Twitter Poems

I have a slight formatting error here, but I am going to live with it for now. I hope you
like the new page!

3/8/2014 I say
I love you and
Still you think that you are
Unloveable, believing I'm
Just nice.
3/7/2014     I ask what's that smell?
My son says
I farted with mud.
3/7/2014 Clinomania
When blankets are soft.
3/7/2014 My children sleep
As I repeat this prayer
Make me better
3/5/2014 For Lent
I give up self-condemnation.
Being a dick to myself
Does not make me a
A better person.
It just makes me
A dick.
3/1/2014 An odd
Chemical quirk
Chooses this moment to
Fire-misinforming that there's
3/1/2014 My body
Braced for a fight
That is not impending
Preparing rather than letting
Me sleep.
3/1/2014 My brain
Flooding itself
Rogue neurotransmitters
Stoking my anxiety's fire
2/28/2014 Recovering from a
stomach bug
My children sleep on me.
I fart on them.
2/26/2014 the disconnect between
me and everyone else is
sadly depression sized.
2/26/2014 my conversational constipation
wanting to talk to someone
nothing to say.
2/26/2014 Swirling
Dizzy downward
Creeping on Depression
My mood falling faint, crashing down
2/25/2014 Worried
About what kind
Of crazy I might be
I get overwhelmed by the kind
I am.
2/21/2014 My kids
Winning the gold
In the vomit Olympics
For synchronized
2/21/2014 A small rumble
Harbinger of ill times
Flatulence, then
Little kids spewing for distance
I hate viruses
2/14/2014 I should teach them better
Than to laugh at fart jokes
Maybe after I finish laughing...
2/11/2014 redamancy
a dog's eyes
hold her infinite love which
nourishes my heart.
for my Emma and all of the wonderful dogs who've gone
2/7/2014 dark night
small little boy
asleep in mother's arms
barking spiders do not wake him
my son

2/7/2014 the electric touch
of his fingertips
shimmies a shock down
my spine
setting a fire at the base
opening me
to the electric of his touch.
1/17/2014 My secret ingredient?
For beans, a little bluing.
Farta Blue Streak.
#CollumLune (sorta)
1/17/2014 What am I smelling?
What are you smelling, sweetie?
I don't know, it smells
Like stinky morning breath or
Maybe it is a skunk poop.
12/22/2013 binging
watching t.v.
reading and sharing blogs
waiting my for my next writing purge

2013-12-13 As I
Snuggle next to
You against the cold night
I ask just one thing, please don't fart
On me.
2013-12-05 you are
the only one
who ever really sees
me and sometimes even you can't
see me.
2013-11-22 I think I am probably supposed to write something prettier than #FridayFartPoems with #CollumLunes.
2013-11-22 poop or poot?
the terrifying car game invented
by my kids
2013-11-22 what's that smell
from the backseat, don't worry
mommy, I farted
2013-11-22 The joy of housekeeping
My house is so filthy
if it were a movie
it would be a porno.
h.   #micropoetry
2013-11-15 Quiet warm darkness
silence like a quilt
small drowsy boy
fights sleep
a sound
teeth shine
Mommy I pooted. 
2013-11-10 I love how one sentence can be a poem. #microstitch
2013-11-09 still silent night-dark

To hear the want
In your voice, feel it in

Ignores her humanity.

Breaths on her neck
You are the song my soul sings
She leans into him
& lets her stomach talk for her.

2013-07-07 How to ~
answer "how are ~
 you?" Saying "fine"is a~
 motherfucking lie. The truth is ~ 
too sad. 

2013-07-06 My sweet ~ 
girl and boy, they ~ 
change a little each day ~ 
and fifty years from now still my ~ 

2013-07-05 My kids are right, the word should be callipillar.

2013-07-03  Is it me, or does the emotiheart look like an emotipenisandscrotum

2013-07-02 At times ~ 
I enjoy the ~ 
irony that I can't ~
find the right word to describe your ~ 
speech delay. 
sorta #cinquain

2013-07-01 Never~
understood the~
true beauty of the whole~
 universe until I saw you~
Inspired by my sweeties and @HastyWords tweet.

2013-07-01 Blue

A primary color
the pigment in your eyes
The state of my soul that you're gone.

2013-06-30 Is this the hashtag for Kimberly McCarthy? #stand4life

2013-06-29 All the~
nights she looked at ~ 
an unresponsive sky and begged ~ 
"fix me" with her prayer going ~ 

2013-06-28 Two times ~ 
the Pi such a~ 
generous day makes me ~ 
kind of like math. Y'all have a good ~ 
Tau Day! 

