peeling dichotomies with a switchblade spoon

peeling dichotomies with a switchblade spoon


sandman brevity
breaks of recovery
doomed to thisthatwhy
making macon real
foreclose the deal
its gotta be nevernow
holismokes ride the waves
hopalong cassidy in the grave
trigger the putney
ride the magic reef
the keif is damngood
feeling the rosewood
thorns-a-plenty
keep it steady
dietthroughoverout
the chore of gour-may
lessening hunger shouts
the wine whine wine
poured out red
blood of grape
and tonto unmasked
the patterns incessant
goldilox on bagels
knifespread leg shot
the balcony is full
but room-at-the-top
please do not stop
there is a space
way out of race
no commitments
embraced by words
it is only twoofus
and who would ever

never was not IT
things ringing clear
and smulch vanishfear
the equations remain
the epitome of blame
the skymartial rides
mathematically sound
erupts light emanations
justifying the concerns
wrapped in furs and leather
boa feathers shaking wild
your breath unleashed
and now you knowit but
you try again to define
cheappulpcrime for sale
bottomrow bookstore gone
the way of cybersnowman
collapsing singsing walls
holding back freefallflight
the web spun from
silks stolen from asia
minor miner minor miner
you dont shouldnt cant
go now clumber rubber
the catsmeow heard herds
buffalow style wings flap
and nonpoetics relax
the figment is in you own
head out to the south
reminding the directions
to encompass your mouth
slice of pie applecherry
madeup for you hungry?

in x amount of words
to the power of ten
your imagination
boggles my mind
I sit here agog

I will print it out
dam my ink miser ways
maybe I can deal with it when I have it in my hands not on this glaring screen

Be back with more if I can.

truck! i'm feeling too good from your kind words... and i can't help it. thank you, amigo! i appreciate it but i must admit i have some guilt that you've gotta use up some ink. ever use walgreens for refills? they worked pretty well for me for ten bucks.

... and Janet, i'm thrilled to assist you in kick-starting your juices into a creative flow. but reading your column, my friend, shows me that your juices are flowing quite nicely as they are! :lol:

Where is Jack Benny when I need him?

What is the difference between a Jew and a Canoe?
A canoe tips :wink:

Ten bucks for an ink cartridge :shock:
Well it is worse than you think Cecil, it is a dot matrix, the ribbons cost seven bucks.

But it sounds like a Mack with a bad turbo, scares the hell out of my little dog. But even so I am going to print it cause I thought it was very nice. But giving compliments is not what this board is about. I will try to take it line by line and give you something back, hopefully as pretty as what you wrote but I doubt it.

How's that dot matrix treating you this month, truck? Get a new ribbon yet or are you just memorizing things? (was that Jack Benny enough for you?)

btw: not many folks have ever told me that my poetry is pretty. come to think of it, you're the first in my memory. i think i should thank you for that... 'thank you"...
