wife snores

Posted to Action Poetry

she likes to play out and act her final moment death
and daily she asks while admonishing me
finger to my neck
if you outlive me, jay, i will come back to haunt you
winking back i sing, o honey!
the numbers do not lie
american men
by average
leave their women young at 87
the average life span
of american men
being somewhere
between 23 and 67
gah! and ha ha foo foo foo
i am somewhere in between

i wink to mer and say
it is me who will fly to
your hummingbird feeder
yeah, me the silly skinny
bird in winter
fighting with the squirrells
chirping at the cats
beaking at your window
let me in
let me in
it is little jaybird
your little hoto jito
