BETWEEN THE LINES



Hey
I dunno how to tell you this
but your poem sucks
and so do you

Ha ha
you know I'm kidding, right?
I'm a real kidder, ya know

Oh, and that souffle you made
the other night for the potluck
you BURNT it
and it tasted like shit!

Aw...go on...you know me...
it was DELICIOUS

And while we're at it
I've been meaning to mention that
YOU
have been outlasting your
DEODORANT
if you get what I mean

Ha ha
oh man
I'm such a kidder
a regular Don Rickles in cheap clothing

You know you always smell like a rose

Anyway
great to see you
and hey (whispering in ear)
don't let this get out but...

Your poem sucks
and so do you!
(ha ha)

    1. One day I'll post the question: Would you rather have a sucky poem and be a smelly person, or have a smelly poem and be a sucky person?

  4. __ Sometimes, 'tis better to leave a 'vacuuming' thought that 'siphons' the readers' imaginations.

    a poem
    'draws' in all thought
    and 'sponges' into realms
    imagined by those 'taunting' words
    bards 'void'

    __ Well, that sups! Smiles, _m

    1. Thank you so much! I had a clothespin on my nose as I was writing it.

  6. I love the childlike voice in this poem and the boyish humour, although some of the sarcasm is quite sharp. But who is Don Rickles?
