short story slam week 74

anxious memo
lately news
a story is based on demand
a headline from new york is black

forgiven waters
crispy sun
an afternoon is layered with cloudy fog
my hand goes dumb hearing a groan

short story slam and song bites from monty harper




  richard compton

monty harper lyrics

n Oklahoma we say "Howdy!" (Howdy)
In Oklahoma we say "Howdy!" (Howdy)
So when you meet your friend on the street,
you'll say "Howdy" if you're thinking on your feet.
It's a mighty fine way to share your day
with a fellow human being!

In Mexico they say "Hola"
So when you meet your amigo on the street ...

In Germany they say "Guten Tag"
So when you meet your freund on the street ...

In Japan they say "Konnichiwa"
So when you meet your tomodachi on the street ...

In Russia they say "Privet"
So when you meet your droog on the street ...

In the USA we say all of these and more,
'cause people living here came here from every single shore.
Doesn't matter how you say "How do you do."
It's a happy little holler, makes the world a little smaller.
It's a message you send to connect to a friend.
It's a mighty fine way to share your day
with a fellow human being.

Howdy, Y'all!

story of Beijing, Shanghai, Gansu, Ningxia, Hubei, and Guangdong

no story is complete
Si ying is lost and hurt
not sure why

no love is perfect
Ye hua is misunderstood
not sure how

be aware of Abbey Wood, Lilyn Crimson Cheekawood, Gabe Mugroofsz,
be known to Amelia wilson, San Francisco, Paisley Teeder, Sherry Wood,
be knowledgeable to Yike Song, Yi Dishui, Yi Jianmei, Yi Shubiao, Yi Hongxin

Jiu Xinyi and Liu Hua shall feel great
regardless what Yang Guoping and Wang Jiuzhi believe,
Brett and Amy as they are, all seem exceptional

Xi Jinping and Peng Liyuan may not at peace
but grace does fog Xi Mingze and Tara Robinson,
a daughter Melania Layton is cute to Leigha Layton

thanks to Barack Obama, robert Black, Laynie Henry,
a shine of the sun falls
all lighten up via Zach Bogue, Joseph Singer, Jerry Yang, and Ann Blair
