Changes

Hey, I thought, this is a walnut tree!
I saw the walnut -eh, balls, on the ground.
Too close to the house though.
I could see some had fallen on the roof.
I would like to have a walnut tree, I thought.
It’s wood is so beautiful.
The nuts so tasty.  Hard work though.
And I thought, that’s a cool tree.
Then it was inside to meet my new wife’s grandparents.
That was so many things ago.
Two college degrees ago.
Three kids ago.
Almost one career ago.
One almost great love ago.
But it never really was.
More of her thinking me an idiot.
It’s over.  But I still wish I had a walnut tree.

The Idiot and the Walnut Tree…..
