This week's words:

Disgust; Pout; Wad

Day After Day

Waiting for the train
heading to the promised land,
this is what she says:

I wish I knew why
I feel such disgust. You pout
and it is so ick.
Did I say that out
loud? Sorry, my dear, sorry.
No I'm not. I'm not
really sorry. Ick.
But I really do want to
know why you are so
abhorrent to me.
Thiry-nine years on it's been-
what a wad of time.
Must I kill you now?

  1. Hadn't heard ick in awhile. What an ending, too.

    1. Take out the alcohol from an alcoholic and that's what you are left with... why the idea of recovery makes so much sense... have to deal with the "ick".

      Otherwise you could just wander off, happy and free from the burdens of alcohol, of the past and present... but then a fellah discovers causes and conditions. Erk.

    2. Erk is a close relative to ick.

  2. why does this happen? It's a shame that love can turn so sour.

    1. You know it is common enough. Many human stories rely on love going south. Love gone wrong or love unrequited, add both together and you get a big chunk of the dramatic life we watch in TV or Moview or plays. So I often write from here too. Don't you think the words sort of pointed in this direction?

  3. My aunt and uncle argued vehemently up till the old man died. However, there was still love between them. I've seen couples where all they feel for each other is disdain. They generally stay together for monetary reasons, but what a price to pay.

    1. They generally stay together for more than the financial reasons, though that is a favorite scapegoat. The other reasons approach insanity and yet the power in the relationship does not belong to either partner.

  4. Ick! Whether 5 or 95 it conjures up the same image. It's a great scrabble word for the letter K too. But I didn't see that ending coming.

    1. I guess he is just not dying fast enough.

    1. I am alcohol-ick. I guess dark humor goes with this particular territory.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
