Who's driving? G ta L
'n J he says pop'n a
scorched almond into
his mouth, try'n on
his ginger scarf 'n
think'n of owl yrs 'n
a love affair in far
west Africa.
I could nae last the tennis.
Was nae e'en a starter.
I went ta bed
and in a dream
was wearin a red garter.
How about
Fried mashed potato patty,
Fried beans and celery,
Poached pink Tasmanian salmon
repoached in soup de lettuce,
and tahini?
I puts I mirror
between the 'I's of
4.I.I4 2 make
I mirror-image palindrome.
I can't wait 4 8.I.I8
when I won't need I
4 that I 2 make I!
Algorhythmic Rafa v.
blithe Roger is a
robot v. a careless
kit. Wavrinka to win.
I like more how he's
hittin'. I think
he'll beat the robot
but not the kitten.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
