This Week in Poetry, Math, and Remembering

World Poetry Day went by
without acknowledgement
   even to myself
but for that internal nod
           hello slacker
Instead I dreamed of budgets
       & spreadsheets
flipped through old photos
wondered what gaslighting means
             over black coffee

Mama Zen asked the Real Toads: “Think back over the past week. What have you observed that was odd, unusual, or just plain weird? Tell me about it in 60 words or less.”
