    Also, I forgot to say that the "whimper" line is a nice quoting -- aka "sampling" to use a rap reference, or even the style of Eliot himself, from "The Waste Land."

    I like this, Pen. Says so much in few words.

    Do you know the Kenneth Koch Variations on another famous Williams poem?

    Your phone rings,
    And the beep echoes,
    But you don't have ears,
    To hear it,
    You are deaf perhaps,
    Or like you eyes,
    Your ears are shut too...
    Leaping and hopping like a frog now, but still have a long way to go before I get crowned as "King Frog"!

    Man it's hot in here!
    Where's the movie section?
    Let me out of here!
    I'm in love with The Vinegar Man and Mr. Tanner, but be careful, it could just as easily be you.

    Five fingers clasp a glass,
    cold, wet, strong smell,
    somewhere in the distance a train whistle blows
    where I'm going to, no one knows
    I wrote a poem on a leaf and it blew away...

    Wall

    A crumbling ligament
    stirs even under
    the softest touch.
    and somehow a dog
    has taken itself & its tail considerably away
    into the mountains or sea or sky, leaving
    behind: me, wag.

    Two minutes earlier than this
    I wrote you on a post-it,
    And now you're gone.
    Dear,
    did the wind whisk
    you up
    into the stars?

    Apple pie cooling on the sill.
    Sweet smells escape into the air,
    a hint of cinimin?
    Behind, a mother gently rocks her loving child,
    her hair in a braid, her body in a blue dress.
    Outside there is only me.
    I wrote a poem on a leaf and it blew away...

    Red

    -Valentine's Day, 2003

    Colors this day,
    Edge of a rainbow,
    Genus of passion,
    Flowers of exotica,
    Fingers of dawn,
    Hidden in sunlight,
    In the symbol that joins us,
    Dances in crystal,
    Shyly in diamonds,
    Falling in starlight,
    Hearts between us,
    Pulse of forever…

    Exclamation

    First Sight

    When I first saw you
    Come in that door
    First day of school
    Ninth Grade World Geography

    Those soft green eyes.
    That soft dark hair.,
    I told myself
    That’s my girl

    What I didn’t know
    Was you had felt the same
    That gawky cowboy in
    The back row seat

    Through the years
    We had other dates
    We always turn to each other
    For advice when we had need

    You know my heart
    Almost exploded inside
    When you told me “Yes”
    That day at the top of the stairs…

    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    You laugh,
    And I'll keep staring,
    And when your eyes would stop watering,
    I'll tell you,my friend,
    Your joke was not funny!

    (How stupid can I get)
    Leaping and hopping like a frog now, but still have a long way to go before I get crowned as "King Frog"!

    another tiny one

    Another tiny one, not a particularly funny one, at least not
    intentionally. But here goes:




    In Transit
    We don’t come sliding on a rainbow bridge;
    no wisps of clouds puff out of our heels;
    no stardust sticks to our original skin;
    haphazardly we are dropped down,
    without strings waving up to billowing silk,
    without steely stone anchoring our feet,
    yet here we are
    detached, dispatched, and drifting.
