This poem means very little.
The market is looking bullish.
The troops are winning in Iraq but many lack spiritual fulfillment.
The gas stations are open and will sell you cigarettes for the moment.
The pizza will be delivered hot for a fee.
Construction is beginning on nuclear power plants.
Hives of poets are rhyming like ants.
The girls at the coffee-bar are good natured and efficient.
The modern symphony is a chaotic cacophany that I can only dance to on Ecstacy.
A large Mexican family is having a wedding in the park.
The stripper has a green dragon tatooed on her ankle.
The spider I crushed is waving good-bye to his web(although scientifically it is only twitching.)
I am dying at 22 and the sun should be hot tommorow.
"This" means very little.
"Poem" means just a little more.
This poem means very little and yet it means

It is a pretty good snapshot of Earth, 2005 - at least in some circles. This is clearly poetry, so why posted under "rants"?

First of all, I don't really have HIV so don't worry about me. In the past, when I've called things like this "poetry," people have gotten after me about semantics. Personally, I think there's a pretty fine line between poetry and prose. How's your son; is his name "Mike?"

sean - my son
Which son?

My son Chris PM'd you about Curt Blowbrain
My son Joey is a writer in this forum
My son Jason is in Iraq
And my step-son, Kyle is Six years old...

Which one did you mean?

: )

I actually meant your son Chris. I'm glad you have so many sons. I'd forgotten that you were the one who has a son in Iraq. I read your article about your thoughts on it. I thought your perspective was wise. I still don't support the administration or the war but we are only private individuals. We should strive to do our best wherever we are. I hope that your son returns safely home from Iraq and also that your other children are doing well.

Sean - Chris is fine :)
Thanks for asking and for all the well wishing for Jason. Hopefully he will be home soon. His unit came home a couple of weeks ago. I haven't talked to him, but from what I understand, he volunteered to be one of 22 who stayed back to tie up loose ends in Port Operations (shipping their heavy equip. back)so those with kids and wives could return first. Maybe a week from tomorrow he will be stateside again.

As for Chris - yes, he enjoyed your comment. I wish he would engage in more thoughtful conversation. He tends to be a very deep thinker.

Joey is the one who posts here. He's pretty green and has always been lazy about writing things correctly. As long as he gets them down onto paper - it's enough for him. The comments here have been a great help in that regard. Philo has been particularly helpful.

Kyle has written several poems as well (he's six). Perhaps this weekend, we will get his account set up in lit.
