Poetry Friday: The Word is SLIDE

Thanks to my lovin' man, Sergei, for offering up the Poetry Friday Word for Today...SLIDE. Feel free to use that luscius lil' nugget in your blog post today, in whatever fashion you choose...poem, story, voice-over, lucky lottery ticket, recipe for ravioli....

I have three today. I tried a poetry trick, using the alphabet, for the first one (hah...written frantically whilst the Night Computer Guy was hounding me about printer I care). Second is a video of one of my favourite slides. Third, an homage to one of my all-time favourite writers, Kurt Vonnegut.

Have a good weekend, y'all!

1) The Poetry Trick

Slide Side/Side

Amorous Alice
Beckoned Ben breathlessly
Carefully, coyly
Delicious, delectable
Effused erotic
Flirting, fluttering
Hushed, hiding
Keep kissing
Love, lust
Prone-postured, pondering
Sex, sex, slippery sliding silkily
Tender touches
Watching, waiting, wooing
You, yes

2) Favourite Slide

3) The first photo in the slide show, middle of the page, 1/3 the way down, is the face of Kurt I'll always intelligent imp, ready to kick ass, then sit by the fire with you and a bottle of wine to discuss space travel, politics, and how to draw assholes. So it goes.

Oh my god, I love that movie! Of course, Christmas freak that I am.

I've only read Cat's Cradle by Mr. Vonnegut but I was affected forever. I want to read more of his stuff. I heard him in an interview on NPR recently and was so amazed at his lucidity and intelligence at such an age. He will be missed.

I love the poem, its so fun! I was wondering what you would do with X - HA you're good.

You young babes (Maggie and Mona!)are just constantly hot! May you never suffer from the hot flashes I do!!! Love the ABC descriptors....of course my Gr. 3's might choose slightly different words! HA!

I like the poetry trick! That's ever so cool.

Thanks for that movie, i've never seen it before.

And for the slide show. KV was a big influence on me when i was a young thing. I devoured his books and still use some of his words in my day to day life, like duprass.

And again, yummy. *s*

Christmas Story is the BEST. And it's funny; Patches referenced Christmas too. Great minds. *s*

Fo the life of me, I couldn't think of a thing to do with the word 'slide.' I'm so ashamed.

tell me, tell me, tell me how you do that trick...

Excellent alphabetical poetry. I'm sure I wouldn't have made slide so hot - not this Friday, anyway.

Mona, I'm glad you had the chutzpah to use 'slide' the way I WANTED to. *lol* Brava!
