j’ai une question

you’re ala carte
my heart on your tongue
carried restlessly into a night
of minstrels, sinking without sight—
I know not what is nestled within
your heart when we are apart,
this blend of ambiguous largess
and small caress of my possibilities
serves as my humility, I am hungering
against the nakedness of a soul
beckoning to a ghost of absinthe,
of absence, no light against darkness

Grist for the Mill
When people find out I work for a puppy mill they are usually unable to hide their disapproval. What they don’t realize is that I am only a financial adviser. I give the puppies sound financial advice. Whatever the puppies do with my advice is up to them. Though I am proud to point out that puppies who have acted on my advice have all done quite well for themselves, aside from a couple of mini pins that got in a little over their heads on penny stocks in Thailand.
I would also like to clue people in on the fact that while puppies might appear to be cute and cuddly wuddly widdle sweethearts, looks can be deceiving. Puppies are, well, let’s just say I advised a litter of wiener dogs and as a result they devalued a certain African country’s currency, and this resulted in more than 3 million people dead due to an ensuing famine and civil war. The wiener dogs cleared 26 bill. Do you think those puppies stopped playing tug of war with their favorite orange blanky for even one second?

Writing your name
over and over
like a practiced signature
whenever
my mind wandered

Your Name: a Signature; (R.N.)

a part of me
now
she is a part of who i am
i never knew existed
but can’t live without
now
like air 
and pizza
and kids movies until 2am
she is a different world
but the same DNA
she is enough me
to turn a we
into an us
into a forever
and ever

like a fairytale story
a disney movie

she is so much more than
so much greater than
so much smarter than
so much…

…so that I am better with her in my life
i am greater than

we are a sum greater than the parts
we might be the best friends of all time

maybe….just maybe
