In Another Life, I'd be a Poet, and a Good One

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Today I wanted to rejoin my normal habits of eating out of emotion. I am not pleased that someone did not return my phone call. However, instead of eating tomorrow's lunch, I decided to write two less than mediocre poems to cure the intense waves of pissivity that were threatening my shoreline. Here they are:

1. Today we have not talked for more than half an hour
But you could not pry yourself from Peter and Powell
For more than five minutes before I tried to go to church
I was even talking when you hung up to make things worse
You didn't notice that because you clearly could care less
Since you never called back or even sent a text
Although you can't see it wrapped inside this stupid poem
I really am serious when I say you left me lonesome
And if you are tempted to say that this poems sucks doo doo
Then first remember that I think the same about you

2. Falling in is easier
We talk for three hours
You cry to the cuckoo
her neck thins to twine
Ooh, you two, do too
how cute
that’s love

Falling out is colder
it is the cold shock of air
after pruning in water
and the dry grit of sand
on beach swathed toes

Falling out is remembering the life you had before you fell in
and the pain you feel when he remembers too

OK. I realize that both of these poems suck. However, they were beneficial for me to write. Plus, my desire to eat more food has temporarily been quelled. Not to mention, neither of them sucks as much as the catalyst for these poems. He sucks a lot.

    I thought they were good. I especially appreciated the creative use of the word, "pissivity" Hope you are feeling better...Glad you resisted the urge to eat.
