Full Moon
Here seventy years
Big fucking deal

even the moon
deigns to rise

Couldn't say for sure - I'm not seventy!

I wouldn't wish any harm to you though, so have an enjoyable birthday!

Happy Birthday - oh, one who is older than I

My word verification is pingly - so
I hope you have a pingly day of it.

No harm wished and a happy pingly day - Ed, it doesn't get better than this.

And my word verification is, no lie,
"cheri," so stick it right on top ...
