Last Saturday you took my hand and led me to a fort built of blankets.
It cloaked the bed and covered the windows.
You said you just wanted to block out the world for a bit.


You had two icepops on the floor. Orange for you, blue for me.
"It's your favourite right?"
They were slushy and melted, but blue is my favourite flavour, you're right.


You didn't have a plan, not that you even needed one, but you did give me a pair of
your mountain socks and told me they were to keep my always-cold-toes warm.


We slept for a bit in our cave.
Maybe ten minutes, maybe three hours, I don't know.


I woke to you telling me your favourite word is mellifluous. You said you like how it rolls
around your tongue and how it kind of reminds you of mille-feuilles, which always makes
you want dessert.


Now I want dessert too.


I don't have a reason for my favourite word. And I didn't realise until that second how
much I've always wanted a conversation about favourite words, with you.


So in a sleepy haze I told you.
"I've always like catkin."

I am a true contemporary
who knows how to acceptably


write a poem. First with a tangible
aroma of burnt toast, I will run on


my imaginary couplets like a stroke
victim of the modern prejudices.


(Strophe’s choice is put aside, and
Iamb not going to count my feet.)


Once cute, most common figures of speech have
worn out their fashion like poorly matched metaphors.


(Do not rhyme, remember, do not rhyme,
as you wax nostalgic for some childhood time… damn!)


Pent up pentameter oozes with therapeutic
confessionals that spring or dance or likewise


incongruently twist uncomfortably on the page,
while conjuring an image both shamefully personal


and embarrassingly boring from a tourist’s slide show
or the shoebox full of faded, classic Polaroids.


Sardonically satiristic, I’ll reach-around to reference
an obscurely erudite portrait of some saint, like


Christina The Astonishing’s flight into the rafters
of the church to avoid the stink of her own kind.


And at the end of a turbulent typhoon of irregular lines
washing deeply into the recesses of nowhere in particular,


I will, after too long a time, finally and hopefully declare:
une mule morte sur les clefs du piano.


Self satisfied, I’ll end my rant -- non sequitur but unchallenged…
or would you prefer a tantalizing inquiry of you, Dear Reader?

No matter how fast I drove,


That little spider didn't fall off the wing mirror.


I named him Clingy.

anybody have any idea why I can't upload any records.  Both video and image is saying I am not uploading the right kind of file but according to my computer the filer is saved in an appropiate file format.  What gives?
