what i wrote yesterday

(this was written on 5-8-20 Friday, and I forgot to post it, shame on me.)

it’s 0940 hrs and i thought i would better get to writing something.

i know my royal typewriter is coming today but i don’t know what time
so instead of wait all day and miss out on an opportunity of writing
on my new typewriter i better just open another word document and
start typing and be done with it
instead of waiting
for the new old hopefully working typewriter to arrive
and then miss a writing opportunity completely
I love my Hermes 1943 font.
if I can’t have a real hermes typewriter
because they ware quite pricy right now
i figure i can at least use the font
and that will scratch the itch
oh so lightly
not really because it’s to quiet
and not noisy enough

i wanted to do some
free writing today
but even that seems
impossible
i need to read more
but then when i read
i find myself wanting
to write more
and so the forces begin to mesh
with each other and
as long as i do both today
ill come out ok
and be a winner no
matter what.

if you’ll excuse me
back to reading
i’m reading a lot of
kindle samples
i just deleted
permantley
14000 things to be happy about
or something like that
it was ok but
nothing over the top
i think there are
better books to be read.
back at it again

i ordered three
new to me
poetry books
from amazon
right now
@ 1024 hrs.
I can hardly
wait until
they arrive
but i have plenty
to read
in the meantime

I’m tired this morning
stayed up till
0100 hrs
this friday morning
i should have gone
to bed sooner
wrapped up
reading on
my kindle

i get a text
message from
fedex
that my typewriter
has been delivered
it has been
left at the front
door
but when i opened
my door
there was no
typewriter
it had dissapeared
i walked over to the edge
of my property
to check my neighbors
front door
there was no large
box sitting there
i went back inside
my house
i’ve been trying
to call fedex
and i’m waiting
for a long time
to speak to a human
being at fedex
it seems that is
a rare event
indeed
we are so far advanced
in our technology
but we have a hard
time connecting
two humans on the phone
as a machines tries
to match us up
funny how a machine
has to join two
humans together
on a phone
that in the 80’s
was nothing to
even sneeze or
think about
you could pick up
a phone and make
a call to another
human and they
would most likely
answer
very simple
now not so much

i ate my hot dog
with ketchup on it
for lunch
this now
@1246 hrs

i’m waiting on my
dad
to call me
and tell me
he won’t come
over for his
two chess games
with me
he has been backing off
a lot lately
so i don’t think
he wants to play
or learn chess
i should look
into playing
someone on
chess.com
if i want to

but what i really
want to do
is buy a $120
backgammon
tournament
game of
21 huge inches
instead of
anything smaller
for less money

money honey ronny

nothing is coming to me
today because i think
it’s friday
my wife got paid
and i’m in the party
mood
not the writing
poetry mode
but i have got to do what i
need to do regardless
what day it is

i need to read more
but i really want
to write more
like i am now
but write
with more meaning

bat that ate the rat
couldn’t find the mat
to lie down on and rest his weary lat
because we all know how
important it is for a bat
to rest his lat
tat mat kat, kit kat bar

i’ve become
extremely tired

i remember back
when i went bowling
on a league no less
but then they let
everyone get on a
league that wants to be
i rolled two gutter balls
in a row
only me
no one else on any
league
ever rolled a
gutter ball
that is how
much a looser
i am

enough of this free writing
garbage
i will read
now @ 1318 hrs

it’s now 1410 hrs
i will need to
read more
out of my real
paper books
and save
the kindle
words for
tonight when
i’m in bed
and my wife
is sound asleep
for it is daylight
now
and that means
reading words
light reflecting
off of ‘dead-trees’
paper

my dad just called
and he said
he is running late
he won’t make it
at 2:30 pm
but 2:45 pm
i was shocked
he is actually
coming to
play chess
with me?

i need to write poem about

  • storms rain snow blizzards
  • maybe the 3′ blizzard from westcliffe colorado
  • lack of sleep
  • lack of exercise
  • jumping rope
  • four square in pasadena california in 6th grade.

all of sudden these don’t even look that interesting
i better just concentrate and
get set up for the chess game
much better than trying to
make these crappy words work.
