“If it weren’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever.” –David Letterman


Our lips hum to the
Floating music
Hanging in the air and
Dried paint splotches
In the shape of slender fingers
Spread lovingly down the
Stripes of our backs and
These round belly buttons
Are jammed inconveniently
Into our flat stomachs
(Dude, we were born
With a random hole) and
My pink feet propped up
Against your green chest
And you're the Tickle Monster
And I'm slap-happy
And … and … and …

I'm glad you're in my life.

I love your work! This is such a carefree, lighthearted poem brimming with the best of human emotion and experience. I do hope that whoever it was written for read this; you've perfectly conveyed the love and playfulness of the relationship. Your imagery is stunning and the parentheses cracked me up! Keep writing!

This is really sweet. :) I usually don't care for love poems, but there is something so honest and down-to-earth about this that I can't help but enjoy reading it.

I thought so. But you never know. Can't always assume. And yes, it's always acting weird. Glad to see my comment finally showed up too.

Most random poem? I think not. Most friggin adorable? I think h*ll YESH!  I venture to assume that this poem is brimmed with inside jokes and memories of you and your boyfriend. If not, correct me. I love the detailed descriptions. (Why the f*** didn't I get an email saying you posted this? I always get an email when you have new work posted.) Anywho, I'm in love like on Cloud 9 with thie poem. And that title, as I guy, I'm confident to say this, but it's adorable. And captures my attention. I'll be thinking about this poem the whole day. This has to be my favorite from you, Krasota. Congrats on the Editors' Chioce!

LOL. I would've posted an explanation in the author's comments section, but my mum kicked me off the computer before I could. It's just a series of random thoughts coming from the girlfriend describing a day with her boyfriend. (The bellybutton part was a conversation they had.) Really, the whole thing is just supposed to be random since it all came out randomly when I was typing :D
