Says he: 'So - good news?'
Says she: 'Oh the letter - yes, quite good - my husband's father appears to have died'
Says he: 'Oh, sorry to hear it'
Says she: 'No - don't be - crazy old bastard - death was too good for him...'
Says he: 'Did he leave a large inheritance in his will?'
Says she: 'His recipe for cream pastries...'
Says he: 'I like cream pastries - oh by the way dost my hair lookest okay? I had my barber bunch it up and triangulate it so it resembles a boat?'
Says she: 'Sorry? No, I hadn't noticed... Wouldst thou like to go into the chamber while my husband's out shooting the riff raff - for a bit of - thou knowest - henky penky?'
Says he: 'Sounds like fun - I've never had a henky penky before...'
Says she: 'Oh - 'tis certainly fun! Er why are you looking at me like that?'
Says he: 'Just admiring your unusual helmet - did you make it yourself?'
Says she: 'No - my Contortionist bought it back from the wars - though I did however design the embellishments and inlays...'
Says he: ''Tis a very fine looking object - would thou mindest terribly much if I were to wear it whilst devouring thine henky penky?'
Says she: 'Why Sir! I do declare you have no idea what henky penky means!'
Says he: 'Yes I do! It's a type of cream pastry!'
Says she: 'I think you are sadly mistaken if you think I would want crumbs in my bed!'
Says he: 'Well please don't thou leavest me hanging here - art thou going to explain the term?'
Says she: 'I'm not sure - I quite like thine definition - wouldst thou promise to eat my lady particulars like a cream pastry?'
Says he: 'Will it take long? I do after all have a carriage to board before the midnight hour...'
Says she: 'That is an interesting point thou hast raised...'
Says he: 'Oh this - I had nothing to do with it - it raised itself - it seems to happen whenever I discuss cream pastry...'
Says she: 'But we've moved on since then - unless thou meanest thine tongue exercises?'
Says he: 'Are we talking about the same subject? Just to clarify because I'm not certain we are...?'
Says she: 'Well I wouldn't want to have to explain myself too clearly lest it ruins the moment (giggles)
Says he: 'Thou art inviting me to consume thine edible licorice flavoured pantaloons art thou not?'
Says she: 'Not precisely - I mean I suppose thou couldst if thou wishest - but I was referring to an even more intimate article of mine?'
Says he: 'It is beyond me to even guess at what thou mayest be referring to - what could be more intimate than-'
Says she: (in a hushed whisper) 'I'm talking about gobble gobble...'
Says he: (confused) 'No sorry - thou hast completely lost me...'
Says she: 'Wouldst thou prefer some cream pastries? I'll get the maid to bring some in shall I!?'
Says he: 'Well I am rather famished, and I do believe cream pastries wouldst really hit the spot at the moment!'
Says she: 'How about we both eat cream pastries - after thou hast eaten me first?'
Says he: 'Eat thou? Why wouldst thou wishest me to eat thou?'
Says she: 'Because I'm hot! Dost thou think not!?'
Says he: 'Oh thou meanest eat thou! Yeah sure - I'll be in on that. But thou must in turn promise to eat me too - reciprocate the favour as it were...'
Says she: 'We could do it at the same time - form a number so to speak..?'
Says he: 'Sounds kinky! What shall we call this number - 96?'
Says she: 'Tee hee - naughty boy!'
Says he: 'I think I'm getting a stiffy!'
Says she: 'I certainly hope so!'
Says he: 'It might be best if thou somehow slip out of all that material - look at this stuff! Thou hast more threads on thou than the average Egytian Mummy!'
Says she: '10.9.8.7.6.5.4.3.2.1... Blast off!'
Says he: 'Oooh!'
Says she: 'Aahh!'
Says he: 'Gurgle splutter - I appear to have caught a stray pube in my teeth!'
Says he: 'Don't stop! Don't stop!'
Says he: 'Hang on - Dost thou have a toothpick?'
Says she: 'Here - use this bobby pin... But I don't think it's mine - though it may belong to my Brazilian waxer - what colour is the item?'
Says he: 'Black'
Says she: 'Oh that be one of my husband's!'
Says he: 'That's got it! Now where was I?'
Says she: 'Thou wast- [gestures] and I wast- [gestures]'
Says he: 'Oh right - just get back into it then shall we?'
Says she: 'Mmm mmm!'
Says he: 'Mmm mmm!'

