Addicted to Stevie Taite


I'm late!
I'm late!
For a very important date!
I planned on sitting home all night
Reading Stevie Taite.

Her wit and whim are priceless,
A smile in every poem,
My friends were shocked, all wondering why,
I suddenly wanted to stay home.

But the problem is now fixed,
I read and am now never alone
I can take PH outside with me
Because now I have a Smartphone

    i've read some of stevie but no taite of late. maybe i should visit her again soon...er or later.

    the only thing i would change is taking the a out of the last line (and i don't mean the a in smartphone
    or in because OR in have) .

    no smartphone do i have.
    my phone's as dumb and i.
    i don't get to read PH much,
    and that's the reason why. thanks for sharing. bri (Report) Reply
