Poetry is Dead in the World of Abigail

Saturday, April 25, 2015

I have a passion for unrelated things.

I have a passion for unrelated things.

The other day I was cleaning out my closet and I found a watch, an umbrella, galoshes and a picture of the moon.

The Watch

The purple and gold watch was a flight of fancy that hit me last year. For some crazy reason I bought a watch. I have never been one to wear watches although I admire them on the arms of others and in catalogs. The watch was still in the box and had never been opened. Rather than open it and disturb it I put it on the top shelf with a note for my daughter.

Dear, Shelby,

I found this watch on April 23, 2015. It’s new and has never been worn. I kinda, sorta remember purchasing it last year. I am putting it on the top shelf of my closet so that after I am gone you can find it and remember what a nut job your mom was.

Always Mom

The Umbrella

I love umbrellas and I love to lose umbrellas. It’s not unusual for me to buy two or three umbrellas at once only to find on rainy days I have no umbrella to speak of.  The umbrella I found in my closet was bout about two years ago because it reminded me of singing in the rain.


Like umbrellas I love galoshes. They always make me smile and think of singing in the rain. I remember buying the galoshes at a rummage sale for 25cent about five years ago. They haven't gotten much use but I still love them.

The Moon

I always wanted to be an astronaut. If not for a lack of aptitude in math and science I could have conquered space. I feed my love of the moon with random pictures of the moon that allow me to dream.

I live random unconnected things.

I ain’t a Foodie I Just Eat Tuna A Lot


I ain’t a Foodie I Just Eat Tuna A Lot

I love tuna. It’s a private indulgence that often has me up at the crack of dawn indulging in my favorite treat.  Over the past year I have perfect my tuna palate by adding lot of different ingredients. Walnuts, apples, grapes, pecans, raisins  are just a few.

Give me a tuna on whole wheat and I'll consider you a friend for life!

Hallmark Channel of Love

                                                                         Hallmark Channel

I love the Hallmark Channel. I can always count on the Hallmark to feed my need for happily ever after. I love the fact that romance is alive and well cased on the Hallmark Channel movies. I often spend my Sundays in bed with a good book and the Hallmark Channel.

The world would have you believe that good old fashioned romance is dead. Not the Hallmark Channel. Every week a woman or a man finds the desire of their heart, love. If you have ever been in love then the Hallmark Channel is for you. Each movie makes you yearn for happily ever after.  then you must indulge in the Hallmark Channel.

Abby's Addiction:Gooey Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Gooey Grilled Cheese

It’s not often that the affection of addiction comes upon me, But when it does, I over indulge until my soul is satisfied. My new addiction is grilled cheese sandwiches. I am in love with grilled cheese. I am so addicted that I brought a special griddle  just to make   grilled cheese sandwiches.

I never knew there were so many  fun combinations that can be combined to make grilled cheese sandwiches.  Sweet and spicy pepper jelly, bacon, walnuts!  Along with lots of different cheeses that end up making the gooiest grilled cheese sandwich you’ll ever eat. Yep, I have found my addiction and I am feeding it with grilled cheese sandwiched.

I have fallen head over heels in love with the color orange. In the words of a poet “it moves me”.

I want the world to bow down to the color orange.


Watch my hips sway

I know you hear what they say

Believe every word


Brown sugar is the hottest chick in the game

Watch her like a bon fire flame.

I heard the wind say trouble is coming your way,

She’s the bad news you read about in the headlines

She’s the woman your momma warned you about

She is “that chick”


Smile Barbara Stanwyck in the movie Baby Face

Magical like Veronica Lake in I Married a Witch

She’ll make you whistle like Lauren Bacall  


She smells like trouble

She will be your problem

Bend her over and you will see the Rapture

Orange the color of sexy women

The Perfect Lipstick


 I am on the greatest search of my life. I want, desire, and need a sexy new lipstick. I want a lipstick that is dramatic dark and alluring. I also want a pink lipstick that is pale pink and cute. My eternal quest for lipstick never seems to end.
I am listening to Bad Mama Jama

I love umbrellas. Rainy days were made for especially for red umbrellas.
Nothing says rainy day more  poetically then a red umbrella. Red umbrellas are a welcome sight over a sea of black umbrellas.

I am listening  to I Love a Rainy Night, by Eddie Rabbitt

Your All I Need to Get By

Right on time

That is what you are

Always there when I need you

Dependable to a fault

From the top of my head to the soles of my feet

You are love bound in leather

A hollow honey pot of pleasure

You are the best pair of shoes I have ever worn

Legacy Of Three Blackbirds


Legacy Of Three Blackbirds

The sweet sorry of happiness
is darkness run amok?
Life cut short in the blink of an eye
A sparrow in the wind
            Live Long And Prosper?
            Death  may come in the morning

A life of giving to others cut short
Tears of wide spread sorrow
Kisses that disappear like life
Casket of sorrow
Sprinkled with the tears of a well lived life 
            Who shall dry my tears?

Life is a flame that blows out too soon
Memories of happiness replaced with despair
Forever remembered for your kind way
Like a city on a hill your memory lives on still

The Legacy of Three Blackbirds run amok in the night
Connie, Kelly, and Zoe
Death, Kisses, and Sorrow

What takes your breath away?

What takes your breath away?

The question seems as though it would be easy to answer. What takes your breath away?

  1. Great art leaves me breathless and speechless
  2. An affection not necessary on the lips kiss leaves me breathless
  3. Taking off my shoes and dropping my purse when I arrive home leaves me both breathless and speechless
  4. Great spaghetti and lasagna leave me breathless

Whimsical fits of fantasy

Whimsical fits of fantasy always come to mind when I think of fairytales. I was once asked if I could be any fairytale character who would it be. It’s hard to narrow down which fairytale character I would be since I love them all. But if I had to narrow it down to these:

  1. Red Ridinghood. Red has a super cute cape and I always thoguth I would look good as a red head
  2. Snow White. I love her dress and her ink black hair. Beside she has seven men at her beck and call
  3. Cinderella because she has glass slipeprs and a cute dress
  4. Belle- Because she like to read and I love to read
  5. I want to marry Uncle Rat in A Frog Went A Courting. My mother use to read this story to my siblings and I as children. I always asked about Uncle Rats wife and my mother use to say that I should write his story when I became and adult…maybe one day I will.

O’ Dear! What will Abigail wear to dinner?

Now that I am throwing a dinner party for the dead I must pick out the perfect dress. I often wonder what one wears to a dinner party of the undead. While black would be appropriate for most, I chose to believe that things should be liven up. I do believe that dead folks like color too.

O’ Dear! What will Abigail wear to dinner?

I think I want to live in Paris. Not necessary Paris but very close to Paris. I think Luxemburg would be a good place to call home.  I could awake every morning and walk the streets of town for no reason. Then get labeled  "That Crazy American: by locals. I want to live in Paris not necessary Paris but close to it.

Today I am listening to Ella Fitzgerald "Paris In Springtime.
