A prompt for myself for the marathon
Poetry and facebook have many sides.
Two in particular, or should I say peculiar?
On one hand there are puppies and cats,
and restaurant food.
cute videos of fun times and hilarity.
Sweet notes of support and love and friendship.
The Human Connection at its best.
On the other hand, you have thunder and lightening,
dialog carried out with all the subtlety of a 2×4 to the head.
The storms of the inner self
crying for attention.
Both worlds deserve our attention and are fit subjects.
