7 May



It sneaks in, pouring like warm honey
through the cracks of
my window shade.

The city streets stretch–
and slowly liven as
icy dew forms
upon my soul,

for I too must rise
and shine for another day of
absolute horseshit at literally the most


Fine, sunrise,
you relentless nag.
I’m up,

but I swear I’ll quit today
if that bubbly,
know-it-all bitch, Denise,
doesn’t stop squawking about her wedding.

    Now that’s poetry I can relate to!
    Many a sunrise has been ruined by leading into a workday.

    Oh, that Denise. Will her antics ever end?


    • La La May 7, 2014 at 9:13 am #

      Never. God help us when she has a baby.

    Lovely poem, La. Give in to the dark side.


    • La La May 7, 2014 at 9:19 am #

      Haha, thanks!

    That’s the spirit! Up and at’em kiddo. (And if she keeps on and on, whip out that creditcard and send yourself some ridiculous amount of flowers from a secret admirer. That oughta change the subject.)

    Dude. You killed it with that. I thought it was going to be all deep and shit. But no. Just no. Loved it. I don’t know Denise but I hate her now. Have a good day at work!


    • La La May 7, 2014 at 12:33 pm #

      Thanks, dude! It’s going ok so far. She must not be feeling well (ha!)

          I’ll look into it. I was wondering how you did that.

              Thank you, just did it. Get a job!! Ok, back to work I go.

    Beautiful, poetic words, La La. Great mix of sorrow and the beauty of a sunrise.


  7. gingerfightback May 7, 2014 at 10:36 am #

    The iambic pacing is wonderful, thoughtful and sticks it up Denise’s bottom!


    • La La May 7, 2014 at 12:59 pm #

      Thank you. Someone else commented and said it was sorrowful–so I’m glad you understood what was happening there.

    So tell me more about this wedding. It sounds fascinating!


    • La La May 7, 2014 at 12:31 pm #

      WELL it’s a sunset rustic barn wedding, something about pictures in a cornfield, blah blah blah that’s usually when I zone out.


  9. Carrie Rubin May 7, 2014 at 10:50 am #

    I love how you went from serene and calm to bored, angry warrior. Perfect!


    • La La May 7, 2014 at 12:28 pm #

      Thanks. That’s how I feel inside. πŸ˜€


  10. Katie May 7, 2014 at 11:49 am #

    HA!! Love it.

  11. Amy Reese May 7, 2014 at 12:51 pm #

    Oh, not the wedding talk! That’s the worst, and I’m sure I did it too. This made me laugh, La La!


    • La La May 7, 2014 at 1:01 pm #

      Thanks, Amy! If I was having a wedding I’d probably do it too, just not as loudly and boastfully.


  12. Pigeon Heart May 7, 2014 at 1:03 pm #

    Ha. I shall call you- Rumi.
    But srsly. That was great.


  13. Maggie O'C May 7, 2014 at 5:24 pm #

    I think that is one of the best poems I have ever read.


  14. rheath40 May 7, 2014 at 7:38 pm #

    Tell Denise to shut the fuck up! ❀


  15. David Stewart May 8, 2014 at 9:20 am #

    That’s a great shift in tone from the sleepy, velvety description at the beginning to the griping at the end. πŸ™‚ I love it.


  16. Andrew May 15, 2014 at 9:04 pm #

    Man… This is really good. You should do a book or something.


    • La La May 15, 2014 at 11:37 pm #

      Eh, nah. Books are overrated.

      Liked by 1 person

      • Andrew May 16, 2014 at 9:51 am #

        Oh yeah. Good point.


  17. Trent Lewin May 19, 2014 at 10:42 pm #

    Dude. This is awesome. Great set up and pay-off. Let me know if you need Denise roughed up, I can send the Mounties, they’re not too busy right now.


    • La La May 19, 2014 at 11:30 pm #

      Ha! What do you think if a did a book of poems like this?


      • Trent Lewin May 20, 2014 at 7:20 am #

        I’d be okay with that, though I always like to read things that are mixed up a bit too. I like your romantic poems, too. Mixing it up, for me, tends to increase the impact of a change in style.


        • La La May 20, 2014 at 7:57 am #

          Thanks, I always really appreciate your input.
