one week later…

November 29, 2008

I spin the can
of mixed nuts
peering into its greasy
kaleidoscope –

not a cashew
to be found

only jordans,
filberts, and peas
in my disdain.

They are all
that remain

of the feast.

    Poor Mr. Peanut. Crushed by bulldozers in Wilkes-Barre.

    Hey Frank. Happy Thanksgiving! Yes, poor Mr. Peanut. His wife is still living in a personal care home in the north end. Her name is Shelly.

    condolences, qazse.
    i empathise.

    my almonds were stolen from the deluxe mixed nuts can. none of my loved ones owned up, making a bushy-haired stranger or one armed-man the most likely culprits.

    Hi qazse,

    Now there’s a moment in time!

    I read that previous comment above too fast (with apologies to the writer…) and it came out that a bushy arm pitted man may have stolen the nuts… It’s a horrifying image.

    clancyjane – (btw: the deluxe collection sports a higher class of “loser” nuts) I must concur with your choice. The almond is a superior nut. I think it superior to the cashew in that too many cashews and you feel like a tepid quarter cut french fry.

    I hope you catch whoever it was I believe fencer is onto something.

    fencer – it is a horrific image! That is why I have taken to never eating nuts at a party unless there is a spoon with them. But that presupposes men with hairy arms will use the spoon and resist putting their booger glazed fingers fishing into the nuts.
