poems for a dollar.

My lil sis lily decided to bring one of my typewriters
to the market to sell poems for a dollar.

I cannot even begin to tell you how big of a hit this was. There were people lined up just for a poem from lil. It was crazy. The poems were pretty clever very much like Dr Seuss mixed with cheezy hallmark cards. The idea was you pick a topic, and she writes a snippet of a poem. Here is one she wrote for some old man looking for a gift for his girlfriend.

I don't want to buy you something cheezy or corny.
so I wrote you this poem, which might just make you horny.
my hopes and my dreams
all revolve around you
and if you leave i will cry
and be ever so blue
so stay baby stay
please stay just for me.
I will take you away, we can sail on the sea,
you will see, have some tea,
your the pod to my pea,
stick around for good times,
fun for you, fun for me!


This is proof of the last weekend at Pepper Place. It could not have gone better. One of my best friends Emmy traveled up from Florida to visit for a bit. We kicked booty at Pepper Place, then hopped over to the Greek Fest for some falafels and Greek doughnuts. There was also a film festival going on this weekend so we headed to the beautiful Alabama theater for a very interesting/creepy film about a family who taught there kids that cats were the devil and they were kept in their home learning improper meanings for words and interactions.

Check out a little more about Dogtooth the film here.,42525/
