Poetry Styles - Formats / Romeo and Juliet Redux (sonnet)
« Last post by mojojames on Yesterday at 11:03 PM »
Poppin’ off at each other, cuddies were,
young kinky murrr! to a snoopy neighbor,
nasty shit-hounds worryin’ a preacher.
Hid out from a peepin’ nose-head stalker,
blown away by each other, hearts full jar,
gave each other a dose of neon blue.
Fam’lies pissed as tom's in a gay cat bar,
the twosome jumped up with a deadly clue,
blotter mixed with dizzy supah el-bleen,
yah, was gonna cool out their chill heart thang.
way too zonk, the cocktail, super-bad spleen,
turned both their lights to endless midnight blang.

Dressed formal for the hook-up, down for night,
eternity over them, laid-out tight.

cuddies – family/kinfolk
murrr! – young whelp/brat
neon blue – bliss
blotter – pure LSD
el bleen – pure Afghan heroin
blang – darkness/nothing/blank
hook-up – wedding
down – ready

Genuine Alley Poetry and Prose / Questions on the Way Over
« Last post by mojojames on Yesterday at 10:36 PM »
An otherworldly white rose appears full bloom
on the mantle to soothe our harsh tomorrows.
Where does the lithe spirit we abandoned loom?
Alive, alive in memory, not in sorrow.

The dread apparitions that claim you nightly,
will they too, come with us on our final run,
then in drear spite, haunt us anew frightfully,
and dwell in this dream’s remainder like a sun?

Will the fear of what we’ve come to understand,
proud in lop-top-sided triumph, embrace us?
A thousand turbulent miles from land lies more land,
here, the dolphins hypnotize with arcing trust.

The ocean of our past informs us, and gleams;
beneath tormented skies, prophets’ poems speak
while silent seamsters sew spirit to our dreams.
We can’t forget what we’ve lost for what we seek.

Can we summon the extent of what we know,
how we know it, and make when conform to now?
There is nothing more sound than a falcon’s show,
only a dove’s return with what love might allow.

Deep Surrender

Here in the dawn of an epic relationship
we speak with bliss about honor and respect.
Hanging out in the hush of nights embrace
we share secrets only we create selfishly.

Deep in the dark your kiss will render
the joyous gift that love surrenders.
With the glow of sunrise and a new day
I rejoice that you chose to come my way.

Mid winter and it's cold, air straight from the Antarctic.


damp chill
reaches right into the bones
while the sun shines

bare trees
skeletal against the sky
undressed beauty
