The Smell Of Breakfast

It wasn’t the eggs
That stunk up the apartment
It was the onion
Strong enough to make you cry
Even though
They were precut a few days ago
Placed in the refrigerator
Until it was time to make the omelette
The smell reaching neighbors noses
And any other visitors
Who made their way to the courtyard
That day
And for a few hours afterward

An Invitation

So, it’s the last day
Of the Nano Poblano
Blog post a day
For the month of November
Although I didn’t post daily
Missed 3 days
I believe
But that’s not important
It’s that I joined in on the fun
Got to know you
Exchange thoughts
Read some cool posts
Be a part of something
And I’m looking forward
To doing it again next year
How’s that for an endorsement?
Some thoughts upon completion
While I didn’t like everything I wrote
I did it
It was more than a just a task
(Although some days it felt like a task)
It became a habit to write
And that’s more important
Because I had stepped away from daily writing
Because I considered not sharing
Because I had doubts
That I was good enough
All of which are ridiculous thoughts
So I must share that they were there
And I’m sure you were
In the same boat as me
So I want to thank you
For completing this Nano Poblano
Together with me
Thanks for the camaraderie
And though the task is complete
Let’s stay in touch
Write and respond
Well beyond the boundaries
And stay enjoying this bond
We now share

Shameless Plug

An hour long podcast
Is the end result
Including the planning of
Finding of
Cleaning of
Recording of
Creating of
This weekly Tuesday thing
“Gimme That” is the name
8pm the time
And the slogan
“The podcast where every record
played is for sale”
Which ended an hour ago
So that means
If I get started now
Next week
I’ll have another show
Nah really it doesn’t take that long
So I’ll start tomorrow

You Over Did It Holmes

Wasn’t going to tell you this
Because it’s embarrassing
Grown men
Aren’t supposed to do this
Friday night
Or any other night
So here’s comes the confession
Got drunk the other day
But not your typical drunkenness
Not your typical blowing off of steam
Too many drinks
Too fast
And everything went dark
Until the next morning
Open eyes
A friends place
Not quite sure how things transpired
But here
Was where things came to a beginning
The realization of
Shame and wonder
Of what was said
Of what was done
Along with a day long
Feelings of nauseousness
Being lethargic
And shame
And wonder
What the hell
To this
Normally self aware
Well mannered man beer man
You probably guessed it by now
Fuckin tequila
