Inventing Soap

I wish I had invented soap
now what a thing to do
each time a person washes clean
those vibes come back to you

I wish I had invented pearls
with luster and with sheen
strung up about the finest of necks
now that would be so keen...

I wish I had invented the car
the plane the fire or the wheel
Each one a miracle (of sort) which 'make' us
all so happy-such a deal

I wish I had invented Tupperware
gravy or some heels
instead of lazing all about or feigning
just spinning my wheels.

[And so I write this poem instead,
my offering to you ( I'll leave it to you to 'invent the wheel' )
...The tread of tires going 'round and 'round
Sweet Jesus--how it feel]

    It sure is nice (as always) to touch base with you, Lynn.
    How is your summer going, friend?


Please do...tell.
