Wolves howl to others

Warning, communicating

Moon makes no difference

 

Bloodhounds, beagles, howl

The same way that the wolves do

For different reasons

Whenever I exercise, I feel like I’m going to die.

Swimming laps is fun to do, try them, you might like them too.

Running around the track at school, made me feel like such a fool.

I would go once around, then you’d see me, laying on the ground.

Track and field was not my thing, I’d prefer to sit and sing.

When I’m told to exercise, always I ask, can I improvise.

Sunday Afternoon Drive

One of the many views from Griffith Park

It was Sunday and I was out for a drive with my parents on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon in California heading to Griffith Park.

We happened upon a traffic jam, not unusual for Los Angeles, and there was a car beside us with several young guys looking over at me in the backseat.

Our windows were down, and I heard one of the guys say, wow check her out. The next comment was, ya, but look what she’s going to look like when she’s older.

I had hoped that my stepmother who was a large woman had not heard this comment as I’m sure it would have made her feel bad.

I can remember thinking, yes but we’re not blood-related.