Just then her husband walks into the room, camera loaded and ready

Says she: 'Darling! Look! I've caught some more riff raff for thou!'

Walking along the road in the rain
The streets empty except for me
Think I might duck into an old bar
Get me something 12 years old or
Even older because I have a sure
Thirst for a old oak-cask matured
Vintage single malt maybe on the rocks

Tangerine peel left in bedded in sky.
With subtle glimpse of a rocket leaf.
Lavender scent fall from heavens above.
Fisherman watching the sky in all glory.
The sea fell in love with the tangerine sunset.

Wow! That was some party - how did I end up on a boat?
Lovely sunrise out there - I wonder where in Hell I am?
I don't recognise this place - not even from a postcard -
I know - I'll do a compass measurement and try locate it in
Google Earth! Hmmm the co-ordinates seem to indicate
It's a deserted undiscovered Island somewhere in the
Pacific where the natives wear rings in their noses and
shark teeth around their fat cannibal necks - I hope they
Like company - I wouldn't wish to crash their party - not
especially at this hour of the morning. Oh look there! A
welcoming committee - waving their spears - they seem
quite pleased to see me - I guess they don't get many
visitors around here being undiscovered and all - Wonder
if they speak English - that would be a boon to our civil
communication - maybe they'll have an interpreter or
one of those electronic devices

'What did he say, Senior Interpreter?'

'According to Live Search he say: ''Hullo! Me White God! You
Give me all your gold for these worthless plastic beads, yes?
Nice place you have here - I'd like to steal it and build resort
Complexes if you don't mind - not that it matters to a bunch
Of throwbacks like you because you won't be around - you'll
be shipped to some other island a long way away - Bikini Atoll
- how does that sound? Sound good you nincompoops? Better
Than you deserve blah blah blah..." '

There's a planet - it has a strange atmospheric thing going on which is outside of my understanding

What do you suggest we do? Blow it up!?

No - I think we should just go and have a stir with the primitive natives - let them take videos and photos of us and then disappear into the night so that their peers think they're nuts

Sounds like fun

Oh it is - even they start doubting their own sanity after awhile - hilarious!

Delta and her Goats.

While the wind is on the up.
Dust, goats flew up all over places.

I have landed in a tree.
Th legs dangle below.
I want to get down but now.
Dust up in my nostril maybe if sneeze it will sent back down.



MM Painted.

Multi color cover the fields.
With fabric of the landscape.
Lines from farmer machine in crave in dirt.
From gigantic hill top we see all across are color land.

This one was bad?

I'm confussed - and really pissed that my good poem has been lost

That was good zoo incidentally - the tangerine one I mean! (though your second was pretty funny as well)


So what am I doing?

Cows in trees

Cows in trees are silly things
And quite a sight to see
They flock there in the winter time
For to breed occasionally

Occasionally they just have fun
And root away merrily
With gay abandon, leaving the
Bulls to pull themselves, see?

How this works is quite complex
Involving the use of toys
Strap-on dildos are all the rage
To make them function like boys

The scientists are fascinated
And have taken many photos
You'll be sure to find them
On the web - just type in sexy potatoes

I'm an evil old witch and I like to *****
Nothing's ever good enough and my arse is starting to itch
Don't come too close or I'll strike you down
Using the curse I got from Medusa and it involves my frown

I live in a house up a hill which is steep to climb
No-one visits because they're afraid of me so I go out all the time
Seriously I'm rarely there - all me enemies elsewhere
This is neither here nor there as I'm the only party in town - so there

Don't come around - I really mean it - the place's a dump
If you do I'll bespell you and you'll have to run like an old oilsump
When you knock you'll be greeted by my toyboy Pierre
He speaks French like a native but I don't care - his accent curls my hair

Which is why I wear this new model sorceress cap
- To lock it all away, for if I don't - bugger! I think I need a crap!
I'll keep talking to you while I'm on the dunny
Just hang on a little while and don't dare run away

What else would you like to know? How I ride a broom?
I do that of course - we al do - though mine is turbo-charged - VARROOMM!!!
It gets me to the shops on time - even before they open
But I need a new carburettor - maybe you'll fix it - here's hopin'!

