*Aug. 22, 2003.

                        I like the morning


                        But I really enjoy the evening--


                        Taking the cool night air


                        As free fuel for working


                        And poetic discovery.


 


                        I like chatting


                        Across a coffee table


                        But I love to drink


                        Amongst friends, with open ears--


                        Learning of life through loosened lips.


 


                        I like introspective writing


                        But I hate extrapolated babblings--


                        Taking the freedom of air


                        As a license to go on and on,


                        Wasting time without a care.


 


                        I like confident people


                        But arrogant ones rattle my nerves--


                        For that artificial barrier


                        Distances them before the start.


                        Besides, the confident ones are friendlier.


 


                        I like potatoes


                        But hate tomatoes.


                        I would eat them if I had to


                        But I'd rather crawl ten miles


                        Before that slimy texture registered.


 


                        I enjoy the gentle breeze


                        But endure the raging wind--


                        The one perspiration's enemy,


                        The other havoc's kin.


                       


                        I like beginnings but, unfortunately, this is the end.
