Funny Kind Of Heaven

Giulietta Masina in Fellini's La Strada

Giulietta Masina in Fellini’s La Strada

You know,

when I look at you

I laugh

Not because you’re a fool

Although you can be foolish.

Not because you’re a clown You juggle just fine.

Not because you tell good jokes

Sometimes you get lucky.

Not because you’re silly

There’s a bit of a child in you.

Not because you can’t match socks

(I’ll let that one slide).

It’s because I love

The hell out of you!

Funny kind of heaven

We’ve got going on between us.

    I agree. You have the way of putting mundane things into orbit. That talent says a great deal about your personality. I hope you are publishing and if not I wish I knew the people to come and sweep you into fame.

  13. I like it. And what is the secret to matching socks anyway? They’re all the same socks and they still don’t match.

  25. I love the rhythm here, long-short lines, I’m thinking jazz rhythms. Any doubt as to what is being expressed? Not to my eyes (ears).

    I didn’t know my socks didn’t match until I read this and looked at my feet.

      Thanks. Beta readers and/or workshops have their place. Don’t depend on them too much. It’s easy for a writer to fall into the trap of wanting to write “like” a professional, as they see this is a way to publication. I think it’s more important to work on your own voice and find a way through it. Good luck!
