As her tears blurred his receding figure into a ghostly memory, she realized how thoroughly he had broken her heart, like a steamroller grinding the shards of a perfume bottle into splintered, dusty oblivion, at least as much as one can "break" a squishy organ composed of 70% water by weight; heck, let's be honest, you can no more break a heart than you can perform an appendectomy with a spoon, which is perhaps a better analogy for her pain in the first place.
--Phil Currier, 2002 Bulwer-Lytton Contest

  < april 2003 >
Don't know how it is for the rest of you all, but Spring is absolutely limping its way into New England. It's way too late in the season for this kind of ice and snow!

But, you probably have better things to do than read me complaining about the weather...check out the great works we received over the last month. No April Fooling, there were some good works over the past month. Plus check out this month's Blender Ramble on Quentin Tarantino, Cool and the Nature of Love.
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

You're So Cool - Quentin Tarantino
A movie quote, the basis for this month's Blender Ramble.

Wet -n- Wild - Hilary Price
From the comic strip "Rhymes with Orange", I love its curveball sensuality.

Cannibal Animal - Passion_Painter
I love the title...the work itself has primal undertones from a grownup version of Where The Wild Things Are.

from "Il Postino" - Antonio Skarmeta
Submitted by Echolocation. To quote Hamlet, "Words, Words, Words."

Broken - Liz
Dawn breaks the morning after.

Just Breathe - His Little Fullback
Somehow captures the humidity of a moment.

Untitled - Akash
Tiny little work, mischievous.

captivity - Violet
The implicit adventure of the last line caught my attention.

Humpty Dumpty - ladyinwaiting
Behind our child rhymes, what?

Number Four - Chances

50 Things I love about S. - J. Knipp
The first reminds me that I'll always take Dunkin Donuts over Starbucks, no question. The second is an index, a bit longer than most of the type.

Keep Moving - Tanqueray Cowboy
Reportedly an older work, but Tanq always has a way with words.

This Unintentioned Moment - Ali
Again, I'm struck by the great and graceful closing of a poem.

woman, waiting - kevin urenda
A poem to acompany Edward Hopper's painting Eleven A.M, "a little racy" but worth taking in.

It's Over - musicalduck
An end.

Kiss at summit - jwb71913
Oddball limerick.

in the spirit of silence - deevaa
Although more well known for her paintings, I do like Deevaa's way with "average joe words".

Meraude - Briana Kassia
Forest seen.

Morning - Athena
Sweet small work.

Library - ava_disaster
Slice of life.

Oh, How My Poor Whore Heart Aches - Misti
Misti's work, rough and raw.

PLACEBO - Mumsleigh Sinclair aka RennieLorca.
Sugarpill-sweet smile.

Blender Ramble
A meditation on "You're So Cool"

Heart on Sleeve Corner
592 more heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
