show the weather where you like to put your kite


'this is garbage, give me a trash bag'
i give you two, because i want to see how
much music you can stuff into a dixie cup

you want me to react to your new song
like a 10,000 degree sunburn on the 4th of July-
i want you to react to me laying down next to you
in a body bag,

but instead i say the coffee cake is burning
and the ceiling fan is freaking out

'whiplash, baby, that's all it is-
you forgot how much i love to hear the wind'

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
