i like to eat almonds,
something new. i like to collect,
Rocks, always have. i enjoy finding Peace,
in my old home, my first one [alone with my mom]
a trailer the size of Barbie’s house;
you know the one from 1972?
yeah, that one. i found Comfort,
in the next one, it was fancy – had a fireplace,
and a vaulted ceiling in the living room.
i tend to fall asleep, while watching murder –
mysteries, i have an obsession with serial killers,
not because i like them – i used to fear i was one,
only because i did not understand my brain.
i ate canned spinach once,
it slithered down my throat and i almost gagged.
i felt nothing like Popeye.
i talk to cows whenever i see them,
they understand me –
i know they do and sometimes they do say, Moo.
i was silly once, i wrote a poem yesterday or a 100 years-ago,
i cannot truly recall, but my toes are painted hot pink –
not because i like it because my little girl does.
i read The Raven at least a thousand times,
probably more, i ask the crows how they feel about it,
when they come around – they caw, that’s all. i read,
“An Invisible Sign of My Own” like it was the bible –
it kind of was for me at the time. i see the virtual You’s
in color, it would probably be different in person –
in person i would be awkward and stumble over my words,
and would say things like, “Oh, my GOSH, I love your shoes!”
or parachute pants if you happened to be wearing some.
i ate some almonds that was new;
i can’t stand nuts except a few – now.
i can eat cashews, but they are not exactly a nut,
i dislike peanut butter very much,
but i do love that my little girl’s toes,
match the hot pink mess that blare upon mine.
a dragonfly, came by and nodded with approval –
yesterday around 2:00 pm.
I tried to come up with some sort of “List” type of poem, but my mind is racing with tons of thoughts. I decided to write out a list of my thoughts in a matter of five minutes and this is what I got!
I am enjoying the prompt from dVerse today. I was fascinated with all of the creativity that I read and plan on reading more once my day settles. Thank you Victoria for sharing a poetry style I did not know about and for this great prompt!
