These were the worlds

Here, cup your hands just so,
whispered the clown my father had
once wept for in the courtyard,
tying off his sinew as he coughed
stars into being beneath the canopy
of a tattered bassinet

I, too young to hold these grains
and he too hurried to unpluck
soft barley from the cracked stones
in a court I held as joker, wild
unkepmpt as our summer yard
dried beneath the old swingset.

Yet I have never seen Paris,
nor the columns of the parthenon;
shadows holding catydids in silence 
as I'd like to have breathed in.
My family left castles for dirt mind,
held its trials on creaky porches.

What roads paved over with sand
leaping over rowed hills as I pressed
face first into scents I had forgotten;
The friend once loved, the widowed
now old, the first kiss, the sting
of our stars slipping, lost.

Retarded for Pandora

It wasn't as sexy earlier when I was told about it for some reason.

Now it's the hottest hotness since hot hotness.

Writer's Block: Six-Word Story

Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” He is believed to have called it his greatest literary work ever. Can you write a story in six words?


Return to sender, said the Universe.

Nice foot. I was the rabbit.

He waited, until stars burned out.

Forget for a moment, everything you know.

The Sphinx's riddle unraveled the world.

He bacame glass, sharp and clear.

Fortune favored the meek, virally speaking.

Terror had a new name: Vodka.

Vampires sucked, but so did dying.

I hate my schedule. I'm finally in the position to go do random stuff without concern for a significant other and noone exists after 10pm on a weeknight.

Grawr.

I can haz kitten?

I have decided to bring a little ball of needle-sharp claws and fuzzy fur into my life. I'm not home enough to manage one with health issues, and I'm not interested in young or adult cats. I must haz kitten.

Now to find said kitten. Anyone know of a particular family looking for a good home for an itty bitty kitty?

If not it's cool, I'll just pick one up at a shelter, but I thought I'd ask first, cuz you never know who in my social circle might have a need.
