    I've got to say, Haunted, if I could write "trash" half as good as this stuff, I'd be feeling pretty pleased with myself! Keep the "trashiness" going, is all I can add!

    Dafy, you are too kind. There will be more trash and I hope you'll return for the next one! I edit the first post each time I add a new entry, just hover your cursor over the thread title. See you soon on the next trash day

    "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.

    overnight snow


    we weren’t aware
    the rain changed
    over to snow
    and snow melted
    into slush

    my boots squishy
    socks soggy
    all the while standing
    on tiptoe
    for the longest
    goodbye
    kiss

    I may be miles off the mark, and I may be reading too much in to this, but with a combination of the poem and your avatar, I can see a fond farewell on some awful, winter railway station, then a long absence. Done a couple of those! No matter whether I'm right or wrong, it's a beautiful piece of work. Thanks for sharing it. (Trash, indeed!)

    I appreciated it, Prince!!

    Dafy, I adore the visual you described and the storyline, why didn't I think of that! When I was writing this I was thinking of my driveway and then the scene moved to a New York City side street. The slush there is something else!

    Ahh its trash day again
    Loved the unexpected kiss at the end. There is a whole world of pleasure in an unexpected kiss.

    thanks Mary, be careful what you wish for, there will be more.

    yes Jerry, it's trash day again! I'm so pleased that the unexpected ending worked for you, thanks!

    This goodbye kiss goes into eternity as if by the power of levitation, at odds with the law of gravity totally inadequate to bring and keep the moment down to earth....

    Beautiful. Bar

    Thanks Bar! I must say that your comment is way more beautiful than the poem you were critiquing.

    "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."

    the little dancer


    she waited
    till everyone’s out of the house
    then ran into her parents’ room
    pulls out their bedsheets

    within seconds
    she’s in a white gown with a very long train
    waltzing with Prince Charming
    the love of her life

    focus.........

    she waits
    for her cue
    Massive Attack’s Angel

    ta tata ta dat

    ta tata ta dat

    from the heavens she descents
    in a jet black patent leather bra

    she’s a sensation in slow motion
    her sinuous body waves
    her soft and firm tongue rolls

    on hands and knees she moves
    along the edge of the stage
    right into their fantasies
    they wait till they bust
    just to feel her in the flesh
    they stuff 20s in her string bikini
    still they want to give her more...
    every tom dick and johnny

    but tonight
    the pole
    is her only lover

    Sic Transit Gloria Mundi! A lovely poem about a fall from grace. Or is it? I wouldn't like to judge the girl! Thanks, Haunted.
