Coffee Shop blues, a poem by Grandcarriage

Here I sit, brokenhearted.
Came to knit, but
Never started.

That's lovely.

and strangely familiar...

Ah yes, I recall, the boys locker room back at EHS.

Knitting was really big, even then.

Hope you get to be more productive tomorrow.

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence

Awesome. How many times has that happened to me! :-)

We should all start on a knitting poetry contest. I'll work on a Haiku (?spelling). I'll have to look it up and see exactly what it involves. I know its like 5 lines with 9 syllables or somethign like that! :-)

Haiku - pattern is 5/7/5 syllables:

So much to be knit
Patterns sitting in the stash
Wallet out of cash.

MMario - I don't live in the 21st Century - but I play a character who does.

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

My sentiments indeed.

Your poem makes me smile! I'll have to work on a Haiku to add here.

My knitting is totally tubular!
