Hi everybody I’m kicking off NaPoWriMo with a funny Poem. If you’d like to join the fun 30 days of poetry here’s the link http://www.napowrimo.net/

My life – a knickknack worthless- series of bad spellings,

a bunch of misfires, hootings and shootings

blank on the page

Good morning you fool- you fool!

Failing even on Grammarly.

Double down my character, personified

Looney & Tooney

Porky the pig/ Elmyra’s got the gig

try out for the the circus you- silly- writer-you

“I just wanted to love’m”

and squeeze my life

into miniature size abundance,

play the dozens on more time

but- but

“that’s ALL Folks”

Random Acts Of Me: (no judgment please)

One: I thought I had jumped, into my novel but maybe my novel has sullied my good name -writer. Ha! I say it with a smile. My novel laughs back at me, slaps me around 3:am in the morning. Tells my mother jokes -there was this girl who thought she should write, and then she realized I was her mother, what’s more real the dream or me…

Two: As I thought I would study, learn all the I could about the great spirit- the great God/ but maybe I have learned nothing.

Three: My most fearful thought, is that the world would catch me with my pants down. The belief beyond it, (my darkness out shines my light sometimes ) that truly, it is has happen.

I was in college going through the worst of times, and so my skin tried to get up and walk out on me. Ugh! I darted out class, ran to the nearest bathroom. Pulled down my pants, not going into a stall. My bad! I had to scratch my legs.

And as I was in deep relief of all the stress that college brings. Two girls walked in. Caught off guard I hurried, falling all over that restroom in pieces. Picking up what was left. I washed my hands/dashed out, in tears and laughter, boy o’boy it had to be me (flopping around trying to pull my pants up)

and now you know what a klutz I am…
