You vs. Donut




Passion sears my senses and burns like fire as we--


Oh for fuck's sake. Start over.

I am in love with this fucking donut.
It can sit there and say nothing just as good as you,
but I can eat it--

Okay. Point taken. You 1, Donut 1. But wait, there's more.

I am in love with this donut, and this donut doesn't care
if I drool over its twin cos it has a million twins and so therefore I need never be lonely again in my lifetime.

This poem is for my beloved donut. Donut could give a shit less. 
Donut 2, You 1, one draw. Goddamit.

ridiculous nonsense for micro-poetry: fire and ice.

Makes a whole lot of sense to me... and I love that meme.

lmao, and also rofling like hell. The donuts of the world are trembling in fear, seared with terror at their approaching tragic demise, whilst treacly passion smothers all the flower petals and glistening newts tiptoe hazy glimmers of delight around rosy dawn, and everyone but you looks on helplessly. Only you can save the donuts, calm the palpitating newts--or else, at least share what's edible and screw the rest.

I sense that this is the beginning of how you become a polygamist...

It's almost easy to lose the seriousness of this bit, while I'm laughing like a maniac. Almost. You are so good at misdirection that takes the brain-bits exactly where they need to go to laugh and scream and see... and, yes, drool all over a donut (and the thought of deer in love).

I love the letting go of the poetic line to give in to the real voice: "Oh for fuck's sake. Start over." Donuts. And they are all zeroes, aren't they? Zeroes surrounded by a sweet doughy innertube. Irresistible, sugary zeroes.

LOL, never mind deer having a better love life than me, AMOEBA do! I LOVE this poem. It makes me happy. You should try the Best Jelly Donut in the world, which can be purchased here in Tofino. I would UPS it to you, if that were legal.

I love the idea of starting over. It gives us hope and allows us the opportunity to move on and stop dwelling on the past. Sigh... Donuts are my all time favorite thing in the world! Yum!💕 Beautifully penned.

This is so funny:


"I am in love with this donut, and this donut doesn't care
if I drool over its twin cos it has a million twins and so therefore I need never be lonely again in my lifetime."
