this is what i look like this afternoon
somebody yelled at me a lot on the phone about something that has nothing to do with me
haven’t decided yet if i’m going to barf, cry, or stab 
going to the bar to drink 18,000,000,000 2 to 3 beers and watch my brother’s band play and then i am going to sleep forever
thank God: it is Friday!

it’s fall so that means it’s time for my annual outrage about lady bloggers baking with alcohol and swearing that you really can’t taste it

starless winterdark

starless winterdark, and we were at my folks’ place
extended family behaving themselves for once
(which meant they liked you, and i was grateful)
woodsmoke coarse, hanging low
it came time for you to leave
and you went, fast, because your car would slip
the driveway a cold mess

and i ran out after you for one more word, a last look
but you were already gone
i got stuck chest-high in snow
and in trying to free myself, i woke
shivering in the 50-degree pre-dawn dark, window open
turning over in bed with a hip out of joint,
so lonely i could not sleep for some time.

and i hope this was no prophetic dream
because i cannot over-winter another like the last

Meet the blogger

Rules: Just insert your answers to the questions below. Tag at least 10 followers. (whatever)

I was tagged by ichoosecake.  Cheers, Shane!

Name: Danielle

Nickname: none

Birthday: National Bourbon Day

Gender: female

Sexuality: Straight/pogonophile

Height: 5’ 7”ish

Time Zone: EST

What time and date is it there: 10:30am, 09/05

Average hours of sleep: as much as I can get

The last thing I googled was: an address for work (life is thrilling)

My most used phrase(s): you’d probably have to ask my friends what they’re tired of hearing me say?

First word that comes to mind: facetious

What I last said to a family member: maybe he has another video

One place that makes me happy & why: there is a particular cornfield in a valley not far from here, full of late-day sun and the occasional cow, that I am very fond of

How many blankets I sleep under: a seasonally appropriate number?

Favorite beverage(s):  coffee, bourbon/rye/Scotch, IPAs & stouts. Also I drink an alarming amount of seltzer if allowed.

The last movie I watched in the cinema: The Hundred Foot Journey (highly recommended)

Three things I can’t live without: grace, coffee, and time alone

Something I plan on learning:  I’d love to get into homebrewing in the future - right now I have neither the time nor the money.

A piece of advice for all my followers:  Joyful? Don’t be insensitive to those in pain. In pain? Don’t put a lid on the joy of others.

Someone you miss: my best friend lives halfway across the country. We chat daily, Skype weekly, and manage to visit a couple times a year… but gosh, it’s just not the same. 

okay, that oughta do it. Guess I’ll tag irishgoodnight, bathtubginrummy, likebanter, ecf, and ngeremia? No pressure, y’all. 

Made y’all a mix on @8tracks: Smoke by impudentearworm.
