Black Sonnet Cafe

A Poem by Damien Thibodeaux
"

This one is tough to analyze with the Cobain style lyrics. So if you want to know the meaning behind it, just ask.

Black Sonnet Café


Let us practice in the dark


She’s a nouveau poetess


In a black lace thrift store dress


Do her right and leave some marks    


Disappearance in the park


Everything just makes me stress


Living in this wilderness


Think I’ll go and shoot up sparks


In the company of w****s


Not so perfect, I’m a creep


Please come back, I want some more


Up all night ‘cause I can’t sleep


Now and then forevermore


Promises that she can’t keep


July, 2014

Author's Note

Damien Thibodeaux
My first sonnet, so the lyricist in me really struggled with the 14 line structure, iambic rhythm and weird rhyme schemes, as this example of Italian form: abba / abba with a cdc / dcd sestet. I took liberties with traditional meter, writing a trimeter-half-step poem.

I struggle with structure too. I think you did a fine job though.
I do like the Cobainesque lyrics.

I was partially right... Thank you Damien.
How did I miss this one? Deep, dark images - your trademark - and a great rhythm. The form is there, but with your own style Damien.

Thank you so much. I am deeply honored. I don't have the words....thank you.
Love this Damien, having accomplished that taunting feel in a sonnet makes it that muchly better.

The imagery is spot on too, reads as a dark encounter wanting to be revisited time and again.
