Some pretty exciting news first off, I am officially working a series of paid freelance gigs. Turns out there are a multitude of companies in need of ghost written articles on a myriad of topics. The pay is adequate though my name won’t appear on most of the work. Doesn’t matter to me, money is the paramount outcome of this equation. Baby-bird sized hobbles in the right direction. Maybe even adult bird sized! 🙂
One of my all-time favorite pieces to share today. A fun one I half composed in my head while promenading poochy. Upon returning home I was able to recall a morsel with which to reconstruct the majority. Enjoy!
While walking the dog in the rain
On fascinating sights we came
The pinprick drops into the lake
‘Til turgid waters overtake
Rivulets stream down off the leaves
Niagara Falls from out the eaves
Trees still mostly naked provide
Little shelter with which to hide
Huge puddles barricade our way
She leaps better than I these days
Watching clouds from down below
Their fluffy visions proudly show
The smell of rain truly profound
Conflating wet with windy, ground
Fence posts gathering moisture much
Cheap umbrella folds in the clutch
Eventually comes to pass
You lose concern for your drenched ass
Letting go in downpour’s vital
To achieve this poem’s title.
I can still very much picture parts of that walk in my mind. Likely at some point I’ll be recalling them in a pseudo-depressed nostalgic fashion, no doubt in sepia tones. Still, one of those perfect moments in life. An honest shaft of sunlight pierces your own thunder-cloud buttress of self-delusion (not covered until grad-level engineering) for all to be laid bare before you. See who you are at the lowest common denominator and accept and LOVE the flawed, sickly, demi-human strewn aground before you. (S)He’s not thaaat bad. I mean, I wouldn’t go away for a weekend with them but you get it.
I fervently wish you perfect health, unblemished happiness and your desired quantity of cute dudes and/ or chicks.
A broken mind held together by cellophane and some tack.
