In its January and February 2017 issues, the Milpitas Post published my poems “Two Earrings”,

“Glitter”, and “Six-Year-Old” (in its 1/6/17 issue on page 22), “Mistletoe” (in its 1/13/17 issue on page 24),
“Dreidel”, “Album Cover”, “Pause”, “Deciding”, and “Cookie Cutter” (in its 1/20/17 issue on page 23), “MLKJ” and
“Receipt” (in its 1/27/17 issue on page 23), “On the Phone”, “Igloo” and “Cereal Taste Test” (in its 2/3/17 issue
on page 26), and “Laser Printer”, “So”, “Yawn”, “Toothpaste”, “Open Umbrella”, “Negative Reaction”, “Curve Effect of Rain”,
“Checkout Counter”, and “Rain” (in its 2/10/17 issue on page 23).

Also, some of these poems (and in some of these issues) can be found with more poems from the Peaceful Poets group that I moderate and proofread for.

Someone was staring and smiling at the end of a golf club;

it was really a selfie stick to help photograph one’s mug.
A chipped screenshot of a mug would be a flub.

A hula dancer tried to seduce me; I can’t share some details since they’re too juicy…

I had to decline her offer despite her bribes
(because she already had a boyfriend and he collects knives).

A zip-line that borders places with different ZIP Codes is a ZIP Code line.

It could be used to deliver mail (when one is inclined).

At night, a raccoon clings onto a tree; after that it might go on a spree.

Its eyes glow like it could shoot lasers.
Like a bandit, it’s capable of capers.
To a tree, a raccoon gives a squeeze.
At least that tree cannot get rabies.

In a store, a couple is making out and enjoying their time.

These two customers are at aisle sixty-nine.
