Years ago I wrote a surrealistic poem called Last of the Summer Wine that I was particularly fond of. I’m delighted to report that it’s finally found a home. (Note to self: don’t submit surrealistic poems to journals who don’t do that kind of stuff.)

It’s now the Sunday, Feb 21, 2016 poem on The Mind[less] Muse. Hooray.

Not much any more. Mostly I write.

Gabi Fuller (CountryMouseMe) | 474 comments I love your words, They always have so much beauty. I kept looking for the rhyme because it did, somehow, even though it didn't. I think it was the rhythm. You do good rhythm, girl.

I had to look up the spelling of Rhythm - I can never remember it.

Were those your younger, wilder days, when nothing mattered but the song?

I think I saw you dancing out of the corner of my eye.

Smart Gabi, it's the rhythm. Almost every line has 4 beats.

And I can't ever spell rhythm, either.

Thanks, carol. Surrealism is fun to write.

Jon, in truth I know when I'm drunk, cause that's when I dance.
