Gee, She Apologized!

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

  1. FRIST. That’s cute and funny.Clever rhyme scheme, it would always lend itself to humour, I’d think.

      Thank you. It worked well the first time, so had to do it for this one, too. Personally, though, I think I read WAYYYY too much Silverstein when I was a kid. God, I remember when I first read it. I was in fourth grade and nine years old and had just moved to the country from the city. I think it was the only thing that helped the transition. I still tell my kids about the snail that lives inside their nose. 😉

      Thank you, sweetie! I figured it’s a palinode and should also reflect the poem it’s retracting. 🙂 Besides, it was A LOT of fun.

  5. You are one apple loving lady!
