Rhyme of the Ancient D8r: Romantic ConTEXTing Poetry

May 2, 2010

Which is greater/
and mo’ cooler?/
2b a L8r hater,/
a L8r dater,/
a L8r waiter,/
a diva drooler,/
or a smart girl fooler?/
The answer, 2 me,/
is both sad and scary./

Thoughts After a Discussion at Karaoke with a Drunk Woman About Her New Boyfriend: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poetry

May 2, 2010

Chemistry may lead/
2 reaction,/
but not always 2 yer need:/
2 the 1./

Tho scary,/
it’s so,/
not of fairy/
tale, but from those who know./

Love learns./
Chemistry burns.

Interested in Being Interested: Revolutionary Email Poetry

March 25, 2010

What’s on my mind?
You.
At least to find out about
You.

A good way to do
that
is to IM
or chat.

Doesn’t have to be
Yahoo.
Any IM thingy
will do.

Gmail.
MSN
I suppose a call
now and then
would do
too.

Or texting.
Or I guess email
would work as well.
From what I can tell.

What are we looking for?
Pen pals?
Friends?
Super-friends?
More?
Lovers?
Companions until the bitter end?

If you were interested in a guy,
and you emailed him,
and you didn’t know why
but on a whim
he didn’t email back for … several days,
would you forget him?

I’m movin’ on! Tough!
Or would you think:
Nah, he’s just not interested enough
to jump off the brink.

Maybe the real question we all have to ask us
is this: how interested
in being interested
are we…
really?
