LOST

Lost by L Filipe dos Santos

Ma & Paw’s Bakery
Missed Connections from Salt Lake City

In the store behind me, I was struck by your pheromones.
And I think you are cuter than a young Davy Jones.

You carried out 2 big bags of dog food, like it was a feather…..
I wanted to talk you up, but all I could think of was ‘how’s the weather’.

I was parked on your left, standing. Around my confidence, a ginormous vice.
If I could get another chance, that would be really nice!!

You, me, our furry friends, park, frisbee, run?… then meat and treats? I think that would be fun!!

It’s been a long time since I’ve found a good Walkin’ the Dog missed connections message, and this cute little rhyming poem is the perfect light and fluffy antidote for an otherwise gray rainy day. Perhaps our poet’s dog should be enlisted to put up a few “Lost” signs as well. :-)

Playing with Matches

It’s been weeks.

I was fine…Really.
Better off.
Amputation was most humane choice.

…But tonight.
Tonight I can’t stop thinking about you.
Inconveniently, you’re suddenly everywhere.
And sweetly insidious.

No poetry.
Too burned out for impassioned longing.
Not up for another run around the ‘we had our moment’ track.
Declining to even unpack and browse memories of the good times and the sad.

I simply miss you.
Feeling your absence keenly.
Crave that ‘I just swallowed the sun’ sensation.

God in Heaven Damn the flickering hope that our tale has yet more chapters….
Phuking trick birthday cake candle.
Won’t go out.
Unfortunate fire hazard.

I’ve never thought that trick birthday candles were amusing. All that extra wax dripping on the cake and the repeated attempts at blowing the candles out (at least one more time) without spitting all over everything is neither entertaining nor enjoyable. For some things, it’s better to bring about a natural end and move on to the next activity rather than press the repeat button (repeatedly).

Fire Station #4
Missed Connections in Salt Lake City

I was tired & panting, with hotness I was immersed
You invited me in, extinguished my thirst

Thanks for the water and the pats,
You made my day!
If i’m up that way again, I’ll bring y’all liver souffle !!!

Sincerely,
Dutchie the Daring Dog
with my Frisbee»

It took me a moment to realize this was a message about a dog (it was the reference to “pats” that gave it away). I love finding unique little notes like this one – they’re cute and amusing and a pleasant break from love and longing. Imagine if all we needed to be happy was a drink of water on a hot day and a few scratches behind the ears… wouldn’t life be so simple?
