Mr. Trebek , “What collects at the bottom of toasters?”
(OctaTimbre in syllable count)

They multiply like coat hangers,
Mold on leftovers in the frig,
Or dust bunnies under the bed.
Sometimes though they are just little
Trails that the birds end up eating
So you can’t find your way out of
An enchanted forest or a
Foggy bit of information
That you need – it is right at the
Tip of your tongue; that is ‘fine crumbs’.

‘fore’ warned!

paved path for golf carts
do not make good walking trails
unless you play golf

though there are a few times that
the cart may ride on the grass

the public ought to
find paths where ‘Fore’ needn’t be
a warning to hear

Note: not all the paved cart paths are connected.

odd ditty

odd ditty?

shedding bark, they do that naturally
some of the trees that I have seen
here on the trails between the
neighborhoods…that are
divided by highways

you can only get across

those roads
occasionally and you will
not see some of them, the older
trees – if you miss those hidden trails
that exist; which weave under bridges
and around fenced school yards
that have some attempted
green space

something new to learn

by highways that divide
the fences that hide the back
yards of those secluded neighborhoods
that I have walked here and there are trees
that naturally shed in stripes their bark, seasonally
