2 short poems… on lying, and water

How Long the Nose, Pinocchios?

Richard Nixon 1973:
“People have got to know
whether or not their president is a crook.
Well, I’m not a crook.”

Trump’s spokeswoman 2017:
“I can definitely say the President is not a liar,
and I think it’s, frankly,
insulting that question would be asked.”

Koan

Watching raining water outside
While drinking water inside
Water here
Water there
Which is real?
Which one’s wet?

There, I’m up to date on the poem-a-day challenge for June with Mary E. Weems and Lady K. Poems are hard to come by this month.

From 1964-2008 I wrote 5-10 poems a year, with none at all from 1975-85, but once we returned in 2009 from living in 10 countries on 3 continents for 31 months, it jumped to 300+ a year. Take fotos and write poems… pretty much what I do these days.
