A Midnight Snack
A steaming bowl of rice
With too much soy.
Everyone says you’ll bloat.
How they gloat
When your belly stands out
Farther than it did yesterday.
A white dress in the corner
Won’t be worn.
Perhaps you can use the pearl beads
For another project,
Perhaps you can use the silk lining
Or make an art piece -
Pour red paint down the front
Bright red like Sriracha.
Tack clever letters to the wall behind.
Wish for a critic to write
What you can’t say.
It was stolen anyway.
A new, totally guilt free, Pink Yes! #pinkyes #extra #sugarfree #sweettooth

A little Wordsworth for Earth Day
THE world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
The Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.--Great God! I'd rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
1888, in The Complete Poetical Works
