Another Fine Day


Painting by Rick Mobbs

Another Fine Day

I felt better
as I walked
to Capitol hill
and my appointment
with David,
even though
I've not been paying
much heed
to my musical muse
lately.

Wait,
Did I tell you
about my waking dream
this morning?
No, I didn't.

I had a dream
this morning
that I had made peace
with someone
with whom I've had
a troubled relationship.

So the day
started out
nice
to begin with.
And was made
nicer
by a pint of stout.

David loves
my music,
Yeah,
so do I,
and so should you.
It's an entirely new type
of music.
I'm ahead of my time.

Number nine bus
home.
Cooked burgers
for dinner.

I posted the poem for friend, Doug. Love your blog site too, Rick. Taking my cue from Janet Leigh, I have used your wonderful paintings to illustrate several poems here on this site. For readers, please check out Rick Mobbs, paintings and poetry at MINE ENEMY GROWS OLDER, rickmobbs.wordpress.com
