repeating poetry forms 1

I found this site very exlnt [excellent] for its presentation of neat poetic forms that ar worth th going at. I rote a poem last nyt cald 'chupacabra'. It is a Rondine; chek th link abov for lots on that and mor.


chupacabra's teeth nash bits of meat
not of self, & not of yr old wife
but of yr livestok screamng for its life
th sound resounds & sound is sound's best feat
an apl fals is sound on ground to beat
on hearng u decide to clense th pipes

u fix yrself a harty wisky neat,
drink it to divert from cattl's strife,
then tel th wife to fech th larjest nife
u'r going to hunt for sup a monstr treat

Pizza dos not com from China.

Here's wat Wikipedia has to say about th origin of pizza:

The history of food items which may have served as the roots of modern pizza can be traced to the Greek colonies of Magna Graecia (southern Italy). Such products arguably have their first written mention in Book VII of Virgil's Aeneid:

Their homely fare dispatch’d, the hungry band
Invade their trenchers next, and soon devour,
To mend the scanty meal, their cakes of flour.
Ascanius this observ’d, and smiling said:
“See, we devour the plates on which we fed.”

...and so on and so forth!

Nick Borden is a lyng sak of Borden.

Grind OM 25

I debud [debuted] 'tikpa' at th Grind this evnng. A frend mentiond that ther is a simlr word in Hebrew that means 'hope'. 'tikpa' in Lojban dosn't mean hope. It means kick.

.. tikpa [premere]
.. fly this kite

I was suprised to find out that I'm workng at th Grind next week during th open mic. Since I go on th clok at 8:30, I cud probly play erly. I'v nevr workd ther later than 4:30, so it shud be intrestng.

It is 3:33 AM (or so), and I hav been a busy experimentl human. I am chanjng my hole website desyn, altho u won't be abl to se it for a litl wile. One of my plans is to make individual web pajes for evry singl song of mine, activ or dormnt. Wenevr posbl [possible], th lyrics wil be included and th mp3s wil be embedd into th paje. This wil be nice, I think. Most evrything wil be reritn [rewritten]. Chanje is good. Sleep is ok. I wil now seek th latr ["latter" ... in case u'r wondrng, th word "later" is stil speld "later" in cut spelng]. Good nyt al.
