JIM'S SUDDEN MOTION

SILLY LITTLE GIRL
I was sure that it was merely the
Immature, emotional dependency of a child.
Years have passed: a period of happiness, stability,
Independence, and increasing confidence,
And I was relieved that my contentment with life
No longer lay solely in the hands of
The beautiful boy I once knew.
Silly little girl.
I was completely wrong.
Years have passed: a period of happiness, stability,
Independence, and increasing confidence,
and I finally realized that what I had dismissed as
Childish dependency was actually
The real thing.

the torn corner of
a water-circled bar
napkin scrawled on
with pencil and passed
quietly across the
table carrying the
simple short to-the-
point mesasge i love

you because really
after all what else
is there to say after
you've already stared
into each other's eyes
for two and a half hours?
- MQ Thorburn

A SEARCH FOR PROGRESS
Spending your whole life in a trap
told how to behave and how to act
now you're older and about to snap
as being alone wasn't part of the pact
Caught in a world that is anew
and not really sure what to do
going bit by bit as you move
searching for no harm to come to you
But you're missing all of the fun
all of the things which can be done
so many pleasures under the sun
but you insist on remaining a nun
He left you feeling so mundane
with crying tears in the rain
his actions were so inhumane
believe me, I understand the pain
It's time to rise and make a choice
let everyone hear your new voice
never again to become a toy
just the victim of someone's ploy
Get back out there and take a chance
let them all know you're still willing to dance
let your style and tone serve to enhance
increase the odds of finding new romance

CLOUD GAMES
when they have nothing better
to do
clouds like to rain down
and watch the umbrellas shoot up
like instant mushrooms
clouds enjoy watching people scurry
under roofs
under bus shelters
under overhanging ledges
sometimes a whole wedding party
goes scrambling into a tent
the bride's train trailing behind her
along the ground

Cynical young woman.
The same heart still sings that
Pure, unsuspecting song which
Filled with passionate joy those
Summer days and nights of the
Silly little girl who fell in love.
This cynical young woman will be
Blessed if she can ever find a
Boy as beautiful as the
One I once knew.

it's also fun
to rain on a parade
and see whether the floats
can really float

- Brian Boyd

that kind of thing
is so much more satisfying
than raining on an iowa cornfield
or an a frican plain
those arican plains
can be so dreary
any cloud with an ounce of sense
would stay far away
no matter how many rain dances
bony feet beat into the arid sands
