Tea, and a pencil. As I write.
In the back yard, a selfie of me and the mirror moon.
When Neil's not trying to be funny, he makes me laugh.
I gotta break the 4AM  to sleep habit.
Burning the candle at both ends
means the middle's in danger.
I want to live in another country:
Costa Rica, Portugal, Spain, Greece.
I want to run away from home.
Never been kissed under the fireworks.
Not even on the 4th of July.
Most of my exes are friends. They know me best.
The last time I cried was yesterday.
Yesterday is no better than today. Because POTUS
I've managed to live entire decades without TV.
Always something on the horizon to fret over.
I already have the job I dreamed I'd have, writing.
Am I a bad influence? On what? The weather?
Nope, not tagging anyone.
 Besides, they're adults.
They know what to do.


1) Your real name: Maureen
2)Your soap opera name (middle name and street you live on): Viola MacArthur

They called me Maureen whenever I was in trouble.
But I was really a drama queen, Viola Barranca.
In deep space, I was known as the Hurvien.
My friends called me the Hurleybird.
Purple Plaid Mousepad, not exactly superhero material,
but the pen is mightier than the sword.
I'm Black Winky when I'm feeling a bit Goth-icky
Just don't call me Lil' Cookie, the rapper.
You young whippersnapper.

1. I watched the moon landing from a bar before I was 21.
2. I either passed or failed the electric acid Koolaid test.
3. At the Human Be-In Timothy Leary gave my mom a hug.
4. I climbed the tallest mountain in the continental United States
5. I once swam with penguins. Or rather, I was buzzed by one.
6. I shook Bob Dylan's hand. And didn't do the dishes for a month.
7. I shook Joan Baez's hand and Eric Idle's hand in the same day,
and Robin Williams gave me a sweaty long-lost hug after his performance.
8. The inside of Carlos Santana's Mercedes, fawn leather seats,
he was wearing his white drawstring pants down low enough for me to be nervous,
when I was hitching a ride to school.
9. I went up Half Dome twice. Third time's not gonna happen.
10. A bear once slept on me while I was camping.
11. Van Morrison once had to give me a ride home because his mother told him to.
