Good Girl (50 word story)

With his hand twisted in her long curly locks he said between moans, “I thought… you were… a good girl.”

“I was,” she said slowly, gazing up from between his thighs with a gleam in her eyes. “That wasn’t working out so well for me so I’m trying something different.”

Memories (50 word story)

After violently tearing page after page of happy faces frozen in time from the album she lit the glossy plastic covered things on fire and unceremoniously dropped them in the bin.

“Photographs of other people’s memories

remind me of a life stolen from me.”

she explained to her befuddled neighbor.

consider the muse

They say it’s a fine line between genius and madness

and I agree, a fine line indeed

because I can see the poetry in insanity

and the insanity in poetry

or maybe poetry is a way to release some instability

while still being considered sane

consider the muse

we wait impatiently to hear her voice whispering in our ear

to be graced with her presence, to feel her near

but we are Poets, Artists, Writers………not mentally ill!

it’s not as if we “hear voices” and are “compelled to do as they say”

In poetry we can explore death and dying, even murder and suicide

without fear of being locked away and medicated

with words I’ve killed myself a thousand times

on paper, I have a standing date with death

with sharpened pen I’ve tortured and murdered my abusers too

the acts carried out in poetry

have helped me survive in reality.

your truth

why are you wasting time?

scribbling your words in invisible ink?

like fat fingers

on steamed up mirrors

and foggy windows…

why would you let your truth

disappear

into

obscurity?

it needs to be read, heard & recognized

chisel your words in stone

etch them in glass

hell,

paint the town red with your truth

your voice, your words need to be translated in 24 languages

& written in braille

so even the blind 

can see

your truth.

petrified

oh i have reasons

some are even justified

i’m sure you’d agree

·

have excuses too

but those can be brushed aside

fairly easily

·

so why do i find

ink in my pen petrified

halting poetry?

pedaling poet

I was just outside

pondering my inability

to produce any post-worthy poetry

when a drunken poet

rode by on a bicycle

performing spoken word

loudly

for the neighborhood

I only caught part of it

as he pedaled past

in the dark

but I’m sure it was beautiful

and profound…

“…camero burning rubber

Danny Glover

got to wear a rubber…” — the Pedaling Poet

 

You have to admire his confidence to share his words with anyone who was listening.  Got me to thinking that I should just post something whether I think it is “post-worthy” or not.

catch

 

scattered thoughts,

words

swirl

skeetering by

at the edges of my mind

causing that “tip of the tongue” feeling

but nothing gels…nothing firms up

poetry refusing to be forced

will not be written or spoken

instead

the lines catch  in my throat

aggravating already swollen vocal cords

I fear a broken voice.

SPAM Comments or Found Poetry?

Hi!  I’m sure you all get a bunch of SPAM comments…I know I do.  So I decided to take all of them that I have received in the last 2 days and make them into “poetry.”

These are the rules I set/ imposed upon myself:

1- You must use every single word from all comments

2- Each line of “poetry” must be comprised of consecutive words from one comment (No rearranging to actually make sense or prettify)

3- Any words added to help with flow must be in bold

4- Punctuation and emoticons can be ignored

Without further ado…here are my humble offerings:

 

1.

It is estimated that up to 90% of the US population

will have the virus by the time they reach age 50

folks you actually recognize

mark it on the calendar

so you know

your year to die

alternately

you must eat a food from the 11-to-20 gram net carb list

at the following times: 2, 6, & 9

for any high quality chance

to not contract the disease

I most unquestionably will make certain to do not forget

Even when I am at home on the phone

Or on this website


2.

I at last stumbled upon

uk

3.

You Bookmarked my website

4.

while I am also eager of getting knowledge

by exploring in Yahoo

articles or weblog posts

I still cannot

correctly identify the

star behind each door

and that is all what one needs to know

I’ve been exploring for a bit

on this sort of area

So i’m glad to exhibit

this website


 

5.

He was a loose cannon &

seems incredibly complicated

but I’ve an incredibly good uncanny feeling

that I discovered exactly what I needed

so without caution

We hopped on the ferry back

and had our last sleep in Croatia


 

6.

If someone contacts you to

suggest you upgrade to broadband

& says phone and internet typically costs

an arm and a leg

They are speaking approximately!

 


 

7.

I feel that if

you are

Claiming this cash

We can have a

Pension pot

if saved over

between us


 

8.
