Her Brains, Wit, Joy, Smile And Laughing Eyes — Remembering Crushing, Part 2: Romantic Blogging Haiku

January 9, 2014

After I posted this Haiku: Remembering Crushing, the woman who inspired it noted that I cut off her face. (I did it to protect her identity). She jokingly commented: “Umm, do you realize you chopped off my head in the picture you posted? lol! Guess it wasn’t my face you were gazing at!”
That, in turn, inspired this poem … and the full photo:

It wasn't her shiny-dressed body he'd always crushed on

She’d thought it was her/
nearly perfect body he’d/
crushed on. It wasn’t.

You could have met me, yet … (apologies to Michael Buble’): Romantic IMprov Email Poem

October 4, 2010

You could have met me, yet/
there was something you just don’t get./

The wit, the comedy, the intelligence, the flair,/
the romance, the courtesy, it’s still all there,/
like a gerkin and pastrami, smelly,/
straight from Katz’s Deli./
You coulda been “having what she’s having!”,/
and it woulda been served with no grabbin’./
You coulda won your heart’s bet./
You coulda been served morning lattes/
with dark chocolate./

With Mr. Buble,/
we coulda danced
and romanced/
to his latest romantic duet … /
and yet….

Here we sit. /
Another week’s come and gone./
It’s the pits/
what you haven’t done/
to have met/
me yet.

Since when is Sarcasm good? A revolutionary conTEXTing poem

February 17, 2009

I grew up learning 2b sarcastic./
I’m really good at it.

My ability 2 fight/
a battle of wits/
with half-armed nits/
was a delight!/

But in hindsight/
I ask: so what?
