    'Jake the Hassler'...even your name conjures up the image of someone who catches people off guard and also manages to inspire...a visonary of biting vocabulary...I like your perspectives Jake, and the snippets of insight that throughly entertain the 'thinking persons' sensibilities. Keep it going!

    warmly,
    adrienne ;)

The Rejection Slip

all would-be poets, take note!
proofread that so-called poem you just wrote!
those who aspire for more Famous Days
please steer clear of these clichés:

so what if your heart
beats,
leaps,
bleeds,
weeps,
throbs,
breaks,
soars,
aches,
cries
sighs
skips,
or dies?
hearts are ever in a state of perpetual disrepair
we don’t need you to tell us

who cares if your soul
tears,
flips,
fades,
rips,
shimmers,
dances,
glistens,
prances,
bounces,
flounces,
shivers,
or trounces? ...

Lignano

those sweet summer days
we would walk hand-in-hand
swim together in the sunlight
and write our names in the sand

now the sunshine has disappeared
all the skies are gray
i walk alone and watch the waves
wash our names away
