October 2019 Collage Poem: Don’t Pick up Hitchhikers
At least 80
If I see tomorrow
I shall see the sunrise
The settlements were fragile,
Yet at the same time, strong
A descent into madness –
Resurfacing at Thursday Club
I’m always happy to stop for a hitchhiker
Over the years I’ve had
Elvis Presley and Lord Lucan as passengers
But everyone thinks I’m lying
Slender Man, Enderman, carrying things,
Beings, daylight away
Grimm he said but not a fairy tale.
It’s true said Aesop
Israel is a real country.
Standing at the bus stop
Singing grim is good
The control of a spider snake
Worming our way to enlightenment
How did rag water find its way onto a train?
Taken away in an old car to find a red top.
