Is it true we can define ourselves thru language? Ain’t that a rub! The only reason we have “lost moments” Is only because they’re there “A penny for your thoughts” Or, “What are you thinking about?” “Oh, nothing”… Like I should know where I’m always supposed to be? But I got to tell you I really... Sign in to see full entry.

PORTRAIT OF A ROCK So, here I am A rock amongst rocks Basking in the Sun, my destiny If my shoulders seem slopped I have weathered my storms And I have nothing more to say about that If only because I’m too old to be ageless And it’s hard to remember things I forgot So here I am, a rock among other...

DID I LEAVE MY SHOES IN BRIDGEPORT? (a little re-write) Spunk, Waddle, and Contortions does Rubber Maid still make glue? I'll get it together if I can get my shoes back from Bridgeport (well, I was just there, wasn't I?) and the only reason I got lost is because it looked the same as any other place...

OF THE 2ND DIMENSION I’m getting mildly inebriated But I like this course I ‘m traveling on Because I’m not ready to meet my maker yet I figure I still got some things to do If I could ever whittle them out Not that I have a plan My info tells me I’m not where I was Because I’m now here And I don’t...

Results of this week's communal poem--and as always quite amazing, if only to expect the unexpected, and how we respond to the spinning of an idea thru individual designs while keeping intact the thread of, and the insight of language and story. But anyone can initiate this process. Just put out the... Sign in to see full entry.

Anyone up for another communal poem? Rules are 3-line stanza only, and you can't come back in until someone else has written--but leave some time/space to see where the other entries are going. Other than that, if you hear it, play it. I'll begin: If I were a poet, what song would I sing? of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Is there a truth that explodes beyond itself? Or to be the ape-man I am learning how to use tools? If 97% of genes are shared, then there is 3% that don’t Of course this doesn’t bother me at all Because I like all my friends Sign in to see full entry.

CARA CLARA (Clear Face) What’s in a face might be none of my business Sparrows don’t cling to dawn Does the red dog bark only at noon? My feet are not my thought But they take me where I’m going Simpler,then, to think what one is, or to repeat the same name twice Without the mirror (need opinions on... Sign in to see full entry.

Results of communal poem. Thanks all you fun people. The order of stanzas is me, aceblade, simone, and CC (who I knew could get into this if he had a few more drinks--which took 3 days,and I can understand because I'm a slow drinker too). The original idea was 5 stanzas, tho it might have been... Sign in to see full entry.

If I could love again, would I tie my shoes? A simple round-about so easily unraveled Or to tie a knot not easily loosened Tugging the thread to a secret entrance Never to be exhumed I might be who I am if I knew what I should be doing Unraveling unfinished dreams that are still beyond me Pondering...
