Naked

As I leave therapy, the truck drives lightly
Past dark bare mid-fall trees between traffic
lanes standing strikingly proud at noon day
in the cool fall sun, there! a denuded maple,
leafless elm, two green pine, don’t look dead
dejected embarrassed for all foliage’s failings
in their apparently unabashed and full nudity

Charlie Brown

A kite in the tree
the crab apple tree
Want to get it down
the kite is stuck
and you only shrug
Say “Let the dog in”

This is your life
Charlie Brown

A Monarch in the tree
the kite is a Monarch
Stuck in the tree
In the crab apple tree
Still you only shrug
Say, “Let the dog in”

This is your life
Charlie Brown

Look at that kite
Up in the tree
This is important
The kite stuck in the tree
Again you only shrug
Say “Let the dog in”

This is your life
Charlie Brown

But Chuck is stuck
Up on a tree
He is no Monarch, no kite
in the crab apple tree
Finally you only shrug
Say, “Let the dog in”

This is your life
Charlie Brown.

A kite in the tree
the crab apple tree
Want to get it done
The kite is stuck
Finally, you shrug
Say, “Let the dog in”

Kite — A Poem about Feeling Hopelessly Stuck

A kite in the tree
the crab apple tree
Want to get it down
the kite is stuck
and you only shrug

A Monarch in the tree
the kite is a Monarch
Stuck in the tree
In the crab apple tree
Still you only shrug
Say, “Let the dog in”

This is your life

Look at that kite
Up in the tree
This is important
The kite stuck in the tree
Again you only shrug
Say “Let the dog in”

This is your life

But Chuck is stuck
Up on a tree
He is no Monarch, no kite
in the crab apple tree
Finally you only shrug
Say, “Let the dog in”

A kite in the tree
the crab apple tree
Want to get it done
The kite is stuck
Finally, you shrug
Say, “Let the dog in”
