camping with carlo rossi:
in which our heroine finds a leech on her ankle and gets falling-down drunk with Tracey at Namekus Lake.

in the consuming dark
I lose both
balance and shoe

tentscape plurality
bodies insulated
possessions encapsulated

we bested you
you laughed last

when gods awake
they must have
coffee, bacon

oh, duplicitous day
sun-obscuring grey
no match for she-wolves

now it's done
everything points south
for girls and geese

I didn't see any bars. Or bears. But it was beautiful! Except for the leech. Smells great out there.

oh you really did find a leech? for some reason I alwasy think everything is a metaphore, I have been reading way too much Yann Martel lately I guess.
thats funny because i got my ONE and only leech at that very same place, i wonder if at the same camp site...
and it was JUST after shawn said : is there leeches in these waters? and chad said
"no there isnt."
and i looked down in horror OMG YES THERE IS!! And then screamed like a girl and ran out of the water refusing to let even one pinky toe be re-submurged. I dont like leeches, they are right up there with tics. UGH.

Daily Haiku from you-know-who:

Plummeting stomach
Lifted heart
Tomorrow, my salvation

Inspired by too much information on various blogs.

I've just learned that the rule for haiku is 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables. I don't like rules much, but I guess...

Your lovely little psuedo-haikus remind me of an offshoot of modernism us wanna-be-literary-types refer to as the imagist movement: Pound. Lawrence. Eliot. In particular, my fave imagist poem by William Carlos William:

so much depends

a red wheel

glazed with rain

beside the white

Thank you, Lisa, for giving me an opportunity to play English teacher for one quick moment. Quite fun. I miss it.
