October the tenth month thirty-one days
Frequently trips to view autumn leaves
Occasionally a light fog or a dark haze
But not a detrimental cough or sneeze

In a large several room family home
Dad — would you like to view nature’s grandeur?
Mutually yes, lead us to the place to roam
The foliage was beautiful not manufactured



DAVID GREENBERGER and PAUL CEBAR’s “Cherry Picking Apple Blossom Time”

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

“Look at me! I’m a king! I have a red shirt! I live in Milwaukee!”
– from “A King in Milwaukee, Part 1”

CherryPickingCoverDavid Greenberger is a masterful artist who knows how to get to the heart of matter of getting older. It seems like such an easy thing – I mean, we all get older every day, don’t we? But you can’t see it in a mirror on a daily basis. It’s an elusive topic, and like water through your hand, it’s difficult to get a grasp on.

Greenberger has got hold of it by the neck, and thankfully he won’t let go. He’s been doing it for three decades now as the writer, editor and all-around office boy at the Duplex Planet, a little homemade magazine that’s grown into something of an empire over the years.
