Yes, This Is a Good Time, Thank You Very Much

Now that you’re ordinary,
cozy up
next to someone whose indifference
makes your heart go thunk thunk.
Remember your extraordinary
superstar days
for review when atrophied hope
drains
most aspirations.
Don’t bother with dreams anyway,
as no one gives a flying fuck
what happens to you.
Can I get an amen?
Guess this would be a great time
for knee-falling & begging for blessings.

The Blessing Bringer by Lisa Graham

I’m grateful that Grace has introduced we Real Toads to the hopeful, beautiful art of Lisa Graham.

  1. I love "remember(ing) (my) extraordinary superstar days." I'm not sure how much hope is built up but it helps me forget my lagging times of today.
    Very nice inspired writing, Marian. Those wheels in Lisa's picture reminded me of the Russian artisan, T. Borris Adveyev, who designed the metallic looking Olympic emblem for this years Winter Olympic Games. He died just today (or last evening).

  3. Dunno if the speaker's back on her meds, or that the three figures in the painting know that the wheel turns as it must, affording someone else their superstar moment--but been there, amenned that.
