….

She is hyper
-bole’d over with the ramble-rattling of her own brute
commotion, the savage
(save-age)
…….de
(light)
(votion)
of living in impermanent over
-civilized skin.

She’s deliberately made
a Thoreau
(thorough)
(through, though)
invest
-i
gation
of her own in
-sights dimmed by din,
drunk with ginger ale
and song.

Her calendar’s
long and wide and deep, squares
begging for ex
-cursion
(oh, how she aches to amble)
and in
-cursion of some enemy adept at non
-verbal vice.

Some semblance of silence
would be nice.

…………………But I ramble.

 


Prompted by one of my Shawna’s fabulous lists.

    Indeed. And you have me laughing. So I live and so I pray, walking and in Quaker silence.

    Wow. This is astonishing! I’m insane over this:
    “She is hyper
    -bole’d over with the ramble-rattling of her own brute
    commotion”
    “living in impermanent over”
    “a Thoreau
    (thorough)”
    “of her own in”
    “drunk with ginger ale”
    “Her calendar’s
    long and wide and deep, squares
    begging for ex”

    I’m shocked that it wasn’t “amble and inc-ursion”! But a little “curs-ion” (and “cushion”) is necessary sometimes.

    Love: “some enemy adept at non” and “verbal vice”

    “But I ramble” … Chuckle. You rule.

    There’s nothing generic about this text!

  4. “drunk with ginger ale” – that made me smile.
    I get the idea that you can’t slow your mind down here (all the noises inside).
    “non-verbal vice” : that’s pretty scary!
    I agree that I don’t see where generic comes in at all!

    the Gen/Eric Text … it’s the story of their love

    She’s a little ticked at him right now:
    “begging for ex
    -cursion
    (oh, how she aches to amble)
    and in
    -cursion of some enemy adept at non
    -verbal vice”

    This is said by Gen, in a sarcastic tone, mocking him and throwing his words back and him for daring to ask her to stop talking so much and just let him watch the game:

    “Some semblance of silence
    would be nice.

    …………………But I ramble.”

    Also: “But ire amble…”
