Poem - Fans, Romans and Followers



once upon a fan

there I am wondering

who I was

what I would become

a fan fanning a friend friending

or some sort of jesus groupie

a follower following

"The Followers of Drax"

has a certain ring to it

I'm going to carve it

on a government tree

spray paint it on a bank wall

write it on my sig

tell it tell it to them all

and dance them at a Hubpage Ball*




*not a bad idea Paul.... :-)

A Venue for the Hubpages Grand Ball

I love the way you play with words: "a fun funning, a friend friending, a follower following" it has much more than "a ring to it" it is brilliant!

Hi Donna,

Happy to see we are both courting the same guy. Drax has a great sense of humor and he will not mind. Right Drax?

Hi Petra, no of course I do not mind, on the contrary it is a pleasure to be able to talk to you both... :-)

The memories of a dream come to mind, being the black t or the blue plaid shirt in your closet, something specifically yours slipped on when desired and laying softly against your beating heart on those occasions.

It is enough, even just the dreamstate, two charms hung intertwined on the closet door handle for whatever duration of time, the differences set aside and tangled up in each other in one of those perpetual moments that transcends time itself.

Connection that never needed to be sought, simply is and the joy of that remains.
