more turtle and hare considerations

4 Aug

some people don’t bother playing  jack in the box.
they skip the crankshaft and burst onto the scene,
smuggling pop rocks into the romper room
but fizzle into air conditioner calculations.

others test the accordion flexibility
stretching ideas and wings all the way
even the old gurney rubbing against hospital walls
sounds like saint laurence seals

*broken bats baseball
swan song

    No offense intended….I have a suspicion there were no pop rocks candies when you were in romper room. Just basing that on some really close guesses and even closer shared memories of Milwaukee, the town that made itself famous.

      different strokes gary coleman got a bad rap for break dancing with pop rocks in his mouth or maybe it was washing some down with coke a cola, but either way his act of bravery was our big challenge. Yep, i was in my early teens at that time.

      the romper room was an isolated room where mentally challenged kids attended school. It was within the larger school. What’s interesting is that they meditated at the beach, learned how to play guitar, punched padded walls when they were angry while the rest of us were trained in how to take things way too literally.

      There’s no offense taken and no defense necessary on my part, but I have to be honest. It’s always a big bummer when someone questions the validity of what’s been said.

    I’m saying this one out loud over and over, because it’s full of delicious words which go right though onomatopoeia and out the other side.

      I always forget what onomatopoeia is, but I liked this one too. I was thinking about friends I’ve known for many years who once had an edge I don’t perceive anymore.
