Bus poem

So a friend of a friend (not Edward Applebee) had a poem accepted to this year's round of bus poetry. Since I've become a somewhat faithful bus rider, I've been looking for it.

A few days ago, I noticed a really swell poem. I liked it so much I dug out a pen and paper to jot it down. Then I noticed it was by this very friend of a friend! Here it is...you'll like it...thanks Joe.

Conversations with my heart
by Joe Walker

hey bullet dodger
swooning cliff diver
genius in a jumpsuit
Your chute's on backwards.

Let's disassemble
this lantern
toss out the pieces
hold the lighted wick

Let's work on this poem together
every day
risen and steady
like it has no end

Woe upon your Cylon heart
There's a toaster in your head
And it wears high heels

Number Six calls to you
The Cylon Detector beckons
Your girlfriend is a toaster

Battlestar Operatica
