This fits in rather neatly with a tune I heard onna radio last night(Vinyl Tap with R. Bachman - good show), a certain "Old Shoes And Leggings" by one Uncle Eck. 'My ma said give him some meat, and o my my how he did eat, with his old shoes and leggins on'. Apparently, none of the other girls would 'ave 'im.

Furbearing and burlap-wrapped, but not so palmy pink,

ps - cool poem, I liked!

It would be really great with a whole book of these learned journal articles of yours! Love your sense of humor. The imagery is extremely vivid. Love it!

jenny ~ yeah i just decided a couple days ago to do more of them (5-10) and put them into some kind of combined format (not sure yet) i might have to do some special artwork for it too:)

I have a picture in my mind how it would feel like to be completely weightless.

I'm listening to “Gigolo aunt” (I love the chorus; it’s like your poetry, playful and dense at the same time. Like tissue or spaghetti perhaps) and drinking a fantastic chardonnay (Redwood creek) now.

I love your learned journals btw.
Please do a book so we can publish it on fosebooks!

po ~ i keep coming up with ideas that involve weightlessness, not as art or poetry though...

You're so cool!

I love the line

“lopes along with a jolly gait.”

NIKKI said...

ande ~ that is totally my favorite...how that last line rhymes with the line before it...I was hoping someone would say something about it:)
