life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

fruity goodness

I thought I’d win the spelling bee

And get right to the top,

But I started to spell ‘banana,’

And I didn’t know when to stop.


Banananananananana by William Cole

I get stuck on silly things

Like rainy days

when my phone rings

I get stuck in parking spaces

And hugs of biblical proportion

I get stuck in desperation of

empty wallets

And gas tanks

And stomachs

And stalkers

And water bills

And Freddies

Some days i just get stuck in bed

Covers all up o’er my head

‘I cant get up’, I tell my clock,

‘Cause I am stuck,

So just shut up’

I get stuck when my pillow gets hot

Or when it’s cold and I cry

And ice sickles hang from my eyelashes

I get stuck on random things

Like boots and shoes

And onion rings

When socks don’t match

Or there’s no cream

for my coffee

or my pie

I get stuck

when stupid songs stick in my head

The ones I just don’t want to sing

I get stuck when I think about what I want

Instead of what I have

I get stuck in a few more minutes…

Or another year goes by

Reminding me

I might get stuck dancing…

At your wedding to someone else,

Or on your grave,

Or in a dream about Madonna, and bananas and a cat who likes to pray

I get stuck eating meatball subs

And pumpkin muffins with extravagant amounts of butter

at times I get stuck in the blues

I know it’s sad

Yet mighty true

the hardest times to get unstuck

Are when my mind gets stuck on you

Stuck on you

Stuck on you

Yes I get stuck


St……stuck on you
