And about 35 seconds of Up Yours, Mister in the middle, there.

You’ll know it when you get to it.

Look at him, sitting there all Poe-faced . . .

I’m Just Saying

This is just to Say Plums

oooooooooOOOOOooooooooo

This Is For the Patron . . . 

 . . . who called the other day to inform us that taxpayer’s hard-earned money would be better spent in supplying free laptops and city-wide Wi-Fi to citizens than on libraries and the salary they pay me for sitting on my rump all day, reading trashy novels.

Good luck to you, sir.

oooooooooOOOOOooooooooo

Speaking of Passive-Aggressive . . .

WIlliam Carlos Williams Red Wheelbarrow
Could someone please explain this poem to me?

Why is the wheelbarrow so crucial?
Are the chickens significant or just co-dependent?
Is  the rain metaphor or meaningless?

WHAT?!

People have been reading and debating this poem for over fifty years just because we can’t suss out the—

Oh.

Well-played Mr. Williams.

Well played.

oooooooooOOOOOooooooooo

Still a Better Romance Than . . .

 . . . you know.

One Shade of Gray

Alternative Title:  “Consent is not a grey area.”

Pun grimly intended.

(Thanks, Helen—you rock!)

oooooooooOOOOOooooooooo

  1. Surely everything one finds on the internet is real and true (except for the parts that don’t conform to your beliefs)? That patron will also be the one that blames you when he gets hacked using the city-wide wi-fi on his government-supplied laptop, even though he followed absolutely no security measures.#amiright
    Thanks for reminding me about William Carlos Williams. I knew I knew the poem when I read the first line, but had to look it up again.

  2. The poem on the wheelbarrow is awesome, especially with the ceramic chickens… except I’m a little sad the slant of the writing makes the stanzas less wheelbarrow-shaped.

Talk to me!
