poem: icarus days

uncertain farms
fuzzy taco train tracks up

& down the jelly highways

vagabond tumeric infernal

rondo: i ask at the window

the answers say no, as

if the delectation is ribbed

beyond belief,

a casual dress day all

down the six, the seven,

the eight ways of pity,

your western elegance

fights down the need

to wander, to vary

the myths and posters

of icarus days

angling with fortitude best

left unmade: watching

the lines piss away

the wherewithals,

the snaffer blooms,

the quenched beasts in their

Trojan replicas -

save the fifth place ribbons

for itty bitty classtime,

i've called round

the green tangents,

you've gone round the bend

we've digitized the very best.

I love that the label is vichyssoie!! It just provides that exclamation point to a delightful outflow!! Icarus days when one flies too high and gets burned with fifth place.

The juxtaposition of Trojan and itty-bitty brought up some interesting mental pictures... best left unsaid on a family blog.

And I have to wonder WHY the tacos are fuzzy? Producing penecillin? So spicy that your vision is blurry with tears?

But you have indeed digitized the very best, so vichyssoise to you, bro!!

well, farming is an uncertain business and most of us feel our wings singed at least once or twice. Vichyssoise, though, is not such a bad prize for a fifth place ribbon. I'll take mine with a side of that vagabond infernal rondo -- sounds interesting. Good times here, every green tangent...

Teresa: Family blog? (:-D)

Those fuzzies come via North Tejana Cindy, who was lusting for access to her Fuzzy Taco Shoppe during this past week's wintry taco-depriving storm.

Anno: Uncertain Farms is the name of a local salsa purveyor, introduced to me by friend John, via a Facebook picture. If nothing else, we at least know that The Social Network is good for poetry prompts . . .

I can see a little of that rondo in the paella.
