A LAST REMINDER...


********************



The Birthday Wishes Pour In...

"Methinks, Comx Box has attained the age of 4. Now that is a tragedy."  -W. Shakespeare.

"Four years old. Scary."  -E.A. Poe

"Wow, it seems like only three years ago you started publishing this tripe."  -A. Reader

"Never in the history of cartoon and comic publishing, has anyone reached the great heights and success of Comx Box."  -Dave's Discount Birthday Wishes, Co.

"So this means, that for over three years now, and on behalf of our clients, we have politely asked Comx Box to discontinue its blatant misuse and infringement of copyrighted materials. Cease and desist immediately."  - The Law Firm of Dewey, Cheetum and Howe.

"Hey Tom, do you think I might be getting that check you keep promising me for my cartoons now that it has been 4 years?"  -A. Gilbert

"Congratulations, Tom.  4 years, who would have thought it possible? Certainly no one that is posting here."  -R. Warren

        Serenade

“What are these wonderful flowers?” I said to her.                                                                    
 “Hush! Hush!” she said, “I am putting the poets to bed.  These                                               
 flowers are their dreams.”                                                                                                                      
And in a lower voice I said:  “What wonderful songs                                                                            
are they singing?” and she said, “be still and listen.”

---Lord Dunsany, “A Shop in Go-by Street.”

And in Mother’s garden where she clips and digs
and snips and cuts and trims;  and in Father’s garden
where he chops and ties, tears and kills and disciplines,
roses bow for standing ovations.
And I never loved the leather gloves.  My soft hands
held once by Carol, my teacher:


“no calluses!” she proclaimed.  I hold yellow pencils.
Do not round up coppery renegade leaves, do not push
the lawn mower across  green hippie hair,
I press the keys

of the Smith-Corona and commune
with language. “ I never loved
the leather gloves.”

Soft, soft boy sing Mother’s tulips.
Soft, soft boy warble Father’s roses.

Sleep, soft, soft boy.
Dream the dreams of poets.

 Sizzling Friday

It’s a sizzling Friday afternoon
A treacherous day
only a sadistic weather man
could enjoy
A sticky summer like terrorists
A miserable lesson about not building
cities in deserts, Cathedral to the parched
throat and swollen tongue.

It’s a broiling Friday afternoon
A searing singeing day of double-cross
Mugged by a puggy muggy summer
Swimming in a sea of sweat
Drowning in a puddle
of your own perspiration.


Escape into your car and ice cube of AC
or into your home where the nostrils
of an ice dragon spew cool air
as you build glasses of cool breeze
with dynamic ice cubes drawn by Hogarth
It’s a sick sizzling summer afternoon

A freaky Friday
only the warped handyman of inconvenience
could have installed
A miserable reminder
that you should have worked harder
gotten ahead

so you’d have that soothing summer house
In the arctic
that wintry retreat
that sub-zero sanctum.
