Ain't That Just (this one's for you jess)

now ain't that just exactly like
something you would do
part of me is heart broke
part is furious with you

i miss our conversations
though we often disagreed
if i went left you ran right
if i said flower you said weed

but i always found of interest
whatever you would say
you confused me and amused me
but never led me much astray

obnoxious, obstinate at times
off that handle flying
but always brilliant and intense
and always really trying

to get that point across
because you knew that you were right
the problem was i was right too
of course we had to fight

and ain't it just exactly like
you to be such a pain
in order now to fight with you
i'll have to go to the astral plane

i will then traverse dimensions
i'll find you in that light
we'll say again i love you
then we can have a fight

I agree with all that you have written. This is a lovely tribute to Jess

Let your mercy spill on all those
burning hearts in hell( L.Cohen)

This is a great work, Cathy!
Spot on.
We would scream at each other as kid brothers would yet we learned a lot as well.
Good going!

i miss jess a lot. aside from poetry, we had some mutual friends and lots of interesting "fights" through comments. contrary to what he might have said about the afterlife, i know he can see this
