Day 28

Day 28 4/28/11
"the world without something else" poems

Without Temptation

I hear the sweet, succulent way it whispers my name
and though I know I shouldn’t partake of such indulgence
it dances enticingly through my brain; we tango
until I can’t resist, succumbing to the temptation.
Oh, if only it did not exist; did not persist in its seduction
I wouldn’t have such regret. It wouldn’t beget such guilt
when I submit to its compelling solicitation.

Without a Television

Productivity would abound
If no television could be found
My couch couldn't have a dent
And my dress wouldn't be a tent
For my rear would be a whole lot smaller
And I could stop lying about being taller
