Go, Ogle

Gia walks these
gemstone streets,
a Gemini uncoupled.

Break her open
and you’ll find her
elbow’s broken
but her
soul’s anew.

She’s an ogre
in indigo jeans,
and she means well
when she says Jell-O
is the best dressed goo.

Wish you were here,
she whispers, but where?
Who knows?

I swear,
she’s never been one
for geo

Just p(l)ay her
what she is oh


Another fabulous word list from my Shawna. Thanks, Girl, for the unstuckedness. 😉 ❤

    You are the BEST at writing about me. 🙂 And you know I luhs me some Google.

    Dude. The way you layer and twist meaning as move from line to line is so rad:

    “Break her open
    and you’ll find her
    elbow’s broken
    but her” … Her elbow’s broken butter. {heart}

    My fave:
    “She’s an ogre
    in indigo jeans”

    I DO mean well. I’ll tell you why later. 🙂

    is the best dressed goo” … Tee hee.

    “she’s never been one” … Whoo, boy is THAT the truth!

    “graphy” … I LOVE the idea of a grape hi. 🙂 Surely there’s grape bubble-gum involved. Then maybe there’s a little “grapple-hi”/”grappling with hi” in there too. She’s socially challenged, in other words. But she smells good!

    “Pay her what she is OMG owed.” … FABU ♥

      Just play her. Cuz she’s the BEST. My Best Poetical Friend Ever.
      Also, the broken elbow is an extra-awesome funny bone. 🙂 You make me smile, always. All ways.

        And holy crap do I need it today. These people came home TERRIBLE. And the girl one – the GIRL one!!! – has a D in PreAlgebra. Same farkin’ teacher Zack had last year. Kill me now.

        Oh, man. That is the worst. Grrrr. Why can’t those mean teachees just let our babies mostly have snack and playground time, no matter how old they get? 😦

        Honestly, we would be so much better off if we were still grooming our kids to run a kitchen, raise babies, work a farm, and shoot shitake, instead of for college. It’s an absurd waste of human life.
