Tighty Whitey Day


Sitting alone
feeling stand offish
everyone here,
a clique or crew.

I am pale no color or tone
smell like urine and tide
surrounded by gear
just taking my cue.

The light comes in up high
blinding or inviting
should I stake my claim,
but Joe Boxer snarls my way.

I thought I might cry
though nothing exciting
nothing but shame
once again not my day

The week is at an end
The crew is all but gone,
though fruit is looming
with a new color and style.

Alone now, here comes the light again
you must be putting me on.
Nutty needs grooming
I tuck in nutty so nutty won't look vile

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
