Rob McKuen

In the waiting room at the Va Clinic is a table table of donated books.  Sometimes I come across something more interesting than the latest mysteries or romance novels.  I just read a book of poems by Rod McKuen called Stanyon Street and Other Sorrows. It really liked them.  Very simple, romantic and sentimental but not too sappy or pretentious.

It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

He was real popular with we old hippies back in the late 60s, early 70's. Well, the girls really liked him, so we had to too.

That's the problem with being a rebel. There are rules for that too.

But yea, I remember actually liking his stuff.
It isn't true that non-existent gods can't do anything. For instance, they were able to make me into an atheist.

I have always thought I was born a decade too late.  I am really a displaced hippy.

I can vouch for that sentiment but I don't follow them.
