Eventually, or: Thank goodness!

A Chลka

Gymboree playdates;
small girls... ack! That is to say,
medium-sized girls
playing, exhausting themselves
on climbing walls, slides,
trampolines, bungee towers,
huge air mattresses,
forts of enormous cushions,
ball pits, balloon rooms,
mini-soccer fields, dark rooms,
swings, long balance beams,
multiple levels, and then
pizza followed by
ice cream are actually
enough to exhaust
them after a few hours, though
I can hardly believe it.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. Sounds like a successful event!! All the shrieks and frenzied activity, a little sugar overload, and each one will sleep soundly!!!

  2. Great party! ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•๐ŸจYou deserve a good rest David. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿค It was really fun reading your Chลka and I visualised all the girls having fun. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

  3. Been there David! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚ It’s exhausting just reading all the stuff they get up to and play on at gymborees! Never mind being there with when it’s happening. ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿคฃ That’s an impressive list you compiled!
