If you get a chance, hop on over to my friend Kathleen’s blog, One Minnesota Writer. Lots of thoughtful musings on poetry and the universe in general.
Kathleen has a neat new feature - first morning fragments. Since she asked so nicely at the end of her post for other people’s fragments, and since I am not a crack of dawn writer, I’ll give you five mid-morning/afternoon fragments instead.
1) It’s almost May, we shouldn’t have this much snow on the ground. Who the heck wanted to live out here in this godforsaken land* anyway? Oh, yeah…
2) Dog barking at 5:00 a.m. this morning. Not cool. MY dog barking at 5:00a.m. Not cool, annoying, and embarrassing. BOTH dogs barking at 5:05a.m.? It better be the zombie apocalypse out there.
3) I really like baseball.
4) If I grow 5 inches, my work desk will finally be ergonomically correct.
5) I can survive any meeting as long as I have a pad of paper and pen to draw with.
*Brownie points if you can name that song from the two word miniscule fragment.
