Notes to this poem…
Just a thought I had of my main man, Nelson, while I was out on my run today. Short and sweet, and short enough to tweet.
The man and I share birthdays, but he is getting old. I don’t know how many more years I’ll see celebrations of his birthday as a birthday routine of mine, but I hope it will be many.
The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.O.
