Evil David Abe
cheated us out of everything
he's doomed 
in the doorway
times about to fall

we trusted David Abe
a handshake and words enough
naive and blind
husband walks old fashioned
trusting his fellow man

a million stars
whirling and twirling
down the drain
sucked by darkness
into a cesspool of feculence

David Abe's hands
are covered with guilt
no admission
refusing to believe--
games over  you are out

no sweat on David Abe
he's getting paid
on our backs
he buys a brand-new car

gonna get him
he stabbed us
front and back
stop the bleeding now

we are elders
little time
to start
all over again

David Abe you betrayed us
your devious ways 'n lies 
will  haunt you 
make life a  living hell
the truth will set you free
           the truth will set you free
                                      genie nakano, 7-7-20

Meditation #14

You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day,  unless you're too busy, then you should sit for an hour.

Memories of Sri Lanka. Thank you venerable Bhante Piananda, for graciously honoring me to meditate and teach yoga in your temple, Colombo, Sri Lanka Circa 2014?

"Best Friends", is a "magic realism" story I wrote after my dog Charlie died of lung cancer. My best friends dog died of cancer shortly after Charlie.
Charlie the cocker spaniel, is the main character of the story. He is a philosopher and Shelby the red dog is his best friend. Originally posted on Spillwords.Com. Thank you Spillwords for supplying the image. It looks just like my dog Charlie.
