GLORY BE! Day 62

My grandmother used to tell me how she was ready for me to have her some little ones. I would always say, "Now Maw-Maw, it takes two to tango. And also to have kids." She'd tell me I better be scouting out my perspectives. "Take a man as long as it takes to have some babies, then send him on his way. Hell, get one of them from the bar you go to. Pick a tall one." I would gasp and whatnot. She'd then tell me we lived in a new age and being old-fashioned was nice and all, but she thought I needed to get a move on it. I took too long getting to it, but there are still tall men out there, I figure. I'll get around to it. And I'll name the future brats after that woman with the new age ideas.

To be honest I liked your story time more than the actual poem - the poem is good! It's just... Well, the story made me laugh :)

Fair enough! My grandmother had a way of charming people. :)

I had major goosebumps from the commentary alone..
How pricelessly darling this is.
And adorable. Your kind of adorable.

Aww...haha. Maw-Maw charm carries over, I guess. (:
Thank you, you lovely woman. :tighthug:

The comments really are part of the poem, aren't they.

I did my first (unpublished) collection that way; each poem in two parts, the writing and my reaction to it.

I think both parts are truly beautiful, the poem for beautifully crafted and the comment for being spontaneous and true.

They are a lot of the time. (:
Thanks, Crispen.

Oh? That's a really good idea. I love seeing what the poem means to the writer or what inspired it. Anywho, I'm very glad you enjoyed both aspects of this. :heart:
