K. Kay?

I wonder if the kaka bird is jealous of the kagu?

It seems so unfair the distribution of names.

Did someone tickle the funnybone when the Kiwis were naming their parrot friend,

or was it misery loves company?


One has to wonder how the ked, wingless but bloodthirsty,

climbs aboard its moving targets.

Does it catch a ride on the kebbie of a passing shepherd?

Perhaps it’s reliant upon an old keffel or two wandering by.


At University I studied kinesthetics and kinesiology

in hopes of working the kinkles through kinematics.

What possible reason to turn ones back on kyphosis?

Traded  in for the koans of humanity.


But it’s not all Kuru and questions, the letter K.

K can be the delicate golden sparkle of a silken kincob.

The dizzying head rush carried on the wafting smoke of a kif.

K is the ecstasy of kareeza with your kickie-wickie.  Z~

    Well, I can honestly say I did not know the difference between kinesthetics and kinesiology until now. And pretty much all your other Ks. I have kyphosis.

      Really? It must be a pretty mild one…you dont look kyphotic at all… You sure its just not bad posture? ALthough you dont even seem to look like that in photos… You look like you have great posture… even when lugging a kid on one arm! OMG Thanks for the vid… so cute! How do you do slow mo? I dont think my recorder has that!
