Ross Priddle Phrases Alphabetized C Mehrl Bennett Responses Alphabetized
A girl riding an innertube “a girl riding an inner tube”
A little electronic response A device for deja’vue
A lonely party, still make a contribution A paycheck
Actual colour or words representing colour Collaborate with Ross
Add love and pass on Confusion in the cock pit
All of these texts could explode Copyright infringement
Art yourself to death Crack rhymes with fact
As if one was doing nothing Create characters in situations
Business mixed with pleasure Dangling seat belts from car roof
Copy for use Death and taxes
Did we see the end coming Death from old age
Doing something that involves no screen Feel alive or visualize life
Face the ugly reality Finger falls from hand
Fooling around inside your head Flood the gates
Have you no telecommunication device His story
How many times over the same texts Into the clear blue yonder
If this is the one then where is the other Lake this poem
Just read the first phrase Listen to the rain
Massive debt to society Live and die
Nothing special made it break Loss of job or spouse
Now we are thrown Make it play instead of drudgery
Off Off Off Never alone if able to share
One of those ells must be a tee Open your mind to find beauty
Poetry is not crack Pay your respects
Really finding the breaking point Prioritize for art
Ride all the way over there twice Remember your dream?
Send your whole self Seeks an audience
The floating penny Send a valentine
The presence of one Skirt holding tight to her nylons
The way the glue pulls The final question
Thinking about the situation thru paper The world will end soon per the Mayan calendar
This is a knife in my heart Thinking in rhyme
We were there now we are here This is a spork
What were you doing when you were sleeping Unplugged


Who has time to do all this writing View the imbedded screen
Why not just let the texts rest Zen for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

 Collaboration by C Mehrl Bennett and Ross Priddle from January 2009

The original lists by both authors were unalphebetized; Ross Priddle’s list came first, and CMB’s list was composed as a response to each item in Priddle’s list, then both lists were reordered alphebetically.
