Janet Kuypers also read material from from her 2017 book releases “(pheromemes) 2015-2017 show poems” and “(pheromemes) 2015-2017 poems” as the finale readings to the Community Poetry @ Half Price Books reading in Austin.

Making the Best of It. A Video Text Poem by Sara L. Russell

 


 

Make time for oatmeal
slap it on your face
A mask is always useful
 
Think about Mindfulness
enter the id
explore the more spiritual
 
Get into baking
throw nothing away
cut your own hair
 
A virtual pub quiz
almost the same
as being there
 
So here is Friday
a bit like Thursday
by another name
 
Here is a message
stay home save lives
be good, play the game
 
Here comes a baldy
With cold dead eyes
to tell you again
 
Here’s a comedian
saying the same thing
but makes it a joke
 
There’s good little children
there’s a good housewife
that’s a good bloke
 
Spring is forbidden
summer is cancelled
commerce has died
 
So dance in your bedroom
sing into your hairbrush
Pretend they all lied.
