Macho

DSC08411Mixed Media Retablo  “Macho” by Judy Dykstra-Brown

Macho

That stern detective, hewn from stone,
is a kid when he’s alone.
Looks at cartoons, lives on snacks—
bubble gum and Cracker Jacks.

Just goes to show you cannot tell
what delusions you must dispel
to find the truth of those you know.
You must look at what’s below.

 

Prompts today are hewn, detective, jack and snack.

    The hobbies of those who are new friends can be amazingly unusual. There is a 65+ year old in one of my groups that is still adding to his marble collection. (Yes, I made the ‘losing your marble” joke as I got to know him better.)
