Re: A One And a Two

Ahh that Lawrence Welk
I used to fantasize about him
imagine
that secretly he tucked a pack of cigarettes in his T-shirt sleeve
listened to 'Satisfaction' by the Rolling Stones
passing his spliff to The Champagne Lady
the two of them just laughing their asses off

Re: ENID'S ANOTHER DAY.

Vivid and chilling. That awful moment when you're suddenly aware, that one person you don't want near is standing right there. I know the feeling well. And it is just another day. Wonderful portrayal. Thank you!

Re: JAM HERE! The Annual Spring Equinox Poetry Jam

I remember a spring
about the year 1990
living in a friend's garage
because we defaulted on the Spanaway house
how blessed I felt on a February morning
having sunshine in the front yard
so when I washed my hair with the garden hose
it didn't feel so bad

Re: JAM HERE! The Annual Spring Equinox Poetry Jam

I need a friend
one who has a boat
just a dinghy or a schooner or something that will float
I need the friend
to have a well stocked bar
in the galley
dance and party and rock that boat
like they do in southern cali

Re: general observation

haven't even begun the move yet, cuz no job has been obtained to date
wondering if I'm going to end up moving even without a secured job
my management company is all over my ass to either sign another lease or tell them exactly
when I'm moving out
wish they'd get off my fucking back
bitches

Re: Articulation

I love this poem, 68. How you describe that your father articulates his presence through a rusty nail. Brilliant. I think the essence of our loved ones is left behind by them, and they give us little reminders in surprising ways.

Enjoyed -- thank you!

I like the signature quote on your profile. Can't agree more. Makes me want to adopt 'Dignity is for chumps' as a motto. Very inspiring.

lovely piece, thank you ---
