  10797.     

so weary and so dedicated sleeping

it is this painstaking
choice of words
for a nice handiwork
knitting some fairies
in some
mathematical colors of threads
some butterflies
and flowers in bright colors
using strictly the mandate
of numbers

a painting in cloth and threads
taking her
time
when she is finally
hypnotized
falling into a deep sleep
inside a room
where she is alone
on a dim light
of her loneliness

i open the door
to check on her

i see the handiwork of God
a woman so indulged
so engrossed
in her art
so weary
and dedicated


sleeping.

  10798.     

So what are you doing with your life now?

She says

She stares blankly on the wall
She is busy
Counting the lamp posts on the streets
She is so busy
She thinks God is preparing something
Grand for her and she is so busy
Too preparing something for God
Who prepares for her.

I am amazed
I ask her


“So, did you stare long enough on that blank wall
Was it really blank? Did you really stare?
What made the wall so blank? Is the stare really
Worth making on a blank wall?
And how many lamp posts have you counted?
Is the street filled with lamp posts?
How is God? When will the preparation last?
How are you doing with God? Is God busy too? ”

She is a little bit understanding to my way of thinking.

“There you are making a poem again. You have never changed.”

She said.

  10799.     

so what do you expect from the title?

the poet writes the title
first,
he is the messy kind
that writes
whatever comes first
even though
literally each word
seems not to be significant
to the next one

practically like strangers
coming together
inside a train
whose common ground
is only to go somewhere
else

nothing like
care, or affection
they merely stand there
and wait
and then take their
respective
exits

he writes: so what do you expect from life?
changing it later:

so what do you expect
from the
title? trying to conceal the essence
of his question

and then he keeps on writing
like a lost kid
looking for its mother
who seems to be very busy
with her own
kind of obsessive
compulsive shopping
and then you arrive at the
end line which says: hey why are you stalking me?

changes it later to
something courteous: do i know you?
are you following me?

do you like me? funny, but
sometimes it is true

  10800.     

So what is the gender of your computer?

The men's group decided that 'computer' should
> definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora') , because:
>
> 1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

> 2. The native language they use to communicate with
> other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

> 3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long
> term memory for possible later retrieval; and

> 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find
> yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

> (THIS GETS BETTER!)

> The women's group, however, concluded that computers
> should be Masculine el computador') , because:

> 1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
>
> 2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
>
> 3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time
> they ARE the problem; and
>
> 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited
> a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.
