On My Poetry for Review: Vanished

Vanished is an autumn/Halloween themed poem. The poem makes us think about those of us who are lost.

This poem is in the same dark energy as our already published blockbuster chapbook: The Descent. Vanished is currently on My Poetry Forum for review. Read it for yourself and leave a comment. 

If you would like to read other poems by DL Mullan, be sure to check out the forum for more of her selections under Undawnted

This chapbook houses "a darker breed of poetry." Plus new poetry that has yet to be seen by the general public.

"As a genre poet myself, I have to tell you how much I enjoyed this."

"The poem [Breathe} is as scrumptious and sensual as it is dark and deep."

"This is first for me. I have never read genre poetry before. I love it. Hugely imaginative and utterly unique..." 

Visit The Descent on Undawnted.

Have a great and wonderful day.

Must Love Chocolate

There's nothing more satisfying than chocolate. For those people who do not like chocolate, you do not know what you are missing. It's like caramel but with an addictive quality: caffeine. 

Yes, I know, caffeine will rot your brain. I have seen the studies, but you know what? I don't believe everything that is presented to me by the establishment. Corporations pay to get what they want out into the public eye and I have to wonder why be so glum against chocolate? 

Or coffee? Or caffeine? But it's addictive... so is my middle finger if I use it in the upright position repeatedly by itself like I'm supposed to. ;) 

Is it because your company's product is in need of sales so you dash my antioxidant rush? Shame on you. And the reason I do not put much stock in scientific studies unless they are independent in nature.  

I love my chocolate and I have been craving it lately. That must mean I need some magnesium. Well, chocolate has magnesium, problem solved! 

I guess I should get a cocoa plant. Then I would never be out of stock. Believe me, that's a rough patch in the house when chocolate is MIA. 


Imperfection is the New Perfection

Perfection, everyone seeks it. No one attains it. Not really.

I tried to be perfect once and almost caught that tiger's tail. I tried to be everything to everyone all the time. I would go home and sit with my computers emotionally exhausted. I would try once again to be an artist, poet, speaker, and writer that was perfect. 

Now that I can't remember what day it is and that I have been betrayed by practically everyone in my past, I don't care about perfect anymore. I am more into living in the moment. The here and now and happiness is better than any perfection I could ever have found. 

Why be something you are not? Peer pressure? Social psychology? 

Or, waste of time?

Trust me, it's a total waste. Why waste covering up the jewel of who you are on swines who can never appreciate it? Be a diamond in the rough that is shining yourself up for a better future. 

I'm glad I am not trying to be perfect anymore. Hell my illness won't allow it anyway. The best I could ever hope for is to be happy, healthy, and successful. 

If I was a perfection freak, I would be getting my kitties groomed instead of letting them play in the bathtub. What is the allure of an empty bathtub? I'll never know. 

As to the people from my past who have stuck by me learning and growing into the person I am today, and believe me, it wasn't pretty, I really appreciate and adore all of you.

Have a great and wonderful day!

No Country for Old Women

So I had a crappy morning. Terrible nightmares will make anyone a little grumpy, but I soon found someone the universe sent to me as recompense: an old cat.

S/he has now decided that s/he too is going to live in my garage with the other kitties. Everything is fine until food time then this new cat growls while s/he eats. Poor kitty. 

I shush the kitty so my others will eat. All except for Irene, my cats have not been aggressive with their meals as they know I hand out equally from the can. Irene has since become quiet when she eats. 

However I went inside and got a second can to feed everyone and give some more to this new dark gray and black with long hair cat. S/he looks old. S/he should be in a home with an old woman watching television with s/he on her lap.

I'll wait awhile before attempting a stroke to see if the new cat is skin and bones or not. S/he sppears rather healthy albeit beat up and scared.

I guess that's how it is in the world these days. It's not a place for old women especially if you are a homeless cat. 

The universe decided I should shrug off the evil of my former life because it's really not my burden to carry and showed me that I am needed even just to give that TLC I am so famous for to the underprivileged felines of the neighborhood.

Have a great and wonderful evening!

Living the Vida Kitty

I never thought in all my life that I would be sleeping as much as my cats. 

I have so much to do and not enough money to do it... or any energy even if I was flush.

There is a virus going around that knocks you down, then a bacteria gets into your chest, and then the virus comes back to finish you off. That is literal. I have heard of others dying of this so-called flu, but I don't think it's the regular flu.

I know I have it. I have mucous  in my throat and chest; post nasal drip, chills, over sleeping... the works!

The illness began back in December, I fought it back with vitamin C packets and raw organic garlic but it came back this month. Well, I went out grocery shopping and that will get you every time! 

So I'm back on the vitamin C and garlic.

I' beat a similar infection/virus last year. It's just that if you don't take care of yourself and increase your supplements, and garlic, you can put yourself at undue risk.

This afternoon, I fell asleep listening to an online newscast I like to watch every week. I got onto myself, then I realized: if you are falling asleep for little reason then you are probably a lot sicker than you think you are.

For this weekend then I am going to live the Vida Kitty. I'll go get warm in the sun in the afternoons but for the rest of the time: it's bed rest, liquids, online television shows, supplements and garlic as far as the eye can see. 

I hope by next week this chapter of fuzzy mittens and luluabies is over. I have bulk trash to get out by the curb and I can't annoy the neighbors with a trash heap if I'm coughing up a lung.

Stay safe and be well!
