In keeping with the Heart Month theme, I decided to pen my first poem since my college days. I've been inspired by Natasha Gdansk (the lost beat)--I especially love her poem Cockamamie--and Tom Andrews (deranged poet/flash fiction/short story writer, and staunch defender of the classic martini)--here is his latest poem, off the coast.
Um, don't read their poems before you read mine. After, okay? :^)
Anyhow, here is the initial feedback about my poem....
"Interesting piece of poetry."
"It was rather traumatic, but I love the happy ending."
"Are you sure this isn't about coca-cola?"
So, without further ado, here is...... Timeline of a Heart Attack.
Timeline of a Heart Attack
Blub glub glub
Drip drip slip
Flaky, buttery slub
Dire fire, spiral
Twist and stuck
Stagger to step
Crunch and rip
Flow, pump, rumbling banks
Swish and swash
Pip pip zing
You're speechless! Hee hee heeeeeeee.....
On the reading front, I just finished a quickie re-read of Dark Legend, and I am finally ready to start my new pile of books. Finally!
Don't forget....tonight is the big show-down on Top Chef! GO PAUL!
