excitement overloaded

verse one:

i bought a new car
my very own new car
it's white with funny looking headlights
and a sweet curvy roof
that the manufacturers call "swaying"
i call it lola--it's obviously a girl
a horn that's low pitched and alto
a slender form that squeezes through traffic
and all. my. very. own.
lola makes me happy in my Deep Insides.

verse two:
for my birthday, my parents gave me a flat box
when i asked what was in it, they said 'plates'
why would i need plates? i asked, i mean
it's very sweet of you, but i'm inundated with plates
i have a lot of plates, i will never run out
it made me wonder if they knew me at all, because
really
PLATES?
and then i opened it and i was sorry for doubting them
because it was a macbook air
and it's gorgeous and i call him macdreamy
and it has changed my life
if life = the amount of time you spend on the internet.

verse three:
my book came out quietly
like a gay man at a straight party
it's sort of lurking by the umbrella stand
sometimes, when i'm passing a bookstore
i pop in to see if it's alive.
i had a party for it
it was a good party
fittingly, it was at a club
where people whisper to you
"do you know this is a GAY club?"
rumours have not been verified.

  5. Such a warm and happy post. Incidentally, I was gifted a sleek and tiny new laptop in December as well and got my first, real car, a shiny, bright new orange Nano yesterday and whom I've named Pumpkin Pie :) I feel your happiness :)
