Sunday Scribbling #104


The link is in the margin. Prompts are much too left-brained for this righty, but I likes the site. Generally speaking, the topic is "Do you believe in life beyond earth?" It reminded me, tangentially of course, about William Sloane Coffin's reversal of the usual-suspect question, "Do you believe in God?" Instead, WSC mused the question, "Does God believe in us?"

Without further ado, I give you:

[Is It Ever]

grassy knolled elvis
hoffa on the box

amelia making pralines at the five and dime

JayCee out the back door
Tooker Gomberg mighta known betta
if he could

Glenn Miller & Saint-Exupéry with their
fiddle-sticks in heaven—
who wouldn’t abduct a ‘bone?

Steely Dan for nearly twenty years:
Eagles, EasyBeats, Erstwhiles
& all the others
on the astral
reunion tours, buses
at the gate

Rosemary Tonks,
Azaria Chamberlain—
All of them in
the chummy lounge.

Blue dog’s out there, no?
Crooning Georgie half to sleep:
We’ve all been known to wander
at least once

or twice

to take a peek.

Love the grassy knolled elvis. Guess he does deserve a spot to himself, far from the madding buses at the gate.

The ending rhyme sounds conclusive. You've convinced me. There are signs of life on this earth after all, but only because those beyond have willed it thus.

Come on over and claim your award, by the way.

I was hoping that perhaps a few others might be convinced that we're all still around.

Congratulations again on your Big Vowel. And thanks again for mine.

The way you personalize space is clever and makes a charming read!

Tumblewords: Thank you for kind words. I took a visit over your way and see that you are now gainfully UN-employed. My congratulations. Love what you said about your left brain turning right: couldn't agree more. Best wishes to you.
