Monday, May 11, 2009: On the Street….Vintage Coat, Sydney

Superheroes, Saturday morning cartoons,
wrestlers have less enthusiasm than you.

Pow! Zam! Kerchunk! Neon orange and green
spangled get-ups, flapping capes in primary colors,

geometric, voluminous speech bubbles cannot
compete. If someone were to draw us as cartoons,

I’d be the one with sigh in her thought bubble,
twin scribbles like quotations around the heart

and eyes to indicate: flutter, flutter, flutter.


  1. Love the flutter flutter flutter. SO girly. :)

  2. That is a very cool poem indeed.

  3. maybe it's the winter cold...
    hey, have you submitted your poetry to Mascara?? If you get more than 2 poems published they pay you - totally good times! Plus your work is amazing, you'd totally get in there.
