    Victoria’s other secret



    thrusted out of stone
    a pair of machismo torsos
    gratuitously oversees
    a very private portal

    on this side of the
    weightless fabric—

    skin...soft curves...
    a cleft most coveted...

    on the other side—
    mounting
    anticipation

    lacy silky scanty showy thingys

    do they cover as much
    as they reveal?

    but for these two
    stoic voyeurs...
    you can look but you can’t touch
    ; )


    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    Ghost Fog

    1.

    it was me
    last night

    just outside
    your window

    but deep inside
    your dream


    2.

    on the snowy bank
    trees have long dropped
    their green overcoats

    shadows of bare limbs
    tightly entwined


    3.

    what happened next
    will remain in the dream


    4.

    why...
    the next day
    always comes at
    the wrong time


    5.

    dawn drifts in
    loosely clad in a
    lavish white sheet

    feel it
    ...the fog

    so soft yet
    so corporeal
    you can wrap your
    arms around it

    and that’s all
    is left of
    me


    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."

    Les Miserables,
    Volume 1, Fifth Book, Chapter 3
    Remember this, my friends: there are no such things as bad plants or bad men. There are only bad cultivators.

    hi Thanks for visiting my trashy thread again

    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."

    I started writing this for the recent Subject Poetry thread. The subject is piles of files. But I was struggling with it. Not sure if it’s there yet....







    paper chase



    it looked majestic

    a mighty mountain
    of black accordian files
    each expands
    in hopes of fulfillment

    but there’s always some things
    that get buried

    how far down in the pile
    depends on how high
    the level of pain

    somewhere
    in cavernous darkness
    is a page from an old
    New York Times magazine

    it’s to show to my father
    he would be proud

    if only he had waited......


    ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~


    these days
    things are looking
    very different

    fragile
    .......futile

    between life goes on
    and what’s the point
    lies a moment of reckoning:

    even a mountain
    can be brought down
    by just one word



    SHRED



    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.

    I'm so touched by what you said, Mary. Its been a very difficult piece to write, thanks for allowing me to share with you.

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    Hi Haunted
    have just read all your poetry here and enjoyed it very much. You have a very different style to much I have read and you can count me as a fan.
    cheers
    JB
