Reading My Palm

reading my palm s

lines that pay no attention
lines that don’t rhyme
lines that get no satisfaction

lines that answer with a question
lines that cut out the middleman
lines that just wanna have fun

lines that distort
lines that trace the outline of regret
lines that reel in the years

lines that have paid the price
lines squeezing out every last drop
lines tracking my tears

lines scaled to meet expectations
lines keeping score
lines that aim to be true

lines verging on madness
lines confined to what is known
lines whispered in the sound of silence

(with apologies to the Rolling Stones, Cindi Lauper, Steely Dan, Smokey Robinson, Elvis Costello, and Simon and Garfunkel)

Nina and I have been doing our MeMadTwo blog for 5 years now.  We’ve had ups and downs, stops and starts.  Right now Nina is not posting much, due to a variety of issues she’s dealing with.  I don’t want to keep posting there without her (it’s Two, not One), so I’m going to use this blog for times when she’s on hiatus.  When she’s posting, I’ll be back at MeMadTwo.
