Spring Average

Spring Flower Show

In the film credits they list the drivers.  In addition to grips and coaches and assistants, they list tow columns of drivers.   What does it do for the driver to see his or her name in tiny print way, way below the stars’ names in large font?  Perhaps it’s a rung on the ladder to more important things, say Limo Owner.

It’s a little like me listing the one or two best journals that have published my poems when I submit the next bio to the next publication.  Little rungs on a long, long ladder to somewhere.

It’s snowing again.  One or two inches predicted.  Four or five on the ground.  Sigh.

Spring Average

Here’s how they get averages.

They take the highest and the lowest

and add them together; divide by two.

A year ago today – eighty.

Today it’s twenty.

So, today would be fifty

if only it were an Average Day.
