Personal Split

"I was on
my way to work,
selling ladies underwear
30K plus perks."
"He slid outside
smoother than a snake."
"Who did?"
"I did.
Like i had escaped.
Waved at myself,
myself waved back,
then i turned away,
belting up my mac.
Next day at work,
felt incomplete.
Like somewhere
along the line
my heart had
missed a beat.
Now I'm out there
playing all the halls.
Memorial and all.
all on a grand
a tiny touch
of Gershwin
in the grand
modern manner.
Give me back the key,
be it C or B Major,
my face is posted
like I'm an old stager.
Can't do my job
cus my fingers
won't keep still.
I need a quick remedy
its making me feel ill."
The doctor stood up,
rushed to the door.
Said "You're on
in fifteen minutes
and i've got the last four.
One for myself,
three for my other parts.
and Rene Descartes."

nice nice i think i get what your geting at
 — unknown

The unknowns really would have more power if they weren't unknown any longer. If we were to no longer comment on any unknown poetry or rate them, then I think eventually they'd come out from hiding. I thought it was cool Larry Lark. It would make a cool rap...I don't listen to wrap, but this is much more poetic than most rap is...Is Joanna a brand of piano? If not...in line 31...Piano may fit better. I liked it...well done. This I think is the first poem of yours I've commented on.
