Sunday Scribblings #Something: New Leaf


Eve’s, Adam’s
Perhaps even Lauren’s, maybe
Valkyrie’s, collect enough
We’ll tree ourselves
Into the new year,
Beering the way
Down the days of attitude:
Through March we’ll obviate
The tomes, query
The snared rummies,
Scotch tape the valuables
To wrist, sleeve, cowl—
Elevator music our
Prozac (and prosaic) identities,
While Van and Gordon
Smile their way
Through the Roxannes

& Glorias
Of negative space, splitting
Adam’s apples
In serpentine fashion,
L.A. diet hounds weighing in
With opinions best left
In the velvet underground.
These are the days
Of time-managed
Blissful wonder,
Passions accrued,
Despairing interest rates,
Vigor in the nines,
Aspirant hopscotch,
Basal temperatures in the variant climes.

the After Christmas sales and post holiday dieting with the resolutions that we will all abandon before spring?
I like the line aspirant hopscotch and down the days of attitude, and especially the elevator music with our prozac/prosaic identities :)

This is fun. I, too, liked "elevator music our / prozac (and prosaic) identities". It just sang out to me in a schmaltzy kind of tone. And I also liked that the opinions of LA diet hounds are best left in the velvet underground!! Beer in the new year!

San: From the look of things over at your place, things seem to be wheying - happily - downright silly. Good on ya.
