The S Word….written by TaffyOKelly

Out the window I take a fleeting glance
And by chance I happen to see
Beautiful fluffy flakes of white
Staring back at me
Like artful billowy pillows
Floating all around
Or sparkly little fairies
Dancing to the ground
And as I watch in amazement and awe
Of such a glistening sight
I can’t help but wonder
What in the hell is this shit?

The S Word

Out the window I take a fleeting glance

And by chance I happen to see

Beautiful fluffy flakes of white

Staring back at me

Like artful billowy pillows

Floating all around

Or sparkly little fairies

Dancing to the ground

And as I watch in amazement and awe

Of such a glistening sight

I can’t help but wonder

What in the hell is this shit?miscellaneous kelly 6 130

My working, city bus, cross dressers at the mall dream

I used to work in an independent drug store, which finally closed early this year, and that is where my dream begins.  I am there, helping the owner clean out the store before I go to my “real” job.  While on the way to my “real” job, I get a call from a former co-worker who tells me “I really miss you, but it’s all over facebook that you are getting fired and nobody is happy about it.”  So, in anticipation, I schedule an interview for a medical office, which is to take place at a shopping mall.  Interview scheduled for 10 am, however my car is in the shop, so I have to take the bus.  I have to walk about a mile to the bus stop and also to the mall from where the bus drops me off.  It is summer, but when I get off the bus, I have to drag my case on wheels through a mile of snow.  I arrive early and decide to go to Sears and check out their “store must close sale”.  While in there, I find my interviewer talking with a potential candidate for dr.  This guy is a younger version of Sylvester Stallone mixed with Robert Downey Jr.  While in there, I notice the floor in Sears is filthy, so I grab a broom and start sweeping away the mess.  Since I haven’t found any real deals at Sears, I walk around the mall to kill a little time.  About 2 stores down from the Sears, in front of the pretzel place  is a group of people…..They are all men dressed in drag and one has his face and beard painted smurf blue.   THAT is when my alarm went off.

A White Sky

Outside I was met by a strange white sky

It was as white as the driven snow on the ground

And all around me flowed a deafening silence

Then from this white sky there came but one sound

A long, lowly distant song

From a lone bird in the big evergreen

His song was almost mournful

As he tried his best not to be seen

Wrapped in his blanket of green and white

High against a sky as white as the driven snow

His song ended and out of this strange white sky

The deafening silence again did flow
