Image via Magpie Tales Alma she, the practical godmother  of re purposed filled lives did so, not out of fad or fashion or deep cosmic guilt but rather frugality borne out of horse drawn necessity with Alma one was never allowed to simply "be" a spoon could not just stir a kettle had to do more than just boil one trick extravagances had no business in her business for Alma "just doing your bit" was an unforgivable sin and a grotesque waste of limitless talent she eschewed the flock trotted superhighway and blazed her own way in inventive fashion the future sewn and soldered  formed from  whatever she had on hand waiting to be reborn and twisted  drifting from the past Rene ~ July 2013


whoever can speak  without disturbing the peace  whoever can walk without stirring the past  whoever can listen without divining wisdom whoever can love without embracing scars whoever can think without considering the future cannot ever truly  entirely be Rene ~ July 2013

my love  runs on banana peels and deadlines  scribbled on toasted origami matchbooks  then tossed  in a junk drawer until crunchy it's an acquired taste Rene ~ July 2013

not feeling so  much  of a  muchness anymore I can't  fake the connections I won't have the  discussions my  thoughts outdated  my  words a dead language  rabidly  stabbing at  tabloid typos am i losing  you? writing with red ink  on the arms of my t-shirt buy  the milk or pay the rent  Rene ~ 2013

good shoes

Public domain image via the day i found my ways i caught myself in a tangle tightly twined  around a forkful of  spaghetti from a can't  just pullin' the wool  over easy under the radar love, life, and my pursuits; a hapless sock thread ensnared by a tack on the threshold  unwinding, revealing a novice habit trail from door to table, to chair, to bed just livin' but barely breaking a sweat  smokin' a bowl of dead ends Is that all there is? Peggy Lee, blinked lookin' for  high bars in low places forcin' a smile, though her eyes ordered a double some things are better left unsaid but winked at?...hell yeah I caught your act, you charlatan  I say, strippin' off my socks  I know your ways You ought to play  out in the mud in your good shoes  maybe, someday Finally Rene~July 2013 For 100 Word Song The song prompt was Patti Smith's

lady la la liberty

Supermoon, New York, Julio Cortez via Magpie Tales I look at that moon like it's another quarter slipped in  the smiling notch of  my bank book i can hardly lift  all that hope i make gravy wells in clouds for all my crazy dreams but my champagne heart has beggar's  arrhythmia and i stubbed my toe  on a horny back toad how them golden slippers ever gonna fit me, now  go an' howl down a mongrel rainstorm up that yellow brick road  Rene ~ July 2013 For Magpie Tales
