no one needs a ceiling fan on a breezeway. landscape
fabric only lasts a few weeks–black plastic works but sickens
mother earth slowly. flowers last longer when you change
water daily and trim stems. don’t eat other people’s
birthday cake–you’ll eat their spit. it’s okay not to shake
hands. don’t let someone else open the door for you if you
get there first. it’s okay–no, it’s good–to explain what is
polite for you–some just don’t know. there’s more, you
know, but not many read long anythings these days.
you expect me to end this list with a nugget of life’s
meaning, don’t you? but i’m still searching. hey, maybe
you know? sometimes i wonder what’s the point of life if
i’m always searching the why–not simply enjoying the now.
