STUBBY LITTLE TRUFFLE

Tepid Stupid
I step into No now
Late
Selfish -not enough
I’m sure-
Grandiose believing
I had something to offer
Some use
Some purpose
Other than fodder
for kicking
by those too cynical
to believe
Everyone is worthwhile

I leave the door unlocked
I will
laugh at my dogs
Cheer ManUnited in soccer
Shudder when Pete Rose
talks of baseball
Cook spaghetti stale but filling
for homeless drunks
Without loving mothers
Soft skin
Daffodil-scented hair
I’ve no illusions
about anyone
coming to my door
In search of Me
amidst dirt ruin and decay
as valuable sweet precious
Obscure a treasure
As any stubby little truffle
