I didn't know
your a poet too...
I liked this

I talked about my son
to you on another board

he called me to ask
if my sister had arrived
on a visit of a few days
no, not yet I said
but maybe tomorrow
he said "oh didn't she
because I took a shower
and shaved to pay a visit
just to see her"

my sis was kinda second
mom for him during many
a summer, when he stayed
at her countryside farm
playing with their cats,
and once shaving the oldest cat's whiskers
with a sax...

and when he played his drums
in their garage, a neighbour
phoned them asking:
"I wonder if you, Pete,
started mending the tin roof
of your biggest barn...?"
