mind I often think of what might have been.

This gave me lots to think about.

Morning glory stories lay a petal path to and from good medicine.

Delete me all you like, dear j.p., I’ll still cook you up a plate of eggs and bacon, mea culpa cuppa coffee, milk, sugar ~

The kids are making a dent. The question is how deep? how much real change will happen? I suppose the real question is how much change does america really want? How hard are we willing to push for it? 

There have been a number of particularly crazy shooting events that come to my mind - like the mass shooting in a movie theater AND the single shooting where a guy shot some poor shlub who was checking with his babysitter BEFORE the movie had even started.. Its as if people think they have a right to shoot anyone who annoys them. Or they hate something in their life - so go get the guns and shoot the shit out of a bunch of people who happen to be handy. 

I don't get this. I'm really lost. This lack of common sense - " to stop a bad guy with a gun takes a good guy with a gun."

Carpe diem Foolish Monkey!  Often I wish Alex Trebec were POTUS. He's got all the right answers!

I've been thinking lately of the call not to vote for anyone who has taken money from the NRA.  I can see some conflicts that will require making a judgement call, like a Democrat who took money in the past running against a Republican "Freedom Caucus" type who has never run for office and has not taken money from the NRA, YET.  For the first time I may be a single issue voter this go round.  Still, that alternative would give me pause.

I like the kid who wants to change the name of the AR-15 to a Marco Rubio because both are so easily bought.

Sorry, J.P., we're getting away from morning glories.

BTW, it at least used to be illegal to plant morning glories in Arizona because they like to grow all over crops.
