Got this one from John Paul over at: http://skymeetsground.blogspot.com/
This one requires me to pass it on to some people who make me laugh regularly. Unfortunately, I cannot pass it on to Simon Pegg since he won't see it, so I chose these people:
Terry (I mean Satan's child) at http://awriterofwrongs.blogspot.com/
Penname Pauline at http://anallegedauthor.blogspot.com/
Tehereh at http://stiryourtea.blogspot.com/
Elizabeth at http://writerelizabethpoole.blogspot.com/
Emily at http://steppingintofantasy.blogspot.com/
Tiffany at http://tiffanyneal.blogspot.com/
From dear Anne at http://piedmontwriter.blogspot.com/ I received this award:
The rules didn't seem very specific, so I'm just going to hand it out, okay?

Now for some poetry. You KNOW you've been DYING to hear some of my poetry.
You are the window through
which I look and see the future.
Never gave it much thought before
since being alive each day is a surprise.
Now, with procrastinated perception,
it occurs to me the window panes
are actually the bars of a prison,
and the view is marred by grime.
Ain’t no ‘mount o’Windex
gonna make this future look bright,
and I’m pretty sure you’d frown
if I accosted you with blue ammonia.
This house of cards is tumbling
into the hearth I built that blazed for you.
Each face on the faded cards smolder,
and I swear the queen of hearts screamed.
If I died, I would come back for you.
I’d be like ghostly Swayze who learned
to move objects with intangible fingertips
Just so I could kick in your teeth.
Twice. A day.
For the rest of your miserable life
until we’re together again in ether.
If that ain’t love, I don’t know what is.
