    Gunpowder Experiments
    I spend the nights in her suit and tie,
    just working on my tan
    It’s easy now that I’m in house arrest,
    I ain't got anythin’ else to do

    I'd like some time for myself in bed,
    to run around screaming in complete silence,
    and for someone else to be there,
    to share in their own contentment

    I don’t know what the opposite of dynamite is,
    even though I know about implosions
    I’m trying to reinvent gunpowder,
    but keep comin’ up with the wheel

    I saw myself the other day,
    walkin’ down the street,
    and he thought to himself:
    "What kind of loser walks down a street?"

    Or up a street,
    for that matter?
    Who even does that anymore?
    That’s certainly not in my wheelhouse

    I could use a wheelhouse,
    by the way,
    I've got a lot of wheels lyin’ ‘round,
    from my gunpowder experiments

    I'm infected with love.
    It's oozing from my pores,
    popping out of pustules,
    exploding from my nose
    as I sneeze my disease
    of love,
    sickening, gushy love,
    all over your face.
    You're welcome.

    Thank you, my puppy
    you spared my hair
    No creature, no man, no dog
    shall go there
    beware my hair
    in your underwear
    put it over there
    in the ashtray
    smouldering

    mmm. mmm, second stanza smouldering

    Ode to the Load
    That Rose For You




    Ode to the load


    You helped me grow


    Ode to the load


    You'd never know


    Ode to the load


    That rose for you


    I think about you


    So this is my ode

    still
    still
    still
    still
    still
    sit still
    all movement is nil
    or losing favours the spill

    I adore
    that does not
    adore me
    and that is just
    the beginning of me.

    the world of
    slimming
    is trimming
    a bit of weight is
    a bush worth strimming. :supergrin:

    Actually Decent Uni Halls
    The Sun moves across the sky
    Like a Sun
    Waterfalls
    Butterfly wings
    Everything is big or small
    You may have noticed
    This poem doesn't rhyme
    And the lines
    End
    In weird places
    It
    I
    Feelings
    Smoky, ashy grey
    Stony, icy grey
    A bit more grey
    Grey
    Brown
    Black
    Like a soul hidden from the Sun
    Sweat running
    Rivulets
    Raindrops
    Cloudy sky
    No Sun
    Fried chicken

    This poem has no title because I am an artiste and I do not need titles.

    I will confess this was inspired by a poem at the critique group I just joined. I hope this places you in a similar state of complete incomprehension.

    Where cushions are comfy, and straps hold firm.
    Roses are red,
    Zombos undead,
    His name were Fred,
    And Simon then said,
    Sleepy, off to bed.

    Take a word, Nerd
    Not that word. This word, stupid Nerd!
    Now, Nerd, take this word.
    Put it with those other fuckin words!
    I fuckin hate workin with words and goddam nerds!
    Now, take this poem and shove it up my ass, so it can be all that it can be, in the can.

    in all the meanings of the words
    there is not a worst call
    then a cynical fall
    it is visual and appall
    it's best to stay small
