List Poems

I have two list poems for you all today.  I wrote these while sitting on a large wooden chair set up by the side of a small farmers’ market.  The town of Athens is very inspiring since there is so much going on and many fascinating people.  I sat and ate my coconut icecream, watching the cars and bicyclists whiz by.  It’s simple, but I love the way a list poem flows and my brain composes a little beat to it.
