i (heart) interactivity!

as the first entry to engage in the new interactivity i feel special. so here is a poem. i think it sounds better if you read it fast. if you can tell me what i was listening/reading in the 48 hours before writing it then you get a cookie. -kate


Twice red
Four times green
love hate
Audrey Hepburn on a postage stamp
That’s what I thought you’d say
Living loud
Without regret
Living within the nonexistent
Opening doors that lead to
I want your sympathy, empathy, company
Twice meant, never sent
Leaving off at the verb
“big conflagration”
I am living proof that without me I could not live
In one sort of world
Less productive
Than desirable
Desiring production
Underneath an umbrella
Inside the confines
Now available
In three sizes
Lucy in a box

Very nice kate. Lets all welcome our good friend kate to the now communal blog. "Hiya, Kate!" chimes the computer bank to a three-note melody extrapolated from the synthesis of Handel's "Messiah" and the William Shatner's version of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."

Some favorite lines:

YEEEEEEEEEESSS! Some things I'm less fond of:
existence the title. While i see you intend it to be nothing but what it is, kindof like life, I'm not sure its getting that across the best...

Perhaps i should ask if this is a work in progress before talking much more about it. But yeah I dig. I really wish i "got" more of it though. Poetry is always hit or miss with me. Some of the more random stuff like "twice red / four times green." NO IDEA what your talking about. And i guess its really MY problem that I feel like i need to understand stuff like that. I'm ok with nonsense, but if i have a hard time telling if it actually IS nonsense its hard to know. Anyway. If you have any comments on it i would love to hear them. I got no guesses as to the origin, so no cookie for me.

hmm reminds me of something along the lines of Tori Amos. Very cool in that sense. Alas, poetry is quite often hit or miss for me also, although I did enjoy that Audrey Hepburn reference.
