A Christmas Poem

Home is where the heart is
Home is where it stays
Home is where I want to be
Home on Chritmas Day


A day to feast and drink
A day to fill our plates
A day to be with loved ones
A day to celebrate


To celebrate the memories
of those who are away
To celebrate this holiday
To celebrate, and pray


To pray for journeys safe
Pray for bounty great
To pray to  end this poem
So our bellies we can sate.

A Little Holiday Poem

a little poem
for us to say

we're most sincere

we wish you all
this holiday
peace and joy
and seasons cheer.

Birthday Poem for Bird, Her 11th

A Bird celebration
filled with temptations
chocolate cake
and no vegetables green

And a poem with some clues
which perhaps you can use
to guess gifts
which you haven't yet seen

One will pretty your locks
it comes in a box
and is used
when in front of the mirror you preen

For the other we'll need
some cloth to proceed
and buttons
and a sewing machine

Thai in Seattle - None Worth a Damn

Why are there no good, authentic Thai restaurants in Seattle? Portland has the amazing PokPok.  (White guy making Thai food that tastes better than it should.)  LA has Thai food that tastes (almost) like delicious Bangkok street food.  Seattle has a lot of great food, but not a single Thai restaurant that is worth its "nam pla" (น้ำปลา).
