Thanks for all the praise, and I'm glad you all enjoyed this. These types of poems are what I call antidotes to myself. Due to a ... very interesting ... past, I seem to be fixated on issues I wish I weren't so fixated on -- abuse, anger, regret, longing. Well, those aren't so much issues as pieces of a very broken puzzle. But we all need our escapes, and sometimes, my poetry is too real to me, to close to the truth, to be fantasy. I love having fun, and do, but that just doesn't seem to enter my poetry very much. So here's the antidote to too much seriousness. Long live fun!
(this post is pretty ironic, considering the next poem I'm about to post ... the truest thing I've put up here yet, and one that's finally let me step back from a very fragile relationship and see it for what it is)
