2012 Poem-a-day April 1st

Here we go again!! crazy me, crazy, crazy me.  April 1st Day one:

hey dave

It’s been too many dead ringers since
serious words puddled in my throat
seeking your ear way north of Richmond
while I fretted about whether spilling
selected personal details down your shirt
makes sense.

Everything important starts
in common circumstance, then slips slopes
to land seat-first in a steady boat-
the point being thinking about
just talking with you
grounds me most days.
