Chris Walken, as Captain Koons - from the movie PulpFiction:

The way your dad looked at it, this watch was your birthright. He'd be damned if any slopes gonna put their greasy yellow hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it, in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable piece of metal up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you.


now there's a quote....

Erik, this has beena few places already, but my muse has gone on a stroll, and I'm running out of material.....

trees are always beautiful

in their swelling bud stage
they speak eloquently
of spring's hope
folded vitality
in trembling limbo
strength under wraps

in summer leaf
they politely offer shade
shelter from the elements
bark homes for insects
highways for squirrels
perches for birds

they turn their leaves
upside down
several hours before a rain
silvery and shivering
graceful veins
lovely in their anticipation

but in autumn
they are most beautiful
blazing like daylight torches
bejeweling the ground
even in death
giving beauty and scent

in winter
the grey and black skeletons
stark against snow
strength and form revealed
mute sentinels
to future springs

^^^ My Dear C thank you for showing such a gift...forgiveness
I wish more would!!!

Oh Dear Bad Bad Viking
You need a damn good spanking
You didn't look before you leaped
Honor of a friend never to defeat
A big pot stirred to no one's liking
You are a very naughty Viking
But true to the gentleman you are
An apology excepted thus far
Many have become new friends
Together strong to the ends...

So look out trouble here we come!

mr. malaprop

for sheer principal of the matter....
I listen to him natter
laying down his verbal patter
mangling language to a tatter
I supress a smile
avoid eye contact for awhile
not laughing is a trial
till I can look up without guile
Oh, save me from this malaprop
I've nearly given up all hope
a rescue ring so I can cope
just a little conversational rope

maybe I'm aiming too small....I just want a new sidewalk, though a garage and porch would be nice....oh, and true love and world peace....they say the squeaking wheel gets the grease...

something silly for ya...

Got the Slickest pig in town
his spelling is of great renown
I took him to the county fair
and he impressed the judges there
and so he lives in country peace
among the sheep, the cows and geese

I see you looking
but you never write
somehow you found me
but never a bite
good thing I don't have to rely
on a dating site
and the meager reply
to soften my plight

Oh I've sent a note
when I like what you've got
but do you reply?
oh no, you do not
I guess what you see
is not what you like
good thing this is free
when you click and say yike

there's got to be one
that I'm looking for
who's looking is done
when I show at the door
we'll look at each other
and break out in grins
and never will bother
at looking again

loopy

as starlight is cast
and moonlight's low slung
I spin in a dance
with wildness outflung
lupine and feral
in silvery light
I am in peril
of lifting in flight
diving and swooping
exulting in whoops
I'm moon mad and night glad
and taking large scoops
with both of the dippers
dripping stars on daytrippers
and nincompoops

It's been awhile since I've visited you....I missed the boat in first, last and you don't mind my rhymes....

Erik, it's what's called a "universal theme".....shared by all genders, races and economic backgrounds (though the rich may suffer through their gardeners)....

Doubtful, I've often considered goats....but I worry about my extreme temperature ranges, and shelter for them. Also, I'm a passionate gardener....so what happens if and when they get loose, and chew on my landscaping? I guess I'll have to admire them from afar....

the faucet

writing poems on POF
turned a lifelong trickle
into a stream
years of ideas
gushed out in a rush
and now it feels
like I've run out of steam
but I know it's not so
'cause nothing is dammed
it's just that before
the ideas were jammed
so even if the flow is slow
and my cache is small
I answer to creative call
and writing's all I really ever wanted
the nag of the ambition
that for decades left me haunted
feeling there was something
that I had left undone
but now the sense of failure
has been broken
my ambition and my dreaming mind
have spoken

Ash, you goofball....

in thanks

part of the universe
god's luminous verse
in celestial language
the dazzling brilliance
which we live under
a mind so profound
we have stood
in sheer wonder
and gratitude
at the magnitude
of our earthly
interlude

~Broken Heart~

As pieces fall of thy heart
Crash, like deafening thunder
Feelings, lives torn apart
Love once, never put asunder

Words untrue, ring out
Never one or other to blame
But in public, one shout
Cruel to claim, no shame

Sheltered, from the stormy blast
As words flow from tainted stream
No wisdom or help in ages past
In my soul, a silent scream

Empty words of trust
Words of hope, lost
Unforgiving, a spankin' lust
For a true heart, it cost

One seeks lust, One Love
A heart is a precious gift
From the creator above
Spoken word, causes rift

To honor, "Law of Attraction"
Must be true of heart and soul
To have such a reaction
Without care, to let it all go!

If this be error and upon me proved
Did I really even know this man...?
Was I really ever loved...?
Now on my own, Strong I Stand!

In thy world of darkness lie
With heavy heart I must say... Good-bye

~Cynthia~

Happy Holidays viking...muaah...

I wanted to leave this silliness in here but you were gettin' so serious...

goggles

and onto the sidewalks of the One of a Kind…
they stumble so weary, so bleary, half blind
they bellow in voices that carry outside
and pee anywhere there's a doorway to hide

bidding goodnight they depart the saloon
and lurch toward their homes where they'll sleep until noon
wearing beer goggles they won't sleep alone
but the hookups they form might turn them to stone

when they hit the snooze button and roll into that face
they'll cover it up with an old pillowcase
all steathy attempts to escape will be met
with renewed affection from their erstwhile pet

and so they depart from last evenings floozy
with stomach and legs that are feeling quite woozy
their pick-o-meter's left them flabbergasted
they wish that their fishing pole slumbered uncasted

and so my suessels an end to this fable
just leave your beer goggles at home on the table
and take your wing man or wing woman with you
before you wind up with thing one and thing two

welcome back, old friend.....

internal bleeding

move on without a sound
you've taken what you want from me
I'll see your face around
and you'll see what you want to see

I'll never let you know
how very much you meant to me
I'll show a smile and so
give back the heart you lent to me

and chalk it up to life
and lock that door and hide the key
and someday when it's safe
remember who we tried to be
