I dashed off a small poem this morning (my version of doodling, I suppose), and it was only after I came to post it here that I realised I was imagining moth-girls again. I wonder if this says anything about me, other than a lack of originality? Whatever, here it is.
as a silversoft moth;
her lifedance lights my dark existence
and sets a flame in this ancient dry soul.
She flutters closer.
You inspire me to write poetry. Yes, you doetry.
You are witty like a katana, loyal as an oak, more lovable than a sneezing piglet.
You are faithful, loyal and compassionate. Like a Labrador. With slightly less hair.
You are cooler than the other side of the pillow.
You are my most loyal and trusted advisor.
I would follow you into bloody battle, in a kilt, in the rain.
If we were marooned on a desert island, I’d be very sad when I had to eat you.
I’d help you move heavy stuff any time you asked. Even if it’s not your stuff.
Wiser than ten Yodas you are.
In a fight, you could beat two sharks, a bear and five ducks.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It’s you, you massive legend.
You’re my kind of weird.
“Why have you given us our lines like this, you sexy Wombat?” I hear you say. Well now, I did think (and I was asked) that some people might not know the monologues herein dissected, and may prefer to hear them in their full entirety only when I reveal the complete, pasted together mess. Also – 162 DMs? Far more tedious than knocking this up. (Use the “Next Theme” tab just up there if you want a reminder of what we’re doing here).
So, find your name and click on the little image next to it in order to reveal your lines. Record them, get them onto Audioboo (are other audio sites available? I know of none), and on Sunday 4th post a link to your boo so that we can all hear your lovely voice.
If your eyes are such that you have trouble reading your lines from the image, let me know so I can DM them to you instead. And don’t worry about pronunciation, try to use your normal voice – that’s what we’d all like to hear after all.
