while on the bus this morning, instead of reading a local daily, a popular periodical or one of the many non-fiction hardcovers i still want to read, i kept things minimal and just read a ‘poetry in transit‘ banner, which are found on transit systems all over british columbia. usually in the morning, and this morning was especially an early morning, i never quite ‘get’ the poems (despite them usually being written for children), but today’s stuck (yup — it’s from a children’s book) so i thought i’d share it…. in my super-new-awesome velkr0.org feature, found only on these awesome and amazing internets… ‘transit ad poetry originally published in books in blogging’
Don’t give a magnet to an elephant.
He won’t handle it with care.
He’ll hold it high up in the sky
and pull planes out of the air.
He’ll get it stuck to delivery trucks
and bicycles and trains.
He’ll cause trouble at construction sites
by sticking to the cranes.
He’ll magnetize the city–
every car, bus, van and truck.
Then he’ll sneak home to the jungle
and leave everyone stuck.
alright folks… it’s all about to get serious now… the conservatives are well conservatives… and want to start continue fucking things up… so go grab a nice stiff drink… watch this… and do your part… [link via YouTube]
so i’m heading home for christmas this year and i’m looking forward to the downtime and catching up with my family and all my old skool chums. i’m going to be spending plenty of time with my pops (well since i am not right now, while he lays in the hospital awaiting more tests) and with my grandpa, grandma, mom and sister. three weeks in onterrible is a long time, so i should be able to float around peacefully and chill out a lot. also going to be spending a lot of time with my friends as i usually do, but i think this time family is going to have a bit more priority… and well, ‘me time’ ranks right up there too…
that’s all for now, since thinking about xmas is really tough when it is sunny outside in vancouver in late november.
eating sunflower seeds is great… even indoors when you have a red plastic beer cup as your spit container… anyway… it’s may two-four… and it really feels like it… not really sure why.. or how… or even what defines the feeling of may 2-4… but i’ve got the feeling… and it’s just too bad i am not camping this weekend… or hanging out in some sand dunes…. or drinking way too much and picking fights with random people… or even just showing up at unexpected someones cottage… either way.. this weekend marks the start of summer… and this year.. it’s going to be a good one!
for those of you that feel like velkr0.org is not updated often enough… feel free to check out my tumblelog… which includes an assortment of many sudden and clumsy short-form and mixed-media posts (including random links, quotes, dialogues, videos and a bunch of stuff automatically pulled from flickr, twitter, last.fm events, etc… )…
