bowl of hot steaming white rice
faint porcelain bowl
each grain foretelling wisdom

there is more than what meets the eye

O Bowl, how I love thee
Thou art wonderful,
        O Fruit of the tree.
Thou hast been finest friend
        to me,
   a friend to be
for unto eternity.

Date unknown. After "Twisted Mermaid", but before "Trial by Fire".

I scored a goal
At the Super Bowl!
Knocked down every pin
One more strike and I win!
What? That's the wrong game?
Well then please change the name!

Friends, arcades, night bowling.

I bowled three games tonight.
Possible paths to victory skipped rocks in my mind,
Until the ball dropped.
I won and lost.
My face flushed.
My skills wavered,
Such a tragic player.
A strike, a ball doomed to the gutter.
What did it matter?
When the lanes burst with laughter?
Friends, arcades, night bowling.
Fingers contorting.
Strange shoes and watching feet behind the line.
No passing it, no crime.
All win in the end.
Bowling alleys- hidden gems.

They said we couldn't beat the Steelers.
We did.
They said we couldn't beat the Seahawks.
We did.
They said there is no way to beat the Panthers.
We did.
And as for us, we did it! We WON the SUPER BOWL 50!

Poem is dedicated to the Super Bowl 50!

Fearful slide into the role
I wish not to presume
I feel the need for guidance
for some center - like a bowl
round and loud - caring about
things like a jellyfish
eat, sleep, sting -like the
ring of my memory
that has forgotten how to sing
gone like the voice of my memory
and I can feel
Alis grav nil and my memory sings
Nothing is Heavy with Wings

Friends are the
bacon bits in the
salad bowl of life!

A Mind.
A Soul.
A Bowl.
A Key.

(No Syphilis Was Contracted In The Making Of This Poem)

well... maybe a little
#lost   #mind   #soul   #key   #bowl   #syphilis  

teardrops are prone to overflow
like a sea that has come into a bowl
and to no one can speak of woe

#woe   #teardrops   #bowl   #overflow
