Listing to Center

Pick up toothpaste
Pick up on the guitar
Pick up the pace
Pace yourself, Charley

Going to the grocery store.
Why do we call it a “grocery store?”
What else do we use “grocery” for?
Is there a grocery pub?

Sidle up to the bar.
Raise the bar.
Bar none.

Bar nuns?

None the worse.
Better or worse.
Worse than I expected.
Expected to be rich by now.

Run to the store.
Run in your socks.
Da do run run.
Socks you in the mouth.

I used to be OCD,
but I organized,
and alphabetized
and filed…
CDO all the way!

List to center!
List to center!
List to center!

dVerse Poets Pub poses the challenge of writing a list poem.  For better or worse, here is mine.
