when the world speaks to you in poetry

May 31, 2010 Posted by gretchen

a foggy dusk of what and was

His whistle.

Where I belong.
And I remember how the wind tasted.
Queensland winter prick.
Where people start to phone in sick.
I called to let you know.
I haven’t been feeling well lately.
There is no skin on my knees.
Left to be torn.

oh… you ‘blog’?

May 25, 2010 Posted by gretchen

Somewhere over the evolution of humanhood the word ‘blog’ was invented. Apparently it stems from the word ‘weblog’ that floated down from some other far away land of ‘ummm… i don’t know… what do you think we should call it?’s.

Like ‘tapirs’, for example.
