Teabag Prophecy 2

You will never
feel lonely
with a poet
in your pocket.

This teabag label wisdom may
be a typo (it is attributed to John Adams
1735-1826) but I prefer it to simply having a poem in my pocket.

It reminds me of when we were young and romantic and parting with a loved one, saying I wish you were as small as a mouse and I could put you in my pocket - kind of what today's texting devices can do, without the heartbeat. I wish you were ... and on the game would go.

In today's world a little poet in our pocket could be a fun way to have some rhyme, rhythm and directions from a portable muse.
