"Short Post...." by Old Man Yates (Tired-Ass Holy Fool)

Fun! Crazy work day plus hanging with the baby... Plus, I'm just tired. Last night wasn't a great one for sleeping. (I'm usually all medicated, but I skipped a pill last night... I won't skip again!)

I'm going to try to do some WRITING tomorrow. I haven't done much lately, beyond my little nightly posts and the occasional Low-ku. Tomorrow, I'm trying for FICTION... (Very tough to create. We'll see if it works out.)

Meanwhile, here's a new bad poem...

Cardboard chunks in teeth
Gravel bedsheets hot and red
Tossing and turning!

While my keyboard gently weeps.... My apologies if you happened to have read that last one. (It wasn't very funny...) Let's try again...

Cannibal teddy
Fluffy furry death machine
No toys will be spared...

That's funnier! Yeah. I'm cool now.

Just for fun, here's a work in process...

I'm still trying to figure out where I'm going with this one. We'll see!
