    dotsYour Wine Sets in Virginiadots

    Today I purchased a set of needle-nose pliers
    And some Post-It notes and glue

    When you go
    I will pull from my memory the best of you
    Paste it to the notes
    And flip them with my thumb

    If I call you too often
    You will know that the flip book did not work
    Or perhaps the memories got stuck

    Either way
    Iím calling tonight around seven
    and if I'm drunk or boring
    you will know again that I love you

    this is incredible.

    i have so many different responses to this piece.

    the first is a song by jenny lewis called you are what you love in which the main refrain says "you are what you love and not what loves you back... thats why im here on your doorstep pleading for you to take me back" [or 'so i guess thats why you keep calling me back'] and it also has a verse thats starts with 'and the phone is fine invention/it allows me to talk endlessly to you/about nothing diguising my intentions/which im afraid my friend are wildly untrue'

    lol. so i almost sang you the whole song.

    i love the pliers and the post-its.
    theres a song by emmy the great [sorry im thinking in songs tonight] called gabriel and theres a video for it in which she is lying on the floor covered in post-it notes saying 'gabriel i have kept/everything you sent me/everything you put on paper' and thats the image i see when i read this piece.

    and i like the way you mention phoning too often in one stanza and then either way im calling tonight.

    its just a beautiful piece and i must favourite it and revisit it frequently.

      Wow, the metaphor is great in this one. I think it kind of falls apart at the end, but I'm not sure if you meant to do that or not. It's a nice kind of non-strict pattern to the stanzas, and it forms well.

    I just wish it were longer :P

    Wishing for more
