Polka Dot Something Unspeakable


took back the Spotted Cow; took back the ugly water shoes! Decided I would rather not get into water where other bodies have been or urniated!

Cop out? Big time!

The Spotted Cow

Bathing Suit

Posted in psychology | 5 Comments

55 years later

Purchasing a bathing suit when one cannot even get a hand in the cute ones, is like hunting for the lost ark. One looks in dark corners and underneath shelves searching for that one. You know the one that makes you look less like an elephant and more like a plump little hippo.

brought one home yesterday but lo the cleavage rather fell out; not very sexy, just kinda hanging out there

brought it back and said to the customer service guy whom I knew ” showed too much cleavage.”

he said, “nothing wrong with that.”

i gave him the evil eye and he gave me the refund

the search was on again…this time I found one with those leopard spots and kinda flowing in front

better, I thought and paid a really big price for those spots

home again to try on same…did not look lean and long like the leopard

just more like a spotted cow, just a degree better than the hippo

a keeper, I thought

i should show you the one from 55 years ago

but then I would be envious of me

i might mourn the loss of what was

and would never be again


all this for 

water aerobics!

Sticks and Stones


Red blood
Down the


Knowing nothing

Mixed with
Endless sorry

Turning slowly
Can you see
The knife
Not only
Stuck between
Shoulder blades
But also

The muscles

of the heart

No clue
Not one
That making
Choices would
The knife
To be
Honed to a
Fine shinning
Glint of steel
To slide
Into the body
