Spring Poetry Slam #6: Man Up?

Shut your stupid mouth.
My hands have cut cord, buried child.
Yours hold a cell phone.


  1. Ouch. Ow. Deep feelings have run into vapid-man-with-a- cell phone. Which should, in my book, be illegal. (Vapid man, I mean)

    I often have a similar reaction when I'm in crowds surrounding by really stupid obnoxious people. I just want to scream, 'Get a clue!'

  2. a lady on the bus from the Metro station was on the cell phone as she boarded...and ALL the way to the airport and ALL the way to hotel, and into the hotel and as she waited in line to check in.....WHILE she checked in (I was behind her), and as I got on the elevator to go to my room, she was sitting in the lobby STILL talking! I don't have that many words in my HEAD!!!

  3. Most haiku are prissy. This isn't. In a good way.

    A haiku is supposed to capture a moment perfectly. This one does.

  4. A side you don't show much...


"Let your laws come undone
Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."

-'The Hair Song', by Black Mountain

Tell me what is in your heart...
