Default Ralph!


To feel like yourself
In a paramount universe
While they are all out
To try and change you
Is the best thing!

I pen this—
As if I was ne’er good enough.

Self celebration and introspection.

Bravo!

I thought Ralph was the sound that preceded this poem splashing onto the page.

Ralph could be a girls name. I know a man named Carol. He goes by Cary, though.

I was goofing with Nick anyway. I did think Ralph! Was an homage to Whitman's Yawp!

Maybe I'm reading too much into your work. Prolly not though.

Oh, the threat of a little banning doesn't sway me from giving 'The World According to Brian.'

That shit just comes out all over the place.

I like this. Nice thoughts about happily flying our freak flags even though they get heavy at times in the face of the normality drones.

I mean, why do people need to be normal anyway? Or have everyone else be normal too? Is life really that frightening?

Anyway, apologies for the ramble, just finished a pot of coffee so yeah...

This is my favorite poem of yours so far chat! Captures a sense that we can all relate to. Very fun to read too! Well done! Kirk