The plastic rainbow factory
where oompa loompas
are crushed to give
that certain hue
smilies strained through
colandars till they're pure
purple people eaters
mulched for months
Orange organs donated
by lemons
Blue lagoons dredged dry
now look into the sky
and see colours
better than nature could supply

Hey check out me pistil!
It looks like pistol!
But because I'm a flower
It don't quite have the power

Bees seem to like it a lot
So do butterflies and occasional moth
They give me a tickle and I give them
My pollen and it's sort of sexy - ahem

But it's not the real deal because nature is cruel
So I'm as lonely as could be - but there's a new
Technology on the horizon I keep my eyes on
Enabling Frankenstein plants to walk around

I can hardly wait! It's been so long since I had proper company
Another flower like me for all to see - we'll get it on night and day
But of course this is ridiculous and even ludicrous because
Plants aren't designed like that - but love should find a way

Why aren't you wearing a tent?

Do you think that you're in a MacMansion

Or perhaps a trifle bent

Watch out that the legs don't break

Under the weight of of the sky

For I see that you're only big boned

And actually as light as a dragonfly

A Woman's Heart

She was caught in a moment,
frozen eyes fixed ahead
in a dead unmoving stare
while her lips remain staid.

Her fair flaxen face
held in immortalized beauty
reveals nothing beyond
the beauty of the skin,
for she remains empty inside,

A painted vase in which
no flower shall bloom,
poor soulless vessel
however so adorned
is made no more perfect
for that very flawless unchanging
beauty in youth.

Condemned to eternal grace
and infallible poise that
however you gaze
no matter her admirers
she will forever remain
unknown.

They pin jewelstones on words,
diamonds that are softer than syllables;
those words paint pine board into good oak
that they build into handshakes and temples.

The great strip-ed temple, haven't you seen it?
It's built of 'good wood', it's built like they mean it.
And to draw them red stripes the children are bleedin',
tears on mama's apron while the poor souls are screamin'
please let it be real;

Let valor be real.
Let honor be real.
Let courage be real.

And build a temple with all of these
when you're building things in stacks of threes.

I know I should wither
beneath your contention,
but yet instead I writhe,
beneath the shadow of your contempt.

There is something broken
within me that compels me
towards your own sneering
cruelty.

In the depths of your
cold reptilian eyes
I catch a glimpse of
the suffering you torment
yourself with alone.

But I only seem to thrive
upon the cutting wounds
of your sardonic barbs
embedded within my heart.



I recently started reading a book about Caravaggio and so I looked him up and was quite taken with his breathtaking work, and so this is Caravaggio's Narcissus

Narcissus

The ladies hoped he'd look their way
Since they were looking his.
But he was looking his way, too.
It's such a waste. What can they do
To make him want what is?


The next image is by Jackson Pollock. I don't know if there is any subject in the painting except perhaps the state of the viewer's mind after looking at it.

Wrenching, the black comes up
from my lungs-

smoker's cough unsteadies
the paint can in my right hand.

Contorting, a small splash of vomit,
I hold my shaking body and
drop the scotch upon the floor;
dirty golden on the floor.

And when I wake up,
I find my heart has spilled out too-
late morning in the window,
the canvas speaks so true.

And if you were to ask me
Why I'm here,
I'd say - to let the coffee steam.

I'm not waiting for anyone, no.
There's no mafia-licked paper strewn
in the street outside.
Don't tell me, you think I'm a Nightjack,
here to rob the night of its
illicit crown.

No, I wait for no one.
I've haven't got an alibi
but believe me,
I'm here for the drink-drug,
the black heart grime of an
instant kick.

Don't shoot,
Look, the night is blackening still
Be on your way.
Leave this capped gentleman
To his night-numbness.
Walk on into the waiting dark.

Playing a Game

Jane plays a game of cards alone.
Eventually she wins
And so she plays again the game.
Addictions jerk us all the same.
Her mind through time though grins.

Is it okay if I post this link on the topic? (If anyone objects, I'll cheerfully delete it.)

Look at the stars
I can touch them
They are closer to me
Than the truth about our lives
