as hydrogen is needed to make water and to make a bomb

7 Aug

there’s an anchor in someone sweeping dust off the front porch.
it reminds me of someone keeping a diary,
writing things like,

i bought a frozen pizza and a pair of shoes today; then i called Aunt Myrtle. she finished that sweater. i watched a black and white movie later that night.

there’s testimony in these things.
a determination to stick around a while,

unless that someone attaches their foot to the anchor,
scribbles a suicide not in their diary.

    I love this, even with the typo.

      Glad you liked it, but doesn’t anyone keep a diary anymore? i sure hope so because digging through trash on moving day can get kind of eclectic with shampoo bottles and raw meat sharing the space inside bags with maggots, but then a diary suddenly appears from an old explorer aka the next door neighbor who collected cans. maybe i’ll invest in an astronaut helmet? But to be honest, yes i forgot the e in note.

    You know this site doesn’t give me the little box to check which tells me you’ve replied, right?

      under settings and discussion i have the “Show a ‘follow comments’ option in the comment form’ clicked. Is there something else I should do? Thanks in advance.

      i think i figured it out, the box to check, that is. everything else reminds partially cloudy. Thanks for the heads up Marie.
