I AM working on a new poem, & hope to have it ready for the next post, hopefully tomorrow, but, more likely on Monday. In the meantime, please enjoy this treatise from 2013, which meanders around the head I wore at the time rather extensively…. I’ll be back with some fresh thoughts as soon as I can pull it together… See ya, ffolkes.
