Why Do We Take The Joker Out of The Deck? (Poem)

Why do we take the joker out of the deck? The comedian knows more than the journalist, and the Jester was the king’s adviser.

Reading A Book Alone In The Redwood Forrest, a poem

Reading a book alone in the Redwood Forrest On the observational scale, I do sit here in the redwoods in lotus pose, with a copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance on a stack of logs next to me.
