  1. Stays to protect Peg
    A non-martini Olive
    Husband gone to dump

  2. Susan F — you totally nailed the Haiku salute to Olive Healy!

    Love it and your creativity and humor!

  3. Where did you come from?
    Brought instead of cake!
    Stolen birthday dog

    Loves Sally always
    Loud barks at Glen in playhouse
    Mouthful of pigeons

    Convenient excuse
    Tells Betty came home to feed
    Can smell Don’s girlfriend

    That night changed everything
    Whitman Sampler in locked drawer
    Poor Suzanne in car

    But when time passes
    Sits in dark alone with Don
    Flicks ashes on rug

    Sweet Polly Draper
    Henry asks who let it in!
    Did you go to live with them?

    • Dear Susan F,

      I nominate you to be poet laureate of The Basket of Kisses!

      What a lovey poem.

      Thank you,

      Polly Draper

  4. Poet Laureate
    Thank you, humble for honor
    Never thought I would be

    Just need 5-7-5
    Moments well played on TV
    Seeing in mind’s eye

    Like when Jim Hobart
    Asks Don, “Have you said it yet?”
    I can reply, “Yes!”

    I am Susan F.
    For The Basket of Kisses
    Proud title is mine!
