Second Thoughts About Stoogism


File:Palm tree and sun in smoke SoCal 2007.jpg

Even my resilience is limited

The crashing silence of the palm trees

The rubber ball is on its
Eight thousandth bounce
The logic of elasticity
Is growing blurred

It is 5:19 A.M.

I have a feeling
Like being X-rayed
In the privacy of my house

Very nicely compiled Tom ..

I liked

The logic of elasticity
is getting blurred very much.

Keep writing ..
I like reading you.

These Stoogism poems were written some time back while living in Southern California, a place which seems (or seemed to me anyway) to blur all forms of logic...

Thanks, I like reading you too.
