outweighing the contrasts

Posted: June 9, 2011 by Hannah in Family

a wink later:
a cartoon
may best explain the theory
that the similarities
outweigh the contrasts
between the religious community and THE WARREN COMMISSION
considering that:
a glance took place,
as we moved on.
i believe you may be great!
if such a thing could be real.
really REAL.
my vocabulary is small
my thoughts are blunt and bland and come pre-punned.
a turn took place:
placing me in another room
still eating
always consuming
trying for considering
pros and cons and
objects of affection
lost in all of it.
prescribing none of it.
the similarities
outweigh the contrasts:
a tired body, a ruined car
a scribbly mess, a patched up relationship
a list of accomplishments, a list of requirements
but for a grin later:
i spun around and found something.
something lovely.

    I agree with Tammy, Hannah. I would buy it, too. I just wouldn’t be able to understand it. Oh well.

  5. Hannah says:

    Thanks! The thought has crossed my mind before, but it has yet to happen…
    And for the record, unless I’ll tell you otherwise you can basically count on that my poems aren’t about the bachelorette, mom. 🙂
