The Straight Skinny



So she asked me to
reveal my slivered soul in
verse - and I of course
refused because I
mostly lie in words.

It's my eyebrows tell the truth.
Or my blushing ears -
So I grew my hair
to cover the stupid things.

I can't help lying
when I sit and write.
I write bunches - so many
poems (and comments
on the social sites)
as if anyone ever
cared - and I claim not
to care if they care.
But I do...really do care.

(No. I deny this claim.
What just happened here?)

  2. I believe we became friends through words on-line in 2008, the same year we, i see now, both started blogging.

    1. Yes. You were one of my first friends in this on line world. And still are a friend. Many changes.

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