I’m taking this one off.
I have too many bees in the head.
A beard of bees. Bread and cheese?
I’d love a sandwich, thanks.
Too many cows, and I cannot
churn butter, not with all these
flies in the ointment, a whole
continent of lies; they buzz
the same as truths, only louder.
Louder, you say? I suppose
I could yell, but when I’m yellow
like this, and underwater,
I’m not sure it matters much. Yello?
Yello? Now I am at the last payphone
on Earth, with a fistful of quarters
and nothing left to say.
If it’s Tuesday p.m., check out Open Link Night at dVerse Poets.

ah, then use the quarters on the slots, so you at least got a return and maybe there you will find something left to say….smiles.
Slots … excellent idea! If I win, I’ll send some your way. 🙂
It’s hard to find words with all of a day’s little pests buzzing around in your head. I’d spend those quarters on flypaper.
Thanks! And that would be a great use of those quarters. 🙂
Been there! But you are so clever about it really–loved this!
Thank you! Best I could do until my kids go back to school — my younger one is starting kindergarten. The impending changes, and last-minute summer stuff, are crowding my head.
Brilliant–I love the wordplay and chain of associations here.
I’m in the same fuzzy-buzzy headspace as you until my kiddo returns to school. : -)
Thanks, Jennifer! Still in it … School started today. 🙂
I love not just the non-sequitur flow of ideas (we’ve all been there), but also the subtle use of cliches (flies in the ointment, yellow submarine) to show that your mind is not at its usual creative best.
Thanks! I didn’t consciously intend the yellow submarine one, but maybe my mind made that association! I did intend the other worn-out expressions, though.
This wa so much fun–brilliant mind flow, and wordplay really enjoyed this!
Oh the agony of it all bottled up and whizzing around inside ~ very descriptive and a great write ~ thank you.
Thanks so much, Mike! I had to make the best of what I had that day. 🙂
