Take That, You!

Roaring Laughter

What was the last thing that gave you a real, authentic, tearful, hearty belly laugh? Why was it so funny?

I want to be delicate

I want to be fair

I want to be white

and have golden hair.


So I primp and diet

pray and swear


all the Gods and Devils

Let me be her!

My prayers go


lost in a void


I’ve yet to meet that

fair, delicate,  golden-haired girl.


I went to the mirror

last Saturday morn

and as I opened my eyes

I saw

A dark skinned woman

with strong sturdy arms

her shoulders are broad

her eyes are black storms


She looked back at me

with a smirk and snarl

she was laughing from her gut

from the depths of her soul


I could not force her to be




Golden Haired Girl


You’re In Trouble Now

The Eighth Sin

Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?

d6030095cd3d5e2e2eb0e16f662c4377I am Cupcake

from today until the world melts

you will put no food above me.

You will consume me with love, lust and passion

You will not set me aside for fear of GMO, or for fear of my calorie count.

You will know the wrath of Cake if you refuse to serve me in all ways such as at Holidays, Weddings, Funerals and Breakfast.

If you don’t walk with me in one hand and one of my brothers and sisters in the other a plague of Vegans will descend upon your house and take all the good stuff from your kitchen cupboards,  your man caves and those drawers you think nobody looks into.

I am Cupcake.

To forsake me is the greatest sin of all.
