funny, grandchild, grandfather, grandmother, grandparents, grandson, love hurts,

I lost the remote in the living room.
My husband and I ran around looking and looking.
At first it was just the couch pillows, we were looking through.
An hour into it we had made what looks like a bon fire,
Tipping over couches, recliners, and such.
We broke a couple of tables.
Hey, wait, my husband reminded me.
Merlin was here today.
I called Merlin’s mommy, our daughter.
She said, "Oh, darn. We just found it. We thought it
was the one we lost a couple of weeks ago."
Merlin is our two year old grandson
Whom we apparently did not watch
As well as we should have the
5 hours he was here.
He is going to have to
Leave his hoodie and
His diapers at home.

love, missing you,
Well,I'll paint my face red
sharpen my spear
i am on the pad of war.
I will put foot to work here.
knowledge is my weapon.
A Chinese in Hong Kong make me mad
i will kick his ***.
I'll put on my hoodie
spears on my back
gladiators on my feet
head to the jungle.
Knowledge will be my shield.
This war i must win.
Any soldier that stand between
victory and i
their *** i will kick.
(Just a way for us to ease the pain of the distance and spaces between us!)

How proud am I to say your mine
you’ve grown up strong and true
From little boy with deep blue eyes
To lad with hair like … glue
You are my little hoodie
I would not change a thing
Your bright and kind and loving
You are my everything
With all that you achieve
Shows who you really are
All the steps you take my love
Will challenge you by far

me, love, me,
I like to wear hoodies.
They keep me warm.
I own no coat.
I almost always have a hoodie on
Sometimes even in the summer.
Hoodies make me feel better,
Its like a shield.
It makes me feel a little less insecure
It can also serve as a comfy pillow
I love hoodies.
I wear the hood to hide from humanity,
To go off into my own little world.
Hoodies are great.
They come in zip ups and pullovers.
Heavy and thin
And various colors.
I love hoodies.

emotions, feelings, girlfriend, love, poetry, relationship, soulmate,
A she now mine,
A she made time.
A she instincts cool,
A she minimizing blue.
A she daydreaming,
A she leaning still.
A she toying glee,
A she living free.
A she and her hoodie,
A she and her fringe.
A she reflecting smile,
A she reinventing style.
A she intentionally indifferent,
A she intimating significance.
A she simplifying stealing,
A she modernizing meaning.

10th grade, 11th grade, 12th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, 9th grade,
We do not allow any hoodies here, principal stated firmly.
My sixth graders pointed to me and laughed.
Second field trip of the month.
Of course I am the one wearing a clover green hoodie.
It is St. Patty’s day, for Peter’s sake!
Last week during our college field trip
Prissy registrar showed us a film
How to dress
How not to dress.
They actually had an X on
Socks with sandals.
It was a cold day,
And I love my Birkenstocks
With a bit of fluff.
The sixth graders who notice practically nothing
About me at all when I am trying to get their
Attention thought this was hilarious also.

the sad boy in a black hoodie
with his tiger striped arms
and heart in chains
has gone a little insane
he finds his face has been cracking
and a smile can be seen
how positively obscene
he shan't tell anyone why he is doing a little jig inside
it's his reputation at stake
he is a mosher, a gothic poster of disdain
he reads rimbaud and voltaire
and has really great hair
he is a trinket for guitar girls
and their fancy set-in curls
he knows his place
but for his smiling face
curse this joy
he was meant for eternal isolation
but the multiverse had other plans
another lover with his heart in her hands.
