eyebrows

I was so sure it was spelt with an “i”

and the more I look at it,

the more I want it to be.

That apostrophe.

In a much more logical place

I would have told myself,

and logic got me through

when I was too tired to remember

(well, my logic. turns out that wasn’t objective…).

And speaking of logic,

there was more space to fill,

and I ran out of ideas,

I mean, how much is there to be said about one’s own appearance

when one doesn’t understand the task

in the first place?

In the second place,

one needs a great ending.

Is what I hope I was thinking

and not

hey,
where the heck are my eyebrows?

Somebody? Anybody?

I’ve never noticed this before.

Should I be worried?

 

I wasn’t broken

just a little tired.

Oh so tired…

      1. I think it’s kind of a double negative, reminds a joke. Teacher: “In many languages a double negative is normal practice, but no language has a double positive.” Voice from back of classroom: “Yeah, right.”

        1. Haha Is that one from your trusty legal team of ducks?
          Actually, I’d imagine it had more to do with that direct honesty…I probably started writing that I didn’t think I had eye brows, but then thought that wasn’t entirely true… I’m also guessing that was part of the exercise given, to use a negative. Whatever happened, I so enjoyed it all these years later.

              1. Bachelor in Parrot, majoring in Galah. Their languages date back to pterodactyls, when the dinosaurs ruled the earth, all similar, so it’s easy to pick up a new one with a little help, which I had from a toucan friend.
