    Well Mr, I know you're not all that fond of rhyming poetry, so I thought I'd post this one I wrote in 2003 on here for you.


    Mid-Reis, or After The Downsizing Fall From Corporate Grace

    Light danced on the bedroom walls,
    It was early morning and ambient pearly day filled the room.
    I blinked slowly and rolled over.
    The wind in the trees made shadow and light trade places with each other in random gusts; the dancing light making dancing shadows from outside.
    And so I watched the ceaseless flickering for a few minutes, sighed, and got up.
    6 AM on the clock
    on a mid-May morning.
    I looked out the bedroom windows, three in a row, at a verdant green backyard.
    I opened the small balcony door that the central window was set into and stepped out into a rush of air, full with the scents of everything growing. Fresh, sweet, and loud with birds....

    Distant traffic mimicked the distant ocean and beaches.
    “The next best thing to being there is hearing there.” I thought and felt smug, all out of proportion.
    A great slogan for a long distance phone company, thought I, and shouldered into a housecoat and went downstairs to make coffee, trying to shelve the thoughts that came next; no more job, no more money.

    Bitter over said job, worried over said money.
    Later was always there, waiting, and while waiting, I made friends with Worry!
    Why not just swim the tides of emotion?
    Coffee aromas surged in a silent crescendo.
    The coffeemaker cleared its throat, signalling readiness.
    Mug, milk, honey and and the mysterious murky swirl of a spoon later,
    I took in the day; ingredients well stirred in the cup of May.
    “Helloo-o, good morning.” A voice from below the side-yard trellis gave me a start.
    I leaned over the deck’s rail. Below me, looking up from beside a small pile of pulled dandelions was my partner of fourteen years. I smiled downwards and toasted the day with my cup,
    And out of the jewelry box of life came a treasure, a revelation radiating with an inner light.
    Career be damned; loving that one can love and does love slayed Worry.... I leaned over the rail again down at him, smiled, and said,
    “I love you.”

    -Doug 2003

    lol, you guys!

    Hey Roccoe, you wonderful guy you.

    Ciarsolo, don't you think I could , well, fine tune this little beast of a poem?

    When I read it, I like it, but it feels like swallowing plastic cubes in some places.

    You could add some grit to it. A nice splash of rich, dirty, earthy soil should do it icon_biggrin.gif

    May I take a shot at refining your poem?


    For Ciarsolo:

    You're cute.
    Let's fuck.


    It's succinct. I like it.

    Uh Hmmm JP my young sex kitten. I long ago realized under that facade of standoffish behavior is a steaming tidal wave of forgotten passion. icon_cool.gif

    Ciarsolo and I are on the west coast and you on the east. May I suggest your passion best be directed to someone there. I think I have a chilled bottle Of Krug 85 waiting for Ciasolo icon_wink.gif

    Ye of many platitudes
    Ciar of Solo
    I call upon thee in all humility
    May your talons pierce the snail-skulled vermin
    To spill out its vacuous interior
    Across the firmament

    Carry not far that corpulent imp
    But leave it to hang
    By its own viscera
    On the branches of the Tree of Truth

    No dirge shall be sung for the trolls
    Their only memory your disdain
    As you cleanse your talons
    Of their ignoble blood

    I dunno what the hell that is. I'm not a poet. ;x
