Fumbling Mumbling

Sunday wraps itself around summer fog
choir retired for 8 wks
traveling wilburys take charge and change faces
week to week

in a thinning population
i prepare in bathroom mirror – checking rooster and widow
wonder if there’ll be room in pew – then chuckle

‘how do you say this word Father?’
-say it how you want
‘where is everyone Father?’
-God is happy you are here

9 a.m is a helluva thing in the early morning hours

* Traveling Wilburys were a British-American supergroup consisting of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty.

* rooster and widow: nicknames for natural hair ‘styles’
