“Strange Combinations” by Patrick John Timothy Connors

Sweet potato french fries

In salty pub gravy

Things we long and live for

And ponder while we wonder

What everyone thinks of us

Love

Do they want me – am I attractive

I’ve had a rough week

I may not be at my best

Belonging

Me and my friend; my guy

Is not much of a wingman

Especially after a couple beers –

He tries too hard.

Identity

Hi; what’s your name?

I leave my wingman with a beer,

A nod, and a fistbump

To fend for himself…

Honeysuckle and bitter

Prickle and smooth

Sensations denying description

Beg description

Ends that are not ends

Beginnings which are

Continuations

As we become

Together

In spite of our selves
