The Ballad of Smee

by fyarlgiles



There once was an Ogre named Smee

Who had a blue mustache that grew on his knee

He washed it

and combed it

and shined it with wax

Til he smashed it in band with his new tenor sax

Hearing Her

by fyarlgiles


To Hear Her

 it all returns.

the dark room,

the shrinking veins,

the strong, rageful pumping at her center

it travels like wind

here and then gone

waking and sleeping on a clock of it’s own

Hearing Her by Angie Hoover- Hillhouse

I wrote this several months after my girlfriend broke up with me in 2004. It’s probably published in my high school livejournal along with other evidence of teenage angst. We all used to feel our feelings very publicly in those days. I’m sure I wrote this hoping that she would contact me out of pity. Now I’m marrying a man, and she’s teaching english to impoverished Ecuadorian children.

The sun, she reaches down to stroke

the soft red skin of poppies smiling

Heat moves quickly through the garden

Worlds between them blossom bright

Green and Yellow wide awake

holes and corners washed to white

Breaths of light blown into  shadows

Til she folds away to sleep

Collage: Cynthia

by fyarlgiles


I think collage is really honest. We connect to it in  a lot of ways because it’s inherently disconnected pieces that are all thrown– or even organized together to attempt to create some cohesion and meaning.
