Black Wednesday

I hear about fun times
that people have and envy
not so much that I myself won’t have them
in a way; more, the belonging in their moment
I seem incapable of replicating.
Middle-child syndrome you might call it;
the perpetual third wheel, or often less
and more a spoke within the tire
to break down and stop the wagon–
if only that significant.


  1. :-) I was the baby of the family until my little brother came along when I was 15 years old. I've never quite forgiven him for displacing me. LOL! Happy Thanksgiving, Ben!! xo

  2. Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving too, Marion! Is it different in Louisiana or do you eat the same things? For some reason I'm thinking there's more seafood, gumbo and such.

  3. We usually have turkey and the works, but this year we had brisket, ham and the works. The turkey was outside chasing my husband. I wish I'd taken a photo. We were at my country daughter's home on the farm.

    I hope you had a great day. We sometimes do gumbo for Christmas or New Years, of course with the black-eyed peas for luck and cabbage for wealth in the coming year. Any traditions in middle earth where you live? :-)

  4. Oh, yes. Lots of lembas. And PO-TAT-OES! You know, smash 'em, boil 'em, stick in 'em in a stew.


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
