Retaliatory Reparations

Haunting
mournful
crescendo building
roiling
deserted plain
shadows creep
filling spaces
calling
whispers
crevasses violated
chilled
taunting
sins
tallied
totalled
found wanting.
You
call
implore
on bended knee
compassion
charity
mercy
kindness
actions
emotions
never exhibited
dancing
band aid helicoptering
fast fixes
roundabout deniability…..
You thought
devious you were.
Raucous
sneer
contempt
laden
no turning back
no mitigating truth
foul played
foul plyed
seems your tide has come
the piper struts along.
They are coming.
They are coming.
They have found you wanting.
They have found you wanting.
Destruction you cause.
Pain you inflict.
Damage torn.
Run.
Hide.
We shall seek and find.

Method to my Madness

I have decided that rather than being a hibernating, unmoving lump on the couch this winter, that I will give myself a project. One that I need to get done but admit to being rather daunted by.

I am also the Queen of Procrastination now that my grandma has gone to the great coffee shop in the sky, and I will find a multitude of ways in which to delay said project.

  1. I will move all my furniture, vacuum and reorganize the living room set up. Exactly the same way that it is now because well I have a baseboard heater and my internet cable runs through a small hole in the wall and I cannot move the table from there as the computer is on it. (I am old fashioned, still have a desktop. Mom is more up to date than me with her laptop.)
  2. I will strip and remake my bed despite having only done that a few days ago.
  3. I will stand in front of my closet, scratching my head and staring at the clothing that hangs in there. There is nothing to purge as I did that a few weeks back.
  4. I will clean the bathroom. Not as horrid as it sounds, but not a wonderful job. Especially since I have a 9 year old boy who loves to pee all over the toilet. Seriously how hard is it to aim? You just point and pee? No?
  5. I will stick my head into T’s room and retreat. I have him keeping it tidy, he is dealing with his clothes his way and I can see the floor. I do not need to venture into the Den of 9 year old boy smells and I don’t even want to know what those are.
  6. I will move my books from one book case to the other.
  7. Move all the knick knacks from one bookshelf to another.
  8. Rearrange books and knick knacks so I can take one bookcase and repurpose it into a shelving unit for clothing in my bedroom! Wohoooooooooo I am smrt!
  9. Drag bookshelf to bedroom and rearrange clothing to my liking.
  10. Drag t.v. from my room into the storage closet. I am tired of sharing space with it.
  11. Hmmmmmmmm okay, oh wait, wait, let us see who has messaged me in the last little bit while I had my music blaring and doing my amazing reorganization of the house whilst not procrastinating.

This will take me all of today. That leaves me with another 4 months of winter to try and procrastinate through. But now I cannot. For I have a plan. A gigantic totally makes no sense but it will motivate the hell out of me. I am announcing it to the world. LOL okay, so really only to those of you who read my blog and family and friends who don’t. Or don’t admit to anyways.

I have a lot of poetry. Not my early stuff that we all know in a dumbass moment of who knows what, I burned, but there is a lot of it floating around my apartment. Stuffed away in coiled books. I have poetry as well sitting in my email that I have written over the last three years. Than there are all the poems that I have written and posted here.

It is a lot. And I need to streamline and organize it all. For myself and because I am going to start to put together a body of work and well………I am not going to get ahead of myself. Suffice it to say that the main body of my winter project is getting all my poetry in one place and organized into categories. Once that is done I can look to where I want to go from there.

So, yeah me, not being slothful and being held accountable by well myself. For having told y’all means that I cannot slip it off to the side. Now I actually have to do it. After all there really is a method to my madness. 🙂
