THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Praise Be” by Lowell Jaeger: clerking, willing, smock, walk, hairspray, boxes, hips, wonders, lipsticks, chores, wisp, seldom

Thinking about my chores as I walk
Lipsticks and hairspray to buy
I am with wonders as one amblers
Carry boxes with a willing sigh

Do my hips look wider with my smock?
Wisp of breath up in the sky
As one amblers, I am with wonders
Seldom do I water my bonsai

Going through narrow streets in our block
My make-up I still apply
I am with wonders as one amblers
We have a great town I can’t deny*
