DON'T JUST STAND THERE


















Love me like a fist
Spray me like a skunk in heat
Leave on a cruise liner to India
Put your hands together in prayer
Make a bee-line for the nearest exit
Tell three people what you did in the bathroom on September 17, 1982
Pay your bills before the grace period ends
Have lunch with a guy named Shlomo
Slap your ass and admit that it's real
Be a mean mama jama and spin like a wheel
Toss your hat and your cookies into the ring
Groove on the wonder of EV-ER-Y-THING

  1. This is interesting Tim...makes me a bit curious....I always thought how our foreign guests looked at Indians -- and spoke with some on train journeys...one of them said "food is interesting, but can't have it" :)

  2. Wow that is so cool Timoteo, you can write anything, this is kind of jazzy and 'in your face' type of poetry, I'm very impressed!

  3. DEVIKA,
    I LOVE the food, but now I know enough not to order a curry dish "hot." I get it mild and that's plenty spicy for me! LOL

    LORRAINE,
    Thanks...it seems the only place where I got "rhythm" is in my poetry :)
