but aren't they all random?



A Pocketful of Poesy was a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog* up until the great derail of 2013. The impossibly-high standard of quality proved impractical to keep up, without a book deal. But don't take my word for it: click RANDOM and judge for yourself! And feel free to offer your critique.
*based on poem rate for calendar years 2009-2012. Also, kidding about the book deal.

an end of one-upmanship

You know what else? I want to get open-heart
surgery
with a tattoo artist as the chief operator:
incision,
crack the sternum, pull the cage apart with the
retractor,
and get my sweetie's name tattooed right there

on the clean smooth front muscle surface (just
under the aorta), then

clink it shut, zip me up

and after a few week's
recovery, I'd be like, "hey baby - guess what
I got?"

Well I'd like to see what she'll do
to top that
next!

I guess
I better tell them
take a picture of it.

before they close my chest
back over me, like a bone meat vest.
