Re: are u ready for some football?

I bartended all through college. Neighborhood type place. Great cliental. Good folks. Loved every minute of it (except cleaning the toilets). Always closed up, poured myself a draft, played MY music on the juke and played a couple of games of Donkey Kong.

Re: got the blues got the jazz

"Hey buddy can you spare a wind chime…"

Found poetry is one thing. Found music is also out there if we take the time to really listen (e.g. a woman's soft laugh, a Cardinal at dusk, the drone of the city, the grandfather clock in my foyer at 3 am).

Enjoyed this. Thanks for posting.

Re: Intertwined

Oh, it's a good thing, TJFlowers80.

From "An Affair to Remember" to "All That Heaven Allows" all the way up to "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"

It's a very good thing.

Re: Three am

Doreen's poem got me thinking about it. @revolution: I do think that some poets do "try" to hide in their poems though. Influences the end product, I think. I know a couple from another ...

Re: 4am to 5am

I will PM you with a couple of places (theater websites) that would love to read your stuff. Most of them are free (always stay away from ANYONE who wants to charge a reading fee).

Any good actress would have a field day w/this stuff.

Re: Intertwined

I always feel like renting and watching a 50's romantic movie when I read your stuff. "An Affair to Remember" or something alike.

Warm. Dreamy. Debora Kerr-like-esque.
