Found Poetry--

I have a large collection of magnetic poetry--something like fifteen sets spread across 32 square feet of sheet steel. I also have a futon with a black metal frame. Frequently the tiles from my magnetic poetry set fall off and end up in strange places, but somehow I woke to find the word "yet" on my bedframe. As a comment, I could really use some supporting words, "yet" just doesn't contain enough information for me. It was an interesting juxtaposition of bed and adverb, though.

Made it back from my family reunion, yay, only minimal drunk republican moments. Gritted my teeth at hearing the "N" word some 12 times from my aunt, politely turned down about 30 offers of margaritas/beer/whiskey/poker for money (don't drink, don't carry cash). Made it back, went clubbing at Elysium. Nothing like three hours of dancing with people in latex and being surrounded by a crowd of Goths doing the pogo to "Dancing with Myself" to counteract two days of being stranded in Galveston with extended family. Damn, I'd forgotten how much I loved 80's night!

Back, survived.

It's very cute to have words sneaking around the house and sticking to things. :)

Congrats on surviving your inlaws. Here's to outliving them and being a counterexample!

I'd like to write a poem about the words wandering off, but I don't really like poems about poetry, and I REALLY don't like poems about poets, so I'll have to meditate upon this one. It was still an interesting surprise, like the random association muse was sending me a message of some sort, but forgot to add a user's manual. Magic 8-ball says "Inside".

Yet
Perhaps a bit of a pretentious and overly Shakespearian (sp?) interpretation, but yet implies a vicissitude (i.e. changes in fortune). Perhaps it is a shortened form of 'the best is yet to come', or possibly, 'not yet, but very soon'. Or perhaps I just pulled that one out of my .

Re: Yet
I saw that, but it also implies a certain futility, or trial, "yet still he..." It's one of the most fraught monosyllables I've yet seen stuck to my bed.
