The Tongues of Men

A novel in redraft by Gabriel Smy

Sarah Palin found poems


Yesterday The Guardian website featured some found poems from Sarah Palin's emails. They weren't particularly good. Marika challenged me to do better.

So here are a few. None of them is good enough for Verbatim Poetry, except the first, perhaps, for the dinky rhymes. Turns out that Marika was right – Sarah Palin does lack poetry.


THE TANNING BED

And the old, used
tanning bed that my
girls have used a handful of times
in Juneau? Yes, we paid
for it ourselves. I, too,
will continue to be dismayed
at the media and am thankful you
and Sharon are not part of the strange
going's-on in the media world of today.



NEITHER COLD NOR DELICIOUS

And no, we didn't
participate in eating
the moose meat.



CAN SOMEONE FLAG

Can someone flag
the lie in the blog
sexy highway talk among governors
that claims Trig
was in the fender
bender
with me
and he
wasn't in a car seat
on my commute.
Sheeeesh.



HI MOM

I'm smiling at u
in the camera.



ACCESS

I am a hunter.
I grew up hunting –
some of my best memories
growing up are of hunting with my dad
to help feel our freezer.

I want Alaskans to have access to wildlife.



METAPHORICALLY ECLECTIC

I hear from the worker bees in the field
that Industry is on a roll against us
on a rampage because they had no idea
they wouldn't get their way on all issues.
We don't win ball games merely playing defense.



I'M FREE

I'm free – noon
on – to do
ktuu



ALCOHOL FREE

With so many kids and teens
coming and going in that house
especially during this season of celebrations
for young people, proms, graduations,
I want to send the message that we can be –
and the People's House needs to be –
alcohol free.



SUPPORT

If the new cheese manufacturer
wants us to do anything with them
to help kick off their venture
(if you think it's a good idea)
please let Kyle know
we can come cut a ribbon or something.
