poem: chalk it up

chalk it up to lorem ipsum
chalk it up to gypsy tweets
chalk it up to dismal science
chalk it up to inner petes
chalk it up to lunar babies
chalk it up to sideways sneaks
chalk it up to deep fried me & you
chalk it up to the darkened boundary
chalk it up to light in the attic
chalk it up to calcified dramatic
chalk it up to simon's garfunkel
chalk it up to nana's carbuncle
chalk it up to the amateur schism
chalk it up to emile's paroxysm
chalk it up to sweet sweetback
chalk it up to everybody's big mac
chalk it up to the wall-eyed symposium
chalk it up to manuel's pandemonium
chalk it up to here there & everywhere
chalk it up to carla's unnerwear
chalk it up to the reverend's dispensation
chalk it up to the cardinal's decaffeination
chalk it up to the intimate rosary
chalk it up to the notarized rotary
in your ear the mind will be displayed
in your heart the day will be inveighed
seek out the venture on bended knee
all that's right is what you'll see . . .

You're doing an awful lot of sidewalk sketching, bro. Love chalking up nana's carbuncles and the cardinal's decaffeination, but you gotta watch out when you're chalking up Carla's unnerwear!! She might not be too happy!

Very cool post!

more form to this than your usual but it has a cool rhythm to it and a mellowishness that flows with the music. I could imagine it being read by James Earl Jones :)

T: Out of the loop, I am! Thanks for the comment. I'll certainly take your concern for Carla's unnerthings under advisement. Best to you.

Dee: I like your Darth reading idea. Funny how form will at times insist its way on in . . .