2013-06-28 Never ~ 
knew that small hands ~ 
using a fork would make ~ 
me so happy and proud every ~ 
day joy. 

2013-06-27 In an effort to protect the health of women,
 today the state of Texas executed Kimberly McCarthy. 

2013-06-24 I sit~ 
and listen to ~ 
my happy babies play ~ 
grateful that they're in another~
#cinquain (sort of) 

2013-06-24 I could ~ 
stare at the curve ~ 
of your neck for hours~ 
wishing I was kissing you there ~ 

2013-06-23 Evil ~ 
Insomnia ~ 
entices private thoughts ~
 to frolic across my mind and ~ 
steal sleep. 

2013-06-23 Unheard ~ 
declarations ~ 
whispered into journals ~ 
at night...relief now and chagrin ~ 

2013-06-23 Your name ~ 
in my mouth is ~ 
enough to thrust any ~ 
other words out of consciousness ~ 

2013-06-23 The strength ~ 
of your arms traps ~ 
my attention and my ~ 
desire decimates any thoughts ~
 not you. 

2013-06-23 Wishing ~ 
we were alone ~
under the influence ~ 
of a large moon moving us to ~ 

2013-06-23 The glow~ 
of your skin is ~
a beacon for all my ~ 
yearning and the reason I can't ~ 
#cinquain (sort of) 

2013-06-22 Here, a~
 Phoenix in mid ~ 
conflagration wondering ~ 
after, who arises from the ~ 

2013-06-22 You're gone ~ 
too often and ~ 
work too hard. I spend my ~ 
days and nights waiting to touch you ~ 
2013-06-22 The blue~ 
in his eyes are ~ 
the gravitational ~ 
center of which my universe~ 


2013-06-21 I once accidentally made my department think they were all fired.

complicated when your girl has ~ 


2013-06-20 Sometimes~
I'm so full of~ 
emptiness, there's no room ~
 for anything else to come fill ~ 
me up. 

2013-06-15 I love to end the day by reading the poetic exchange between 
@AndreaThepoet  & @Eusebeia_Philos  :-)

2013-06-12 Somedays~
I am too tired~
for the good fight and I~
wish that someone would just save me~
from me.

2013-04-08 I think~

#cinquain although it's really 

2013-03-11 Trying ~ 
to write something ~

sweeties . 

2013-03-09 Michael~ 
Mama's baby~
killed for his skin color~
his mom wanted him remembered~

2013-03-08 alone~

I'll never be okay~
falling into to a hole and I'm~
2013-03-07 Crap! I~

syllables trying to ~
 learn #cinquains, and I tweeted them.~ 

2013-03-06 so tired~
can't sleep~
my baby's sick~
vomited on the bed~
ice pop magic sends him to sleep~
I wait.

2013-03-05 Waking~
slamming the doors~
why do I keep it in~
instead of talking to you, I'm~

2013-03-05 angry~
sleepy baby~
resisting attempts by~
 mom to make everything okay~

2013-03-04 When the kids have the stomach yuck,& I'm knee-deep in sick, 
I find a loose braid keeps my hair back &I feel stylish. 

2013-03-01 My favorite part of the long dive between Tuscaloosa and Mobile 
 is when my children very happily yell "look Mommy! That cow is pooping!"

2013-02-28 I love the magic trick of putting a baby too sleep by gently rubbing his face.
 (works worth puppies too!)

2013-02-27 Proud mommy watches while tiny boy pauses movie and goes potty by himself~
if only he could do it&wear clothes at the same time.

2013-02-26 Her anger is a tornado that sweeps through turning the house upside down 
and leaves us all exhausted. 
#FWF on a Tuesday.

2013-02-11 Once upon a time ~ 
my son pooped in the potty ~ 
adult fairy tales. 

2013-02-08 Gentle morning sunrise~
listen to my baby's soft sleep~
contemplating life's meaning~
I'm pretty sure it's bacon.

2013-02-08 The sticky tape is broken~
my heart lies shattered~
200 miles and I missed you by hours~
now to say goodbye~
at a memorial. 

2013-02-08 Bracing myself for a goodbye~
wanting you to have never been sick~
holding my broken heart together w/sticky tape.

