She was a bored certified physiologist
I was just bored watching cartoons
searching for the meaning of life
after years of studying flowers grow
which I had on my bucket list.
Each week, over coffee, we discussed
cracks in my foundation
she offered encouragement
at a cost I could have spent
on a roulette table spin
hoping to win.
So I’ve decided to discontinue
seeking higher power advice
return to my roots of insanity
start watching old westerns, twice
and keep flowers as a backup.
