Notes Found On The Refrigerator April 2014

30 Mar

 Thin toilet tissue:

The reformed Sinner, self-proclaimed by an edict,
in confession only the devil could read out loud.
sometimes they try too hard to clean things up…
they end up putting their fingers through the paper,
cleaning the wrong ass. 🙂

**********

None of us are heroes when you come back home.
Whether from conflict overseas, educational institution and training or just getting off the street.
We do what we are supposed to do.
We become that place that sent us out…though some of us might have felt we were being kicked out 😦 

but, we come back with a better understanding,
for a better home, that changes the world by sending out more “non-heroes”.

****************
All activity deserves respect. Creativity deserves distinction.

***********

With so many complaints and maladies
and nothing you can do about them
you might as well redeem your soul
for a fix in advance.
Of course not,
get off your ass and on your feet 🙂

******
I have been an up-and-coming disappointment for some,
and then there were others.
Perhaps they were just working on their smile. 

******
No one is expected.
I’m not leaving.
Gosh,
the day is mine.
Now I too, must decide
what to do.
walk or ride?

******

 

Taking complicated words to create an understanding that is sophisticated and simple
is not as fun, or as limiting, as taking simple words to a level of sophistication through universal understanding. However, regardless of the words, it is the intent to be understood through the eyes of imagination.
***************
There is always enough peanut butter for another sandwich in that empty jar. Don’t throw it away just yet. 🙂

*********
In all my experimentation with alcohol I have found no useful benefit. Even the euphoria is condescending to the human character. It poisons experience into catastrophic moments that become stillborn forever

    some interesting thoughts mixed in…i think much can be accomplished with simple words…
    the art is in how you put them together…the second one made me think of all those sent to war…and how they come home…or not…creativity deserves distinction…agree

    I am still grinning about the fingers poking thru the tissue wiping the wrong ass. Cackle. I love the wisdom in these pieces – especially the one more sandwich left in the jar.

    There’s great satisfaction in crafting one more sandwich out of what is considered and empty jar of peanut butter. And your fridge notes are so much more exciting than mine, I must say. 🙂

    okay, when are you putting the fridge notes into a book?

    the first one had me laughing and falling off my bench. ouch.
    the 2nd one reminds me of those back from wars. i think they deserve better.
    i totally agree with your 3rd statement.
    and, heck, all the rest are just as thought-provoking.

    I think this is an amazing idea – the notes on the refrigerator. It is how I imagine Vonnegut’s Tralfamadorian quotes would read.

    There are a lot of notes on your refrigerator thus week, ZQ! The fifth poem feels so true. When nothing is planned, we can feel very free until we realize the choice is ours to make the most of it or to waste time.
