check me out

Hey there, I am so excited to share this with the world...

Here is a little sample that I posted a couple years ago but wrote many years ago.

tippy toes

Im a vulture wearing english clothes
a night hawk on my tippy toes.
I might be a night time gambler,
killin' when no body knows. I watch
the little chickies peckin' they never
look around- no, no. I scoop to claw
the puffed out breasts, I grab them with
my tippy toes. The big ole rooster dont
see me commin' he never looks around
no no, the mamas cant run fast save them
when I squish em right between my toes.
Now I love to hear the chickies sqwakin, like
to stare em' right between the eyes then I
like to take my big beak pointed and I poke it
in so deep I cry. when the chickie pops fast
I swallow cause I like to keep my feathers
dry. Now I drread to be lookin' backwards
when the knife comes piercin' through the
sky, and I dread to be lookin' backwards
when the poison drips right at my eye, and
I dread to be looking backwards when a
bullet wants to say my grace, and I dread to be
looking backwards when my death is
coming at my face. Now I might be a night
time gambler, walkin' on my tippy toes. I might be a
night hawk vulture takin' right before I go. But I
wont be a road kill loser, lyin' flat between the lines,
if I dont see the plate glass window I hope the
lights dont make me blind. I cant dance away prancin'
-happy on my tippy toes.

Christo, you never cease to amaze me. What a great interview, photos and that poetry! I never knew you were such a good writer. I'm really taken with "words to live by" . . . profound and beautiful.

Christo Gonzales said...

thanks everyone - I know often times, in fact more often than not, my blog writing follows no rules and can lean towards snarky - trust me when I tell you I am doing this on purpose - people meet me and wonder where the snarky guy is...

Heff said...

snugs said...

Micky-T said...

Dude, hope this gets you that chance to have a place of your own, because if you ever do, I'm coming to NY to take you up on that offer you made me if I ever pass through, a meal from you!
I'll buy the beer!!!!!

Wow. Who knew you were a poet, too! by the way, I wonder how it will sound like aloud...perhaps you should include a video of you reading it. ;-)

Sippity Sup said...

You presented a poem on my Birthday (11/11) so I think I'll accept the gesture as a gift. Thanks. GREG

Can't deny it. You are an artist. Your cooking and writing skills make a great use of your hands.

So great to know you admire Pepin, he is really the "maestro".

Congratulations for the interview.

So now you're all famous and stuff! We can all brag that we knew you when! And I love that you say you're from New Mexico despite having lived in NYC for 25 years.

It was my pleasure to ask you the Five Questions. I had no idea that your interview would stimulate such interesting responses.
Be well! wb
