Where will you go?

  1. Where will you go? I do not know.
  2. Where rivers flow or breezes blow
  3. Where flies the crow or sunsets glow
  4. Search high and low, look to and fro
  5. My garden hoe, My front yard mow
  6. Drink cups of joe, and sweet cocoa.
  7. Eat lots of pho, and risotto,
  8. And sweet gateaux, and cookie dough,
  9. Pistachios, and sloppy joes.
  10. Pay debts I owe, crush status quo
  11. A blanket sew, make forts of snow
  12. Go watch a show, a baseball throw
  13. Get painted toes and toss yo-yos
  14. Dive deep below and bang bongos
  15. Wear cheap chapeaux, stay in chateaux
  16. Eat sweet cocoa, invent gizmos
  17. Take up judo or tae kwon do.
  18. Shoot a crossbow, chase tornadoes
  19. Run in meadows or write memos
  20. Ride the Metro, visit Moscow
  21. Buy a Pinto, follow rainbows
  22. Sort my photos, help the rhinos
  23. Embrace shadows, climb up willows
  24. Read some Thoreau, master tiptoe
  25. Replace my “oh…’ with lots of “woah!”
  26. Watch puppet shows from long ago.
  27. Grow potatoes and tomatoes
  28. Just take it slow. That’s where I’ll go.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
