Searching For Pinterest Ideas

What if you carried a jug of water on your shoulders?
were to hold a cloth over my biceps?

I could be your stoic statue
a Roman comic with shield or Greek mythos
Hercules and his lion

my lioness?

What if you were to dance
a french replacement with banana waistline
wishing for home and singing 12 weeks?

All these silly questions
with summer naked in our mouths
stolen lines and ideas
Canadian or world bound

my wife?

We lay here lazy on a Saturday
reading too much and fixing dinner ideas
I should drop into single word thoughts


a bird
a lion

a bear
a dove

a husband
his wife…..
