BLURT #1 11/21/20
Rainbows and sunsets
admire each other
Quite dark and not
quite dark are the same dark!
Right now is now,
but just now
was a while ago!
My hair is thinning!
It’s about time!
I can follow rules but not
hard and fast ones!
Don’t burn your bridges—
What I lack in character
I make up for in characteristics
Poems don’t need to rhyme,
or be written!
The two most important days are today and
the other day!
Irrational demands are validated
by blind acquiescence!
If you mispronounce and misspell the same word
is it even a word!?!
When I officially quit juggling, I still juggled
behind my back!
Where here ends and there begins
is neither here nor there!
My writing is ignored, or all but ignored, but someday it will be forgotten, or all but forgotten!
Madness plus eloquence equals genius!
The easiest planet to see with the naked eye is
Sorry, but all my energy
is pent-up at the moment!
Soon is agonizing, but any minute now is
Either this is all a dream, or
I need to get some sleep!
Act as though you were a slightly better version of yourself!
Watching paint dry is boring, but paper towel drying a countertop
I refuse to dignify your remark
by restating it in a more dignified manner!
On second thought I think I’ll rethink
Making nice things
makes things nice!
God loves us, but not as much as we’re led to believe!
I weighed my options
and exercised my options
and weighed them again
and they weighed less!
Some people won’t listen to reason,
but try telling them that!
Most of my ideas go right down the toilet, but some
need a plunger!
A person golfing alone is a one-it!
Don’t let doing something not worth the bother
Examples of the infinity tense include:
and so on, etcetera, and blah blah blah!
To get more sleep, fall asleep sooner and wake up later!
Going for a walk is like walking around
but better organized!
I like when people talk about me when I’m not there!
It means I’m not there!
My nervous system
