Friday Night Again

What are we to do this Friday night?
A book? A film?
A quiet meal with friends?
An evening out?
A date? A dance? A drink?
A rendez-vous?
What a dilemma that would be,
if we did not have enough Fridays left
to do all that and more,
and not feel too sorry about our choice,
at least not until next Friday,
when we can choose again.
Yes, one of the great things about life
is that there is going to be a next Friday
for a long time from now on,
for you, for me, for most of us, at least.
And when we finally run out of Friday nights,
we may not know it until it’s too late
to regret not having done
what we no longer want to do.


This Is How My Writing Should Be Read (Ideally)

Beauty of a Different Kind

What is normal and what’s not
depends a lot on who you ask.
But what a pity it would be
if some women did not forget
What a pity it would be
if hair hid this photograph
from me.
