Past three in the morning in the arms of love
I wake up after dozing off in my folding chair
the Milky Way lights cross over the sky above
the Teakettle in Sagittarius pours for all to share
I call out to you over there far across the sea
no cell phone coverage here I have none anyway
separated for a long time still friends you and me
you won’t stop working work gets harder every day
wish you were here in this Pacific sea island world
you still want to make more money and higher pay
oblivious to relaxation underneath stars unfurled
now thinking of you in the dawning of a new day
some use a rainy day woman, blunts, or spliffs
for loneliness. For me its starry nights on sea cliffs.
“Rainy day woman” is a nickname for a marijuana cigarette, a “blunt” is a hollowed-out cigar filled with marijuana, and a “spliff” is a smaller marijuana joint.
Feeling Old and Sick? Some Aging Tricks

we had just lost our oldest brother so this news was bad
then some age old tricks (pardon the pun) came to my head
inexpensive, healthy, and fun ways to deal with being sad.
Go into deep denial of your physical problems every day
find out, if you have it, how to maximize health insurance
drink more water, get down on your knees and pray, pray
cut out fried foods and keep walking daily for endurance.
Try herbal and folk remedies that won’t make you sick.
accept a 50% diagnosis about what two doctors may say
stay away from bragging cure all remedies fast and quick
listen to and look at what your body is telling you today
When everybody around you about their health is crying
give common sense a chance don’t blame yourself for trying
