Open Link Night Week 96...

dVerse Poets is giving free rein to creativity in this poetic adventure.  Your subject, your style, your creation...enjoy the contributions from many.
Two weeks of  reflections
Entertained
By a Greg Iles page turning thriller
Iced with Tiger's Curse
And Water For Elephants

A week plus two with illness
And pills with allergic reactions
And probing needles
Finished by misaligned back
And pockets full of pain

Free style nonsense
Patterned after insanity
Lay on pages
Crying out to be dissected
And critiqued

Many will gallantly try to find
Beauty and balance in these lines
Of purely crafted nonsense
And say, "Oh, how beautiful"
While I ice pack my ass

Waiting for the pain meds
To kick in.
Chocolate
Caffeine
And Kindness make it tolerable.

Chocolate, caffeine, and kindness ---- wonderful prescription for all kinds of ills.

Feel better soon.

Ice pick in the ass - ha,ha had to laugh on that one. Hopefully you will feel better real soon - a dose of kindness, a smothering of chocolate and the first caffeine kick of the day should help. Take care kiddo, hope you are feeling better today.

Sorry you are feeling bad!

Sandra said...

i was going to email you this morning, i thought something was wrong, my email is empty without you. so sorry to hear about all this... and your prose tells the whole story well and in a few words. did you hurt your back, were you pushing that wheel barrow? or building a barn, or climbing on ladders? I know you well.....

Caffine chocolate and kindness have got to be the best medicine!

That is one hell of a poem. I like how nearly abstract you are getting, but still are getting reality across.

Linda Rogers said...
