"I Don't Buy It"

I don’t buy it, says

the scientist.

Replies the frail

and faithful heart,

it’s not for sale.

 

Poetry, January 2013

Also, I'd like to say in an open comment to the editors that I hope you don't take the lack of comments on the poetry posts as indicative of a lack of interest in them.

I always look forward to the poetry posts, though I often don't really have much to say about them other than "Wow, I like the way she said that".

First reaction: bam! Love it! Isn't that exactly how emotion works...
Second reaction: Wait. The scientist? Is this about faith? D:

I loved this, and then I hated it. Now that's poetry.

I wish it weren't the same old story about the skeptic lacking heart.

I heart scientists.

There was a red carpet photo of Leo a few years ago where the angle gave him a lurking, late-Brando-esque meatiness and now I can't unsee it. High PR Backlinks
