Old Wooden Spoon

the one you filed down to a spatula
remember it? It's still going strong
I'm back to rice and sautéed veg
so I see it a lot
4 decades is a long time
Hope you don't want it back
after all, you did take all my LPs
I haven't learned much
I still flounder over the
how are we going to make this work

is a hole
in the ground
with a cover
made of pages
torn from odd magazines
and stuck together
with self

Maybe you'll walk nearby
get interested
fall in

After chewing your meat
he'll grind
your bones
into a coarse powder
then hide you
and forget you

If you're free tonight
do come see me
