Poetry on Odyssey: Loch Ness Monsters in Lake Michigan

A poem about disconnected relationships.

You say you understand me,

but I don’t really think you do.

I think you pretend,

wafting into my life like a ghost

walking through walls;

you’re there sometimes, when I’m scared –

lost, insecure, paranoid –

still I don’t think you’re real.

You’d like to be, maybe,

but you’re as foreign to my feelings

as the Loch Ness monster

is to Lake Michigan;

it’s not natural for you to be

where I need you to be.

And that’s not your fault,

but I wish you’d stop trying,

because it’s not like I go around seeing

any Sasquatches in Indiana,

and it’s disconcerting to find

obscene footprints stamped

on all my bad days

and having to guess that they came from you

without ever really being sure.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021

"NOOO. GOD NOOOOO."

Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix. The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.

They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch

Bitch

What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
