Okay...I'm digging deep here inside my slump. Where did all my words go? I just cant get them to line up anymore!

Orange Juice


Its all so surreal

so I didn’t shave this morning

and the potato chips I dropped on the floor

and the Hasselblads I looked up on the net

and even tho I did my laundry today

I am wearing dirty clothes


I move my head and see things slowly

I wish I had more chips

this poem isn’t turning out

the way I thought it would

but orange juice and vodka

help put it all together.

The controlling image of orange juice works well with the free verse format and modernist/existentialist thematics (reminds me of the mood opening Notes From the Underground). I like the Spleen of this piece - honest and authentic. Nice work there Dayvid!

Forget about the alignment; you seem to be putting it out like it would have come out. Although, I do prefer a black russian over many things. No, really, I drink seldom; but that is one of my favorites along with the screwdrivers. I can't seem to pick up the pen when I indulge, however. On the subject, it is nice to purposely do things differently on occasion, and sometimes let things go. I dig the loose feel of this writing, Dayvid. Thanks for sharing.

Hair of the dog old friend, helps to form words but it hurts to speak them out loud. Try a bacon sandwich. Ptrick

Sounds like a fuzzy navel instead of a fuzzy head, Pastor...maybe a trip to the pulpit and a sermon on Dirty Laundry will help...look up Don Henley and Eagles on the Internet and call it Rock and Roll!

Love and Full Hasselblads,

Dayvid, how about try OJ and Champagne. Then make a toast to a well-deserved lie in for the day and recover sans guilt, in style!

O.J. and Vodka sound very good to me, right now.

I don't drink much but a glass of oj and a shot of vodka sounds really good right now..Vanilla vodka would make it taste like a creamsickle.. Sounds good..
Hope things get better for you.
Peace, love and light,
