You have one new message

October 28, 2010

I want to enter
in an Orca’s pool game of
‘smack the trainer’
while Seaworld watches

Undress in silence
daughter of songs,
Your golden years are not forgotten


I want you
to be the one joke I remember
As I repeat you again and again
until we cannot stand


The sound of your name,
And the sound of my voice
sicken us both

    love the “i want you” “i want to” in this poem..can feel the longing…can feel the hope you got what you longed for

    raw lines of both loathing and satiation. Well done

    you know – first time when i read this, i felt only the longing and the playfulness brian mentions – this time i sense something else which makes me feel a bit uneasy – think it’s a thin line. still like the “i want” though and the rawness

    I think I’m going to stay behind the white line..

    Very raw… i liked the desperation and apathy in the same line…
