So do Cap Hill partyers
And their cheap beer cans

Hill to Hill

Only thing steeper
On DC's Capitol Hill
Is the price of beer

Show me some creativity

I love public art.
But poetry on buses:
total waste of funds.

Don't make me pull this bus over

Misbehave on the
bus, and driver will send you
to the Time Our Chair.

Are there directions for these directions?

South is east of north
West, like north, is north of south
This compass rose blows

Deciduous decisions

The Evergreen State
For a few October weeks
Tests out a new hue

Six people do not fit in a Hopvine booth

Pleasant game of cards
Until City spills my beer.

Are you my old bike?!

Stopped me in my tracks
Same make, model; frame too small...
Guess I'll keep looking.
