Most definitely, my cybermuse. You ARE deserving--be GOOD to yourself. LOVE and BE loved!

You're an artist, Nan! I'll think of this poem every time I wander near the fruit bowl and fuzzy mold assaults my eyes.

We/re all deserving, just some of us don't know it.

Thanks for the props, Nan. And the pic. Perfect. As for the format, i dunno, but it took me awhile to figure out how to post something new. i like the look of it, tho, to be honest. Something more literary about it, don't know why.

Floating on the breeze, face in the sun until my last day is done.

Very nice, nan. We men can be nice to have around sometimes ... right?

Fierce as myself to truly intertwine. Not an very day occurrence, but always a fond memory with a whisper of longing

Too bad, we, poets, make readers stop and take us seriously only post-mortem...when we have nothing else to

My daughter moved out in '07 because I wouldn't support her in her career choice to be a poet. God gave me one...

What a perfect picture to put above "I think you're wonderful." He just has that look on his face.

my friend antigeesus left this little tome 4 me on Facebook

Give me a poet like Pablo Neruda.

One that makes Harlem sound just like Bermuda.

He's not into hookers, other dudes, or sports

. And makes enough money to buy his own shorts

dat woman is a doll!!!.

I don't have a bear like Ted, but I do have a dog that sings "You're the First, The Last, My Everything" like Barry White.

I don't like crowds either, except when I'm at Disneyland. They just don't bother me there, I suppose because they and I are both there for the same reason--to have fun! So get the hell out of my way, 'cause I've got to get on Big Splash Mountain, motherfu**er!


quillpena April 7, 2012 @ 12:58 p.m.

All right, enough with the Speedos already.
