Nuts



photo by christoph repprecht


Her lips are two squirrels
fighting over a nut - knowing it
might mean survival

thru the coming   season.
I almost want to dress myself
in shells & pretend to be
a nut.

Who am I kidding,
I already am ---

  1. Huge squirrel smiles for this one. :)

    You may have noticed that I have a serious thing for nuts. (Oh no, she didn't!) (Oh, yes. She did. :P)

  2. What an hilarious ending, bwahahaha! Especially after the serious start. It is true that every nut counts (lol), especially with the upside down weather we are having. Love your sense of humour - always a lovely surprise!

  4. Being a 'nut' can be advantageous!

  5. "Who am I [when I'm] kid/ding?" Yup. If she sees that, then Line 2 comes true. Perfect extra space in Line 4, by the way. Hilario. And I 100% agree with you that knowing a nut (or more) is the only way to survive. Thanks for giving me the giggles.

    "I almost want to dress myself" ... ALMOST. But I'm not gonna. Just gonna stay naked and dance around like an idiot, 'cause that's how I roll, yo. ;)

    Double-play in the closing ... are you already being a nut? Or are you already pretending to be one? This is fun and silly, but really. How many times have we all pretended to be // someone else to "fit in" with a date/partner/group? WAY too many times. I'm pretty sure YOU really ARE a nut, though. :)

    Title: NUTS backwards is STUN. And isn't that just what "nuts" do? Shock the crap out of people with their flapping, goofy lips. I can't tell you how PERFECT that fighting-squirrels metaphor was. Super awesome.

    Oh, "nuts" is also "sun t[ea]," which is a little extra yummy, don't you think? Boy, these southern/ers sure like to put in too much sugar, though.

  8. We are all a little nuts (or a lotta nuts) haha What is scary is the facade of normalcy that is just a little too perfect
