Pranks on you Backfire

I saw you left your lunch in my fridge

so when you came home on your break to eat it

I hid the food and arranged the plate,

like I had just finished-when you came in,

I was licking my fingers.  But you are so in love with me

and so gentle, and sweet, you didn’t even

get mad or anything. You just said, “Well,

I hope you enjoyed it.” And I think you meant it.

When I revealed the food, you said

“If you really want to, you can have it.”

Emboldened

When I take off my clothes in a flash quick instant

You have to rush to close the blinds

while your eyeballs are still popping out of your skull

and dribbling all over me like a basketball

I no longer care. Your gaze has emboldened me

to do such alot of things I really shouldn’t be doing

Liebster Award – I’ve been nominated!

Murder Tramp Birthday, my favorite goth girl next-door, has nominated me for the Liebster award!

The rules are to answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you, post on your blog, nominate seven more and make up 11 new questions for them to answer.

Would you kill one person to save the lives of ten?

No, because I don’t trust numbers as accurate representation of people.  Questions like these are so dangerous. Who are these people? What if I said I yes, and you had me kill an eleven-year-old girl to save the lives of ten convicted rapists? Have you ever read Button, Button? If not, you should.

What are the names of your demons?

Brendan. Hannah, and Greg.

Ever smoked Marijuana?

Of course, I actually was reprimanded by a police officer for smoking with my stepbrother as a teen. The car was so full of smoke we didn’t see him approach, and when we rolled down the window, smoke billowed out.  He asked us to get out of the car and then what that baggie was in my jacket. I said “Ohhh! You know what that is…?” and then I just trailed off and handed him the pot.  I don’t smoke anymore.

Name a person who makes you believe in yourself.

Jasper Kerkau

The name of the first person who made you question your sexuality?

Danella

Do you ever doubt the existence of others than you?

I used to. That’s why I don’t smoke pot anymore.

What’s the last message you sent?

I told my best friend from Korea that I am currently editing the surveillance reports of private investigators.

In your opinion, was the Devil ever really evil?

I had to do a little research on this one. From Wikipedia, “A devil (from Greekδιάβολος diábolos “slanderer, accuser”)[1] is the personification and archetype of evil in various cultures.[2] Historically, devils can be defined as personifications of whatever is perceived in society as evil and the depiction consists of its cultural traditions.[3]

What gets me though, is this, “whatever is perceived in society as evil.” Well, the clitoris is perceived in some societies to be evil, so maybe not so much.

Favorite line in “Hallelujah?”

Well, maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya

If your anxiety was a physical creature, what’d it look like?

A big, black stingray that swims through the air, blocks out the sun, and likes to give all encompassing, suffocating hugs.

If you were going to die and were allowed one last phone call, who would you call and what would you say?

I’d call my dad and ask him to tell me a story about death.

 

Now I’m supposed to come up with eleven new questions for my own nominees to answer so let’s see.

 

  1. What is your life like?
  2. Can you still do the macarena? If so, please upload a  video of your efforts.
  3. What are your secret (and not so secret) skills?
  4. What is/would be your novel about? Give us the plot.
  5. Who is your least favorite person and why?
  6. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
  7. What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done to impress someone?
  8. If you could change a story, which would it be and why? (I hated the ending of Alias Grace!)
  9. What stops you from killing yourself?
  10. What would your acceptance speech be if you won an award (maybe even this one)?
  11.  What is your favorite thing about famous poet Georgia Park?

I would like to nominate many more bloggers-I struggled to narrow it down. In particular, I saw that My Valiant Soul and my girl SPO_OKY were already nominated so I didn’t nominate them again to make room.
