OK — wedding anniversary’s coming up next month. Time to slip on my romance pants.

I’ll crank out a super good poem for her. Yeah! Then, I’ll spell it all out on a huge tarp with Hostess Yodels.

It’ll take our feelings for each other and Yodels to a whole new level!

Let’s commence with the lovin’!

You’re sun rays, you’re moon beams,
You’re a bright shiny star.
Now get outta my dreams
And into my car.

Mmm — that’s very ungood. Really gotta stop listening to ‘80s R&B.

Our true love started.
We made a life and charted.
I wish Medium still hearted.
We are a family!

Curse you Addams Family and your snappy theme song!

With you, there’s no maybe,
Which makes me wonder why,
I’m such a baby
’cuz the dolphins make me cry.

Wow. That blows.

You take the good,
You take the bad,
You take them both …

Seriously? Seriously!?

This whole idea is going to pot!

Why is this so hard!? How do Anna, Indira, Terijo, Mike, Jack and other awesome poets do this?

Their words flow. They sing!

They also steer away from scamming old music and TV shows.

C’mon, man! You’re not gonna woo her with Hootie or Tootie.

Screw it. I need to unplug for a few days and try again later.

I’m beginning to think I have way too much media on the brain.
