2 Postcard Poems


            Three gentlemen at the bookstore, 
            What do you think they look for?
            Maybe a guide
            On how to decide
            Which kind of hat suits them more.

                Library After Air Raid, London, 1940

            Do you think it too early to dine? 
            That cabbage looks truly divine.
            Perhaps just a nibble--
            I'd rather have kibble!
            Oh, I suppose for a dog that's just fine.

                    Tortoise with a Difference, 1960
                    John Drysdale
