Lost in Venus

In Uncategorized on February 18, 2017 at 11:57 am

Sniff of chlorophyl

whiff of ether

Look down

fronds part and unfurl

cupping

leafy embrace

cool breeze

tugs you in

sinking the green

moss is velvet

plant yourself

lean in and

skin unfurls to mask you

the perfect kiss

inside out

you are draped

try to make sense

of distant calls

lose yourself in

the wind blowing

through her branches

are you dead

or are you

loving the alien?

***

 

lost on venus

lost on mars

press up against

foreign atmosphere

do you lose yourself

if you love the alien?

Counselling the Radiator

In Uncategorized on January 26, 2014 at 3:36 am

I hate
the way you radiate
energy and power
how you excrete
heat
and make weird noises
on the hour.
Your functionality
does not excuse
your lack of personality.
You are not everything to me
when that is what I demand
of everything.
You do not radiate love, radiator,
nor compassion or understanding.
So like a man
to think you can get away with fulfilling one mission.
I don’t want you to fix everything.
I want you to listen.

David’s tip of the day

096

Walking down the street the other day, I decided to travel down the lane less taken, and this is what I came across: words to live by.
Good advice to the youth of today. After all, no matter how rebellious you may feel, think about it: do you really want to let the rats in?
I liked my son’s reaction: how many times did the rats get in before some poor bugger had to go to the trouble of having that sign made?
A question for gourmets:Should we check the back doors of restaurants before we eat there? Or are we better off not knowing.
And for my daughters, excellent dating advice.
Ahh, rats

Young love, with scar

In Uncategorized on November 8, 2013 at 7:12 am

I thought you had a really cool tatt,

until I saw it was a line of sores that

you had been picking at.

I liked the way the blood caked.

I liked the delicacy of where your skin flaked

from last weeks sun burn.

You were this weeks stomach churn,

my latest after hours ache.

At least your hand picked scar would fade.

Useless adolescent longing,

like there was a hole in me big enough

to hold the world,

knowing that I would never find a way to get it all inside,

that there would always be a part of me that was empty.

At least your hand picked scar would fade

eventually.

Loving the alien

LOVING THE ALIEN

Sniff of chlorophyl
whiff of ether
Look down
see fronds part and unfurl
cupping
leafy embrace
cool breeze
tugs you in
moss is velvet
you sink the green
plant yourself
lean in and
skin unfurls to mask you
kissing inside and out
you are draped
try to make sense
of distant calls
lose yourself in
the wind blowing
through her branches
are you dead
or are you
loving the alien?

lost on mars
lost on venus
You have your compass
it doesn’t lead you home
spoiled forever
for earth girls now
spoiled like meat.
Press up against
foreign atmosphere.
Do you lose yourself
if you love the alien?
