Umm, what are you doing?
I just wanted to say, I loves you…
Oh God, please don’t.
But I loves you…
I eats the ends of the banana bread loaf so you don’t have to.
Why do you have to be such a dork?
I never leaves you an empty toilet paper roll.
Knock it off right now or I’m going to smack you.
Don’t be angry, I Ioves you!
You make me angry, because you’re a dork!
I said stop it.
Don’t do it.

July 13: Flash Fiction Challenge
The Jaguar hasn’t moved in awhile. I watch him, while he watches me. Every now and then he flicks an ear on his broad head, or blinks in a way to suggest I’m of no real interest. Still his eyes stay focused on me, and mine on him.
We seem to share some sort of connection, though it isn’t from any sense of being alike. This magnificent beast, once wild and without equal, sits humiliated in his cramped cage. I stand before him, alone in a room full of people, completely lost in what I am told is freedom.

This came about as a challenge to write a piece of poetry using only song titles. I don’t claim to know what I’m doing as far as poetry goes. But then again that’s pretty much the case with everything I do in life.
How many titles do you recognize?
