Spur of the moment poem from 9/14/11

A girl in the library

She sits by her cubicle,
waiting for motivation to kick in,
but all that comes to mind,
is how to make a rhyme,
so she stares pass her books,
and gives people funny looks,
until she catches a handsome man’s eye,
who dresses nicely, with a tie,
and in her mind springs a conversation,
that would consist of her lacking motivation,
and he would frown and nod his head,
giving her belligerent looks instead,
he’d walk away, with his hands in his pocket,
and she’d stare at him in wonder,
sitting boxed in by her wood painted cubicle,
with dictionaries lined up in front of her,
waiting for motivation to kick in.

A girl on the train.

She sits on the train,
with her legs up on the seat,
staring at her newly purchased white shoes,
when the train makes a stop,
and a shuffle of new people come on,
so she lifts her head up and stares at all the new, foreign faces,
waiting for a sign of recognition,
but all that comes to mind,
is a layer of question marks,
when she gets distracted by the man sitting next to her,
who’s watching a video on his phone,
so she edges over ever so slightly to catch a better glimpse,
but all she sees is the reflection of her shadow,
so she edges back and tries to find another distraction,
and looks up to re-read all the advertisements,
smoking cigarettes kill,
Devry Institution makes people smile way too big,
and the Yankees run New York,
suddenly a woman interrupts her train of thought,
and asks to sit besides her,
she she puts her brand new shoes on the dirty floor,
hoping roaches or rats don’t crawl up her leg,
trying not to breathe too much because the woman smells like body odor,
counting down the stops until her ride is finished,
so she can go on another endless train ride heading to nowhere,
having nothing to look forward to except the presence of others around her.

  1. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated! kosa spalinowa http://almanach.biz/dom-i-ogrod/al-ko-kober-sp-z-o-o-aeratory,s,777/

  2. Studies have shown, however, that you can give your energy a boost by getting more
    sunlight. She was my longtime fishing companion and I miss her but our present lifestyle doesn’t leave room for
    a large dog, so we have a small cat.
