Trying to Write

Writing a poem about writing poetry,
Is like a snake trying to bite its own arse.
Oh.
I just ate my own arse.

writing a poem about snakes
on a blog
is like trying to charm the pants
of an arse you'd like to eat.

Stormweava - nice to hear from ya! everybody has an arse. some are just better hidden than others.
Anonymous - great poem. i wish i wrote that. at least i can take comfort in the fact that i inspired it.

Sean -

You inspire my emotional core so much, that sometimes I wish I could cut myself in half and see if there is one of those stars...

good d.

Seriously.. every so often when I'm down.. I hit your sight and without fail you make me smile. Today, you made me laugh myself right off my chair. That's four lines about a whole lot of things I do just like that. Excellent! lol!

a haiku for you..

loving for love's sake
like writing for the paper
is pretty but vain

~~~
I love your poetry, though, sean m whelan.. please post more!

none of which i deserve, because i'm such a bad blogger lately. i'll try to be better in future.
