to Roxanne and Cyran06


    spied you thrU
    my sitemeether lense


    bi    nary      bi     noculars
    measure, for measure


    the traffic
    at my door


    all the way from Arroyo Grande
    C                  A


    looking for words you were
    to make her see fireworks


    in the sky of your fly
    on the Fourth of July


    jenny, jenny I've got your (IP) number
    24.180.3.105


    no area code necessary
    these digits do the trick


    you sought the Gee-Wiz!
    for "poems to make her wet"


    followed the yellowed-----stitched seams
    & found yourself a home inside her \back pocket/


    fingers spiral round the circumference
    of denim clad spheres


    eschewing independence that bright night
    you wrapped yourself tight inside the flag of her embrace




    just got word yesterday that this poem about love making
    in this Googley milennium will be published in
    THE SCIENCE CREATIVE QUARTERLY this fall!

    Where to begin... congrats on this poem. Thanks for the "pearl" thing (that was a pleasant discovery). Thank you for referring me here... and wow, these are giants, all of the tall, tall trees you seem so easily to grow. Truly impressive.

    Enjoyed the Dayton Law Review read as well. Roundly (or soundly) renaissance you are, and kindred too.

    Thank you Glenn and Cherie! Much appreciated.

    And thank you for your generosity Keith. Man, if you really read that entire law review article then I am floored. Not even my parents have read it in its entirety (but Mom does insist that she has).

    "Renaissance" is too grand a term for the likes of me. But thank you for the accolade.

    Cerebrally spastic might be more fitting.

    Take care all,

    Congrats on publication!

    The visuals of this piece rock.

    But I should've worn a cyber condom. My ISP's been exposed!

    Plus Ultra: I will. Your words of encouragement are helpful.

    Steve: I'm truly flattered and honoured. Thanks for taking the time to read the article as well. It's a task I know.

    This is so surprisinng and original. I work in webdesign and web marketing and I wouldn't have imagined that someone could turn all this into something sexy. Wish I could sell online marketing with such imagination. I hope not being bold in just correcting that you meant IP number instead of ISP number. Mind if I link this poem from my blog?
    Cheers

    Why thank you Sachin! You made my morning.
    I'm glad you stopped by and I'd be honoured for the link.

    And thank you for the heads up. You're right. IP not ISP. I will make the changes (I don't think my editors caught that either!).

    Yasmin,
    It looks as though I am joining the band wagon late however, I must congratulate you for your poem. I wish you more attention for you have a unique slant that is well worth investigating. I can’t help but like your stuff.
