Appreciation Comes from Absence

Working out,
Peanuts, and
Dwight Yoakum
Singing some Bakersfield inspired anthems
Make the first sunny Sunday in awhile
Well worth the effort
Of running with my mates,
Hiking with my dog,
Riding all alone, and
Doing the same with a four-pack,
The first since Christmas,
The last until Sea Isle
Because I had to get them in
Before baseball got cranked up
In the most local way
And just because
Things have been going too well
And it’s nice to sabotage things
With a little milk from the dragon.

Sure beats listening to the hack,
Cough, and
From the Spittle Bug
This morning.
