Roadie Poet: Pretzels


It took some planning
but I got a Valentine’s Day present
For More.

A new Sharpie.
A beaded lanyard she’ll dig.
And a

I taped the Sharpie
onto the lanyard for her.
Gave it to her that way.

She looked it over.
Said it was cool.

Looked sorta sad.

I handed over the bag

She squealed and hugged
the pretzels.

she hugged me.


Okay, I thought.
I’d hoped for better.
but it seems

I’ve lost my girl
to a bag

    Roadie Poet finds himself in such strange situations. I always look forward to an RP post, though. When’s the RP Anthology coming out? 😉

    Man, you not only write good poetry, but you manage to put humor on it, wow.

    There’s only one problem: now I’m hungry.

    I like Roadie Poet. You know I’ve never understood the allure of pretzels. We don’t really have them over here. Now if it was chocolate I’d totally understand!

    Well…extra hugs for poor RP. Here’s hoping that she shared the pretzel with him.
