Ah Forget It!

Ah Forget It! (A response to Ted Hoagland's "Big Grab")

Are you kidding?
I'm negotiating with surrealism,
Trying to take it into me,
Trying to cuddle it,
Make it lovely,
Make it love me.

--Sarah Masen

Ain't nothin' wrong with a little surrealism! In fact, sometimes my dreams make more sense than reality.

I am counting on that.

I hear you, sad corn chip man, and I agree-everything's broken. But take heart-here's my chips-and let me get back to naming stars.

i'm so pleased with these poems and these responses. annabanana - thanks for seeing the difference in the cornchip-renaming frustration of his.

*maybe I should have said "making the distinction" instead of "seeing the difference."

pageturner said...

Oh Anna. You star namer!

pageturner said...

Mel you see the difference and make the distinctions. It's a gift of yours. Sweet Mel.

Annabanana said...

I'll see and second that. I am glad you made both comments, Mel, because each is worth saying, like two pictures in a row showing the almost-same moment.

Like so many times.

Mmmm, chips.

I'm gonna steal a line from the kids and say:


it's fun that you guys know me. or that I have known knowing you and all that entails - feeling love for you, interpreting you. And that is somehow you loving me.

pass the chips?
