6 a.m. Heart Ablation: Revolutionary Blogging Free Verse

November 16, 2014

My heart
is hyper-active.
Didn’t you know that?
At about 6 a.m. tomorrow
Dr. Wang
will run a catheter near
there,
up,
into my heart.

He will scar me
from the inside
so the dance
that my heart has done
for decades
will stop,
and I’ll finally
have
rhyyyyyy
thummmm.
(Beat.
Beat.)
Doo whop
Beat).

Can you imagine me
with more energy
and life
than I have
already?

That’s what “they”
say.

The only question I have is this:
Is this the best way
to let people know?Pericardium lift-- turn of the century heart surgery

Why We Dance / Dance With Me: Revolutionary IMprov Free Verse Poem

November 25, 2013

She said “I haven’t danced in so long,
I may have forgotten how.”
I said:

We don’t dance for audiences.
We don’t dance for the DJ.
We don’t dance for wallflowers.
We don’t dance for judges.

We dance with each other.
We dance to release energy.
We dance to feel joy.
We dance to express our feelings.
We dance for ourselves.

Dance with me.

What To Eat When We First Meet: Revolutionary IMprov Poem

October 7, 2010

Every date comes complete/
with the question of what to eat/
when we first meet.

We could go in earlier;/
check out dives near the theater./
There’s always Thai/
that we could try./
Or good BBQ,/
Or hamburgers, too!

We could hop /
to a local coffee shop,/
or even Starbucks,/
Seattles Best, or Tully’s (yuck!)

We could park it/
by the local market,/
and in their food case see/
if there’s weird salads or pitas in their deli./
And we could sit out (unless it’s cold and dark)/
and munch /
our lunch /
in the local urban park.

Or head to the nearby /
giant court of food!/
So many choices to try! /
And they’re all good!/

OR we could just/
avoid all the fuss/
you and me/
and eat each other’s /
energy.
