Epilogue to Valentine’s Day Sonnet: an 11:59 pm Romantic IMprov Sonnet

Epilogue on Valentine’s Day at 11:59 pm

Now that this romantic day
has come and quickly passed,
And I, delaying, didn’t say
what I should, while the sun light cast,

Permit me
to tell you
my heart, true!

Let me at last say
what I should have said
during Valentine’s Day,
before the sun bled, dead!

All this long, alone, romantic day through,
I have thought of and missed only you.

Let me be the first: A Valentine’s Day IMprov Sonnet

February 14, 2009

Valentine's Day bouquetLet me be the first
to wish you,
in rhyme and verse,
a day romantic and true.

Let me be the one
to unveil, on this day,
like the red dawning sun,
a radiant bloom’d bouquet!

Though not of cheerful daffodil,
nor lilacs (smelled, seen, not heard!)
Not of sweetest rose, nor orchid’s fragrant thrill:
This flowery bunch is made of words!

For though these words* new from fingers start,
they’ve long been growing within my heart!


VD Sucks: a Romantic Poem Rant plus a followup ConTEXTing poem

February 7, 2009

You remember the anticipation
of the annual celebration!

Was it a while ago today
Ya think?!?
that deception
drove you to the brink.

You hate
You wait
what good will come
out of anticipa …


But nothing ever does.
She or he goes north,
of course,
without you,

“Gotta get away”
(that’s what they say!)
To do
to …
you know.
What lovers do.

Bored. Walk.
Fog night air.
at / in VS underwear.

Do that thang
they should do.
She’ll blissfully sing
without you.

With husband,
wife, lover,
ex-boy/girl friend.
Off northside, south end,
east or west coast
they go,
leaving you empty hand-
ed … almost.

Yeah, V.D. sucks.
Like a disease;
you know they will …
play and toil.
Just not with thee.

Followup, Feb. 17, 2009, 9 p.m. – a ConTEXTing Poem
Valentine weekend-ed/
just as I suspected./
She didn’t e-mail, text or write./
No call to say goodnight./
Do I feel rejected?/
Or just replaced?/
In any case/
I wait!

(additional addendum):
Later on
came the call:
“I’m glad we can still be friends!”
That’s all.
