Shoulders with Wood

Shoulders with Wood

A Poem by barleygirl
"

photo: yesterday's delivery & I'm set for winter!

"

Internet fiends think they got wood to flaunt
but shoulders with wood is the mashup I want
my rancher-neighbor is strapping and nonchalant
tossing me a cord of oak so winter won’t daunt
his wood is widespread but no need to taunt.

As frosty air gives way to midday smolders
I’m perched on sunny lichen-covered boulders
with a tantalizing view of muscular shoulders
comfy chat where nobody needs to back-off
beats intercepting a tiresome trolling jerk-off.

Nobody is thinking about scoring a bogey
he shares his rescue of a snake-bitten dogie
frets if I think shooting snakes is inhumane
and how last season’s thirty-four inches of rain
knocked huge trees down in every drain.

Compadres bucked and split ten cords of oak
just for a few locals with woodstoves to stoke
all that firewood is already gone out to folks
worried we’ll get another wild winter that soaks
he says he’ll bring wood even when I’m broke.

That’s why I find dick pics so funny and trite
with only the flames between me and icy night
a big heap in my driveway that’s such a sight
a colossal woody will bring months of delight
thrown by shoulders unaware of his might.

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH YOU, MISCHIEVOUS MARGIE! But tell you this, think I'll move: the guy who delivers my logs doesn't have that.. attitude and self-awareness - (politely put, yes?P.. that yours do. Unless of course, my understanding of your English is different from mine! Smiled at the penultimate generosity and then, hurt my ribs laughing on the final stanza . As you know, needed that laugh. Cheque on the way! Blessings and giggles. xx

One of my favorite things to do is split logs that is one of the things I miss about camping and living in the sticks there is a very therapeutic element to chopping wood:) however your therapy is a bit different from mine:) LOL You always tell me you love how I take the mundane and turn into something else that is the very definition of this poem Margie:)

Many moons ago and after what seemed like an eternity in a cold swimming pool with my then tiny tot daughter we were changing, after showering. The daughter, dried and dressed, was put to one side whilst I removed my trunks to get myself dried and dressed. Unbeknownst to me she had looked at my cold, shrunk penis and at the top of her voice said " dad, are you turning into a little boy again" MORTIFIED.
My penis pic is waiting in your in box, and no, it will not fill it :))
Hi Margie, hope you are well

Indeed...that simple, humane offer of wood is so much more romantic than a stark, upfront dick pic. I love this poem for its humour and just great rhyming yet it has such a solid underlying message. Enjoyed this read and appreciated it very much.

So the log guy delivered a tree to you over his shoulders. Is this a winter thing or do you invite him in every month. I assume this guy is hot in a professional way. Is there a female equivalent doing the same job, cos I could rent a cabin, then we could compare notes. I keep hearing about fires, are you safe where you are.

Ah, yes, time of the year for soups and stews a brewing whilst gazing out the window at that hunk of a good neighbor looking out for ya. I can only dream about it now. Those days are long gone for this ole cow but my memory still serves me well. I seem to be finding that out more and more since I joined this site. Everyone is always writing something that triggers something from my long past. I love it!

I love the rhyming and the humor in this 'close to home' tale.

I love the title of this poem and could easily see this written in a more serious form. You always incorporate humor into your poems, a sign of a fun and free spirit. I like that.

Off to buy a wood burner, any chance of the phone number belonging to those muscular shoulders. :))
