taken from popsicle sticks (light red, orange, dark red)


the milk went bad and turned rotten.
what keys can't you put in a lock?
she wanted to wait in the wings.
because it hurt its spine.

what subject did the witch pass in school?
so he could work undercover.
what's the richest kind of air?
because it never tires of hearing it.

he was a big ham -- a computer mouse;
a crab.

bsq...(you were expecting me right) LOL

I gotta tell ya...I've read this gem 3, 4, 5 times...and maybe its cause I been up since 5am, or maybe its cause YOU are just WAY too DEEP for me...(this is the reason im sure)
but i dont have a clue what your intent here was...BUT either way...theres something about it i like...the word choices are way cool...
"what's the richest kind of air?
because it never tires of hearing it."

when my head stops hurting maybe it will come to me... love the title...i was always partial to cherry, how about you?
deep deep my poetic pal...you are!!(smile)


 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
vertical horizon

JM,
This poem was an experiment. I find it interesting whenever corporations decide to print riddles and sayings on their products for no apparent reason. This is me taking questions and answers to riddles printed on popsicle sticks (the question is at the end you hold -- the answer is underneath the popsicle, so you have to eat to find the answer), and just showing how bizarre things can be when out of context -- not to mention sinister. "the milk turned bad and went rotten," "it broke its spine," etc.

IN,
No, but I'll be yours.

JM,
How'd you guess? Yep, I'm a grape guy. That's always been my favorite (though I also liked root beer flavor when I was a kid -- do they even make those anymore?; it wasn't THAT long ago). And I just bought some ice pops (as opposed to juice) today, so, in a month or so, you might see 'Ice pop wisdom.' Just having fun. And it's not even summer yet!

s,
Here's hoping you get a new comp soon. Let the e-mail flow like melting popsicles, with the occasional stick floating in the goo for the sheer hell of it. Whatever that meant.

Now there is a thought, Mike. How do we write something together?  I have an idea....

Amazing, and to think if I was not up in the wee hours of the morning today, I may have never discovered your talent with the Robot poem, which has led me to all these other's, I truly am amazed, you have a very interesting way of expressing your views.

INclan,
I'm all ears.

Lost Dreamer,
Thanks for being so receptive to my work. I know I'm thanking you for something neither of us really control -- what makes people like a certain author, singer, artist, cook, etc.? -- but I thank you anyway. I'm glad you're enjoying my stuff so much. It gives me a little renewed passion to keep on writing (though I don't think I'll ever be able to stop anyway).

Mike
