Doodlin' (Blogophilia 12.6)



Sitting in a midtown cafe
Looking for a downtown girl
As a moped runs by
She doodles in the corner

Is she the connection?
Valentine out of season?
Shot in a heart cup
What was she drawing?

Sliding over to the table
My cup nests
Next to hers
As I sit down

Not looking up
She adds the cup
To her doodle
Smiling,

Reaching over,
I take her hand
Spontaneous combustion
Waltzing in 7/8 time.
"I've been waiting
For my completion.
Wishing star light, star bright
It did come true."

  2. doodles can tell you a lot about whats on a persons mind...
    I do it all the time when I am on the phone...
    and at boring meetings too... *shhhhh don't tell anyone about that*
    But they are supposed to read like ink blots I have been led to believe... lol
    I love the layout and wordage Christopher...
    and what a great video!!.. love it!!

    1. Oh, I have two columns for all my meetings: Right is for the meeting notes and Left is for my wandering mind. More than one piece on this blog started with a doodle.

  6. I have never been one to doodle. I do enjoy looking over another's shoulder as they take on the task.

    1. I always make it a point to see what they are doodling. I mean, if they aren't going to pay attention to me, I might as well.

  7. I only doodle if I am stuck in a meeting or dealing with people that bore me. It keeps me awake and looks like I am taking notes lol Good write!

  8. Loved it Christopher. I too, am a "doodler"...at the end of an 8 hour shift, I sit in front of a maze of inked sketches and thought fragments tossed on paper by my restless mind...it's that or die of boredom. The story --I loved too. I'm always a sucker for a happy ending! (Demme)
