Some people crave sex,

some tobacco or opiods.

I crave sweets. a hex

bad for health and knees

Who’s gonna win–

me or me?

I fell off the wagon

went out to dinner

Yes, I’m a sinner.

It must be my reptile

brain hungering.

It’s ten o’clock

I’m half crocked

with desire.  I write

in my blog instead.

So far…



About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
