The Covid Cafe #18 

Scared Saturday Shopping #3 


We didn’t do lunch


before they closed.

knowing this was a time made for panic

made for manic panic.



Our route follows herein or therein or

someplace in or out,

‘Twas that kind of day.

Still a Saturday.


we went to friends who live in

Wallingford, code name Wally’s World by some,

to drop off some items we

bought for them,

some frozen vegetarians,

for what are friends for

if you can’t do for them

when needed

and verse visa. 

They live in a location where

I only get lost leaving, anymore,

at least in daytime.

Not sure

when that changes.



Feed and Seed


before they




Birdfeed being essential to our chickens,

who provide us with lovely eggs. 

We also got strawed,

along with the birdseed and

the dreaded pine.

and gave the girl $2

for her lifting

as I always do

as I always do,

whether or not she’s a girl.
