Oh this is easy

Junk food junkie in me

I’m Queen of the junk food

Feeding my mood

Lover of ono kine grindz, you see?


Be it salty or sweet

Or jerkied meat

Chocolate is tops

Add salt and time stops

If it’s chewy I admit defeat.


Coke, Skittles, Haribo gummy bears

Chips, arare, junk food from fairs

Brownie corners, Jelly Bellys

Scotchmallows from See’s

Pickle mango, li hing mui, nothing left to share!

a to z: k is for (my loving and loved) kids

a to z: f is for fifty smiles

Feeling flighty, fearful of failure, fixated and frustrated

Fragile, feeble, frantic, fragmented

Festering internal feuds

Frightening finales.

Faking it, feigning familiarity.

Fifty friendly smiles for me

Facilitating fixed faith

Fear fading, funk flickering

Fabulous family and friends

Featuring fortunate and fresh, flawless and fierce me

Fifty fulfilled smiles from me.
