I have been accused
of bedding muses in a line;
tucking them deep in the soil, and then:
a whole season
to sample their fruit              She was

sweet and salty,
a queen with a Euphrates mouth;
o, she was long and sultry soot

and soot, rolling upon us, the depths
braved for a taste              And I

would cross the Red Sea again,
skin a black flag in the sun
for my efforts

for the single harvest to drink

To be the simple harvester
of her keep



An inside joke gone awry. 
Real title: Love Poems to Show Your Daddy #2

Gorgeous, just gorgeous, I love the spacing and the lack of periods at the end - it draws out the story of the poem and forces the reader to pause and ponder at the end of each line. Splendid work as always.

I have been told that perhaps I should consider this one as more than an inside joke with a couple of nice phrases - do you think it stands how it is now?

:) K, thanks. I think I'm going to throw this into storage this week and send it off into the big bad world, then.

I am someday going to edit a volume of poetry that I will collect under the title, Poems that Make You Want to Drop Whatever You're Doing and Fornicate the Nearest Thing that Moves, Fornicate in Every Way that You Know How and then Some, Fornicate with Reckless Fucking Abandon until the Neighbors Call the ATF and the McWhirter Twins Rise from the Dead. This one, and the other 2 I've seen of this series, would be among the poems I would include in the collection. With your and Fuzzy's permission, of course.

I would say more right now, but I need to drop whatever I'm doing, etc.
