Sonnets from Suburbia: Talking to Myself
Who doesn’t talk to themselves, Tomatoes? But do you love doing it? Penny Peyser, AKA Lady Penelope, extolls the love she has for talking to herself in her latest installment of “Sonnets from Suburbia” with “Talking to Myself”. Me thinks she’s on to something, Ladies.
Talking to myself is just the best!
I never interrupt before I’m through.
Opinions and facts I don’t contest.
Why would I? I so rarely speak to you.
The sound of my own voice is so darn pleasing.
I’m full of unsolicited advice.
Offenses? There’s no need to be appeasing.
I shan’t offend myself – to me, I’m nice.
Once in a while I do notice an echo
that makes me realize what I just said.
An awful gaff or brash bravissimo
in shame will make me cower ‘neath my bed.
I’ll never know if I could be endearing
if I’ve no guts to risk a public hearing.—
The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
