Cable Stitched Lunacy


I am cable stitched
into my lunacy
staring at the shocked
assumptions I should
care what others
think of my idiosyncrasies.

I find no reason to divide
myself into little pieces
of involuntary acceptance.

Like me for who I am
or write my name on
your judgment card.
Either way I will remain
who I am while you blandly
procreate boredom.

I needed to vent. :)

I LOVE it when you vent! You keep on being Susie!!!!!!! We count on it!

Grace said...

Some days we just have to ignore what others think of our idiosyncrasies ~ Hope your day and week becomes better ~

Peggy said...

One of the gifts of experience and years is that (just like mom said) eventually it doesn't matter what they think! Knit on!

I love this! That phrase "procreate boredom" is just awesome.

W.k. kortas said...

Now that is how you open a poem! Not the rest is a letdown, mind you...

Mixi said...

Who are you if not yourself? Wish I could vent with the same elegance as you, Susie. Mine is more like a hit-and-run :D

Cheers!

Amen! I soo love the whole bold thought and will drink to it many times over :D ! Love the scornful 'write my name on your judgement card' and the firmly rebellious 'i'll remain who i am while you procreate boredom' :) Wonderful work!

Susie, you are so together on this. I take thee at thy word! To hell with people who put you down for your gender or opinion or level of education *I barely finished high school* or whatever.

When someone points their finger at somebody else, they point three fingers directly back at themselves. So there! Brill, Susie. Amy

Brilliantly observant Susie and wonderfully inventive. Such an original voice.

Cable-stitched perfection of a poem! Love the attitude. Yes, vent any time. :)

Well, I do like you, but I am also procreating quite a bit of boredom lately...lol. I love the spirit here Susie, and judging from the small amount I know about you....I really do think this is you. Love it!
