Working at an architect firm-
I met two women where trust was earned.
Names are Arylce and Beverly
they lived the hard life with loyalty.
Loyalty to Smiley, Glotter & Nyberg architects
they did give–
they received a pension in which to live.
Now I saw Arlyce in a nursing home
where she was left all alone.
I gave her a Barbie Doll
She was so Happy to see me-!
she forgot it all-
Forgot she had schizophrenia
She said long words to me like never before.
Wow to see You in a million years!”
Then I talked to Arylce as I wiped my tears
she was very happy to see me-
she is a sweet dear.
Now with Beverly we sent Christmas cards
to each other with good cheer.
Beverly so sorry I didn’t get to Willmar when I was near.
Now both women friends have passed-
They are together laughing again at last.

Louella has a very kind heart
She always said the words “Golden”
right from the start.
Louella was very generous with me
She would let me make copies for free.
She also promoted my Barnes & Noble show
She would walk up Nicollet Mall—
Handing out flyers while shouting to the crowds
She was fearless, didn’t care if she was loud.
She gave me one of my Krendoll island chairs
She donated to me for she has a heart that cares.
She was always upbeat and in a good mood
I loved getting her lunches to show my gratitude.
Thank you Louella for helping me
And a big hug from Melodie
Very Happy Birthday to You-
I hope its filled with glee.

I booked a show to story-tell
In a church with UniCandle and Mel.
Myrtle Beach the destiny to be
I drove all night, to the hour of three.
I performed with puppets in front
of the church the next day-
Puppet recited poem with birds flying away.
Then downstairs to Sunday School
Children dressed in Krendoll costumes which were cool.
Children laughed real loud
Had so much fun the upstairs adult crowd–
Heard how children were having fun
This is before storytelling has begun.
Now storytelling of “Sarah’s Special Birthday” goes real smooth,
Girl in front acts out a pterodactyl with no tooth.
Photos taken that show the day,
It turned out great I have to say.

I met Autumn in the summer of 2003
she is in Callie now happy and carefree.
She is was a Hut studio artist back in the day
she looked like Drew Barrymore in everyway.
She gave me the green bridesmaid outfit
which I wore to promote me in Mn Fringe
Thank you Autumn, you are a sweet friend.
Nice to meet your mother and get dolled up
for the camera with Alan by the palm trees
it was great photos to put on my website.
Happy day to you out west-
that will be the state I will visit next.

It was year 2003
Mn Fringe Festival I was in with Melodie.
Friends from Iowa came and played
played Krendoll character on the stage.
Melodie was hidden and they had to find
objects to melt her and make her celebrate in time.
Celebrate her birthday and become a Suzarian Star princess at last
Razel was waiting in the lurks and she would ruin it if given a chance.
Now, my show was original for I am a rogue
Most shows at Mn Fringe Festival are commercial and a bore.
The word Fringe means to be on the edge
they need to bring more shows like that
to Mn Fringe again.

In a taxi I did ride-
having such a fun time.
It was Bora Bora the island
in the south.
It was such a fun time
without a doubt.
Driving with a guy in a dress
you don’t believe me?
His boyfriend was in the backseat.
He was really sweet
and small as can be.
Drove up the mountainside
ate mangos and saw
skirts made with die.
Then I did shop and buy
something that caught my eye.
A straw hat for my puppet
she wore it sitting on a tuffet.
Taxi driver did receive,
button of me and Melodie.
Same with people off
the cruise ship-
they video taped me
taking a dip.
At Bora Bora’s hotel
please don’t tell.
For I did crash the beach
without my doll Mel.
Then a lady at pearl jewelry store
recognized me from before-
but couldn’t think of what for.
She’s sitting in the executive suite
thought I was sweet and as a treat
I could stay in Bora Bora for free.
Jewelry lady did finally realize
she saw me on the button
buttoned to dress of taxi guy
happy with all smiles and sunshine.

In 2005 I had found–
a duplex in West Palm
close to downtown.
I went a cross the bridge
To work for Michael’s café-
Ended up working for
Palm Beach Today.
I started out stuffing their
Newspapers with big colorful ads
Then Ron wanted me
To take photographs.
My first assignment
Was the Palm Beach Pet Parade—
Dogs and owners dressed
in costumes looking
cool in the shade.
Photos in the Gucci Courtyard
Were interesting and fun
I took a photo of a lady and her
Dog kissing towards the sun.
That photo landed me the job
The job of being a photographer
With the hob knobs.
I went to the Breakers Hotel
shot Schumacher’s trunk show.
sales the Chevy cars-
The Shiny Sheet photographers
were on me, not very far.
I placed Kanaris and bride
on curving staircase
photos I took were
At the Mara-A-Largo Club
is where I photographed
It was a fascinating
4 months in time
some places I visited
were very sublime.

It was the summer of 1996-
I drove to Duluth with fellow Czechoslovakian.
Now Duluth is beautiful in the summer and the fall
The “bird watcher” visit and photograph it all.
Lake Superior also has ships large and great–
Lake Superior keeps Duluth warm in winter
and cool in summer never higher than 88.
Drove around downtown
College nightclub is what we found.
I wore some scarves
which wrapped around
around my waist
It looked fashionable and in good taste.
Everyone on dance floor watched my scarves
they saw how it began wrapping around my arms.
College girls started dancing like me
I was surrounded by ton of girls in a sorority
“I Wish I had Jessie’s Girl”
was the song I danced to
College kids watched me with all my moves.
When I left they all said “She’s leaving! ”
my friend told me and I’m not kidding.
I will go back there some autumn day
before winter comes and the leaves fly away.
