Welcome everyone and thank you for coming by. Sorry it's been so long between postings as I have been half scattered working on "things" and trying to breathe in between. Things will smooth out soon as I get everything in a production mode. I want to say again that anyone can comment on this blog. Some have said they can't, but I don't see how that's possible. I've tried numerous browsers and have no problem accessing the blog like a normal reader. But either way...I hope you enjoy and feel compelled to leave a comment. Thank you very much...all of you.

"The Sign Said"

I wish I could…
Just wear this happy meal face all the time
Looks clean huh? Un-scathed?

This porcelain death mask of comedy has cracks,
too many to see
I'm a trained puppet of misery

Always smiling...still
Torn inside
Was never said before
Just angry
Because of the spoils of life?

C'est la vie?
Savoir faire?
C'est la guerre!
I just fix eat it most times

Raged road kill caviar
Monkeh brain briolette'
Chimp jewelry
No Chinese food please?
I hate sum dum guy

Gather it
Mix it
Spice it up with a little life
Cook it
Eat it
Be careful how you share it too

You could poison an unsuspecting soul...sucker
And not even realize
Like radiator fluid juice
What a gamble

It's all on the table now though
Cards laid out
Straight poker of the heart
A royal flush...Woo hoot! Pay me dammit!!

But it went right down the drain
Drain-owed...almost like orange anti-freeze
Sweet/rancid cerebellum death
The recipe for thoughtful meals?

Happy meals of course
Ice creamed cones
Apple pies in a test tube
Healthy food?
Conservative tripe!
Tripe?! What is that?! ”Moooooo!”

Shouldn't eat the fast food of fools
Take out in the land of no return
The price of an ice creamed cone?
Cheap right?
Sold your soul for a lick then huh?

One purchase per customer

“No Refunds Allowed!!”

Did you know there is a sir-charge on straws now?
That's what the sign said
More Mickey D's Burger Doodles Cap'n D's
Extra charges for condiments too
Don't even have to say please


Is this even affordable?
I think they R.S.V.P. now
Have it your way?!

Fuck you!!!

I think I'll go to "The Golden Corral"…ahhh, Heaven
I love a buffet
All you can eat
Cookies too
I can have 5 ice creame' cones
For the price of 1 if I want…MMmmmmm!

That's what the sign says dammit!
And all the cookies you can eat…remember?

Now that's a bargain.

one thing i have taken notice in and on myself is congruence. there is a line in here:
"I'm a trained puppet of misery
Always smiling...still"
when i see someone hurting and lonely and they say "im alright", with a smile, sometimes, most times i can see it in their eyes...the pain behind the cracks in the warpaint. the incongruousness.

this poem caught me that way right from the start except you pull no punches, this is a great, transparent message of sad. excellent.

06/18/2012 16:50

Very astute sister, yeah, I pull no punches for sure, and so true, the eyes cannot truly lie. Unless you're trained real well. ;) I love that you felt something out of this Sherri, it's nice having someone bounce their thoughts off of me. <3

06/13/2012 23:20

Damn those cravings. Putting on that Happy Meal Face sometimes feels like a lie and it's easier to just hang the 'closed' sign. *sighs* (((hugs dollface)))