2012-06-04 Tree frog visits my window~
every evening~

2012-06-02 2yr-old's unspoken battlecry~
I'm in charge~

My daughter~

2012-03-09 The joy of parenting~

from the dr.~ 
Major Depression~
Generalized Anxiety Disorder~ 
You say "Cheer up! You worry too much!" 

2012-03-03 The joy of parenting~
I get to say~
"please don't lick my face with~
chewed up cheese cracker in your mouth." 
#micropoetry ?

2012-03-02 To Grandma: I wish you had met my babies ~ 
I wish I could be your sweet girl one more time ~

2012-03-02 The hardest lesson I have ever learned was that

2012-03-01 Laundry day ~ 
cleaning the lint trap~

California ~ 
so far from Alabama ~ 
I miss my Matthew.

2012-02-29 The joy of housekeeping~ 
My house is so filthy~
 if it were a movie ~
 it would be a porno. 

2012-02-28 Always so angry~
41 years and holding it in~
the dam explodes and~
I drown in the floods of anger. 

2012-02-27 All of the grime ~
 none of the glory ~ 
My love for you ~
 is like ~ 
a suppository.

2012-02-26 My heart breaks for you~
a Grandma gone leaves a hole that stays forever~
I wish I could do something~
so I'll love you harder. 

2012-02-25 You're full in my heart ~
 the miles between cannot diminish ~
 the love I am sending you ~
 ugh I sound like a greeting card. 

2012-02-24 Lazy day ~
blowing off housework ~ 
hanging with my toddler~ 
he sweetly holds my hand to his face ~
"pick my nose Mommy." 

2012-02-23 For Lent~
I give up self-condemnation~ 
being a dick to myself does not make me~
a better person~
it only makes me ~
a dick.  

2012-02-23 #WBW I lie in the palpable silence~
the dark prelude~
poised for the eruption of sunshine that means my day begins~
when my babies wake.

2012-02-22 Sometimes~
I just can't laugh~
at the things that~
scare me. 

2012-02-21 The joy of parenting means~
I laugh w/my children when they sneeze long gangly snot-worms out their noses~
Although I gag too. 

2012-02-20 I've started~
in poetry~
Is it the constant~
Am I a poet~
Or is it the Rxcough med w/Codiene? 

2012-02-19 Citing Adele and Alanis~
he dumped me~
"This will be good for your career, just think of the songs you'll write."~
But I'm an accountant. 

2012-02-19 Conversation at bedtime: I'm a zombie aarrrrrrrr!~
Raspberry my tummy!~
Go to sleep Baby Jaguar.~
 I love my little girl.

2012-02-18 Depression has been lingering~
but I haveno clue~
what to attribute~ 
watching every episode of He-Man~
all the way through.

2012-02-16 Dancing Dave is a regular slave to the call of the boogie beat. 
When his dancing shoes call he'll have a ball moving to the rhythm so sweet.

2012-02-15 Depression and anger~ 
suck the air out of my lungs and ~
I walk around a living corpse ~
waiting for what happens next. 

2012-02-14 Dear sweet antiemetic~
my love for you is something kinetic~
To you all the gratitude~
all of the glory~
I only wish you weren't suppository. 

2012-02-13 I love Adele ~ 
but I'm mad as hell ~ 
that I didn't buy her album ~ 
when it was on sale. 
#micropoetry ?

2012-02-12 What's with this rhyming~ 
it's all in the timing~ 
my #micropoetry it's a mess~ 
I am so blessed ~
that there's no exam. 

2012-02-11 Spinning circling circling spinning~
never knowing~
who I am~
how I am~
why I am~
never knowing~
only spinning circling circling spinning. 

2012-02-10 Having no middle name~
and wanting FB sass~
I chose the moniker "Funkygreenfungustoes" ~
which I now see sucks ass. 

2012-02-09 Climbing the stairs~
Shannon asks me~
do your panties have red hearts all over them?~
Damn these white cullottes! 

2012-02-08 My name's so provocative~ 
all bubbly and warm ~ 
with "bigger" and "lasagna"~ 
but, alas, no porn. 

2012-02-07 Anger building ~ 
pulse is pounding ~ 
all I want ~ 
is to run away ~ 
I know I'll hurt you ~
 if I stay. 

2012-02-06 Buffy sure knows this~
bet Bella does too~
no matter how much~
you cuddle or coo~
vampires don't get erections.

2012-02-05 Lips trembling, 
he said goodbye,
& I know my soul should melt 
like fat rendered from bacon but...
hey did someone mention bacon?
