These poems are for Kush

Biases

I like blondes, but brunettes with curls are fine
Petite and thin are okay, but nice and chunky are better
Tall can be intimidating, I dont like that at all
Oh and I meant I like women , because today we should always clarify


Not too young (more than 20) and not too old (less than 50)
Like Americans, love Israelis, unduly fond of Russians (esp authors)
Love French language (and art), German music (and words), Italian food (but hummus too),


Chicken is nice, beef is blasphemous but yummy, but ham will always make me slip
Software is pretty designs first, open second, affordable third, and easy to use always

I like Christians, Sikhs, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists (and anyone else I may have missed)
but not in that order and
spare me the zealots and the agnostic atheists


I like cute monkeys and pandas too,
and wonder which religion they should be assigned to


Kids are nice, I am a Dad of 5 yr old after all,


people who hurt kids, make me angry like nothing else
politicians who cash on collective stupidity for votes are next on that list


manipulation and deception, well it depends.

movies, paintings, poetry (well that figures)

writing, reading, observing people

———

these are my biases, and they are now exposed
for you to send me spam, or sell me another thing I donot need


These are the noises (in my head)
the buttons that you need to push
and you will get me
if not all, but most of the times

  1. Don’t ask why, but this poem strikes me as extremely interesting. In a good way, of course. Sometimes it’s nice just to read about what other people like — like getting another perspective, since all I see most of the time is my own bias.

      i was inspired by the rolling stones of course , especially the rolling stones song “satisfaction”, a man on TV, telling me how white my shirts could be,but he couldnt be a man, because he doesnt smoke the same cigarettes as me
