When Words Fail

A dinner plate before you laid,
I swear to make this short;
I will not stay but if I may
Just serve you the main course.

No words I’ve writ were ample yet;
You neither hear nor see.
So, I’ve boiled my heart for you to feast
With olives, and dates, and tea.

  1. Boiled hearts, my mom feeds boiled chicken hearts to the three cats that we have in our house (not as pets; they just up and decided to live here and they’ve been doing so for the past some years), when boiled–those hearts–glow all yellow and the rotten ones purple, and it’s weird, but those cats eat those weirdly luminescent hearts and then they smack their lips, take off their bibs, say “Jolly good,” “Bully, my fine fellow,” “Cheerio” and just up and leave.
    Cannibalistic humans with a palate for boiled hearts and olives and dates and tea will do the same. Keep your heart strapped in its organ chamber of dark and bones and lung surroundment. Keep your heart close And adrenaline shots every odd Sunday will do you good. Eat beef seekh kebabs with curry. Drink soy sauce straight out of the bottle. Beans, beans, the magical fruit. Eat it by the tootfuls.
    Words are never ample. It’s like comparing apples to oranges.
    Also, I wanted to tell you this one weird joke I wanted to tell you:

    A monkey is sitting in a tree, smoking a joint, when a Lizard walks past. The lizard looks up and says to the monkey
    “Hey! what are you doing?”
    The monkey says “Smoking a joint, come up and join me, my cold-blooded friend.”
    So the lizard climbs up and sits next to the monkey and they have another joint. After a while the lizard says his mouth is ‘dry’, and that he’s going to get a drink from the river.
    At the riverbank, the lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls in. A Crocodile sees this and swims over to the stoned lizard, helping him to the side.
    He then asks the lizard, “What’s the matter with you?!”
    The lizard explains to the crocodile that he was sitting in the tree, smoking a joint with his new monkey friend. He then explained how his mouth got dry, and that he was so wasted that, when he went to get a drink from the river, he fell in!
    The inquisitive crocodile says he has to check what type of joint Monkey is smoking. He walks into the jungle and finds the tree where the monkey is sitting, finishing a joint.
    He looks up and says “Hey, MONKEY!”
    The Monkey looks down and says “FUUUUUCK, DUDE……. how much water did you drink?”

    Another one:
    Joe had suffered from really bad headaches for the last 20 years. He eventually decides to go and see a Doctor.
    The Doctor said, ‘Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine and the pressure creates one hell of a headache.
    The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.’
    Joe was shocked and depressed.He wondered if he had anything to live for.
    He had no choice but to go under the knife. The surgery cost him $15,000.
    When he left the hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself.
    As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life.
    He saw a Men’s clothing store and thought, ‘That’s what I need… A new Suit.’
    He entered the shop and told the salesman, ‘I’d like a new Suit.’
    The elderly Tailor eyed him briefly and said, ‘Let’s see… size 44 long.
    Joe laughed, ‘That’s right, how did you know?’
    ‘Been in the business 60 years!’ the tailor said.
    Joe tried on the suit it fitted perfectly.
    As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, ‘How about a new shirt?’
    Joe thought for a moment and then said, ‘Sure.’
    The salesman eyed Joe and said, ‘Let’s see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck.’
    Joe was surprised, ‘That’s right, how did you know?’
    ‘Been in the business 60 years.’
    Joe tried the shirt and it fitted perfectly.
    Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, ‘How about some new Underwear?’
    Joe thought for a moment and said, ‘Sure..’
    The salesman said, ‘Let’s see….. size 36.
    Joe laughed, ‘Ah ha! I got you! I’ve worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old..’
    The salesman shook his head, ‘You can’t wear a size 34. A size 34 would press your Testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a Headache.’

    1. “Organ chamber of dark and bones and lung surroundment” — comment award winner here. Surroundment is the best word. And i literally was not sure whether the chicken hearts actually glowed. That’s how good the comment was. And two jokes? Getthefuggouttahere! Wow. (Clap) thank you fucking much 😊😊😊
