Here's your cocaine

Here's your cocaine

A Poem by +she plays with matches+
"

okay okay...4th review in....I've never touched drugs in my life! So if you can relate..so sorry. But impressed that I can write persuasively. Thank you!

"

Sit with me, and I'll prepare something special for you.
With just a spoonful of sugar,
I'll sweeten-up and embellish, this dead crow that once flew.

Get closer.
Your turn; take a blow of this snow.
I'm prepared to catch your nose bleed, inside my porcelain bowl. 
 

When finished,
let us dance beneath the chandelier. Let us gaze upon the dense opacity.  Let us see these new atrocities.  Let us observe, watch and listen, as our pupils begin to dilate and darken.  

And if we sing; this hare in my lap, the fish in the sink, we'll use them as our audience.  They will remain silent, but harken.


Watch my friend as the clock strikes twelve.
Snow White and her Prince will meet us here very soon.
If lucky, she'll bring you Cinderella's dress tailored in fine silk, and colored in blue.

Want more?  Use my razor to cut through the looking glass of maladjustment and calamity.
Regal with me; enjoy this moment of rolled dollar-ed bills, and frivolity.

I'll shuffle the cards.
Another poker game might make you feel light
as a feather. Bare breast dipped in dopamine, just adds to the pleasure.

The table can walk, the bird is alive now..hear it squawk.
Hickory dickory dickory dock.
When the clock strikes twelve the devil will come.
He'll bring the wine, and he'll bring the sweet rum.

((White powder coverlets the senses))

It's odd; you know?  How the ice turns soft. Soft becomes cold. Cold becomes hot.
Stranger yet...last nights spaghetti. It got caught in my throat, it still sits in my stomach, all tied in a knot.

When the clock strikes twelve, my neighbor will come.
He's my Cousin's, Sister's Brother, born from a different Father and Mother.  He'll bring us more cocaine.  But I must warn you. Can you keep a secret?  He's a little off. Perhaps a little insane.

Author's Note

+she plays with matches+
I can't possibly try to share with you my inspiration here. So I will instead..plead the 5th. But as all of you know, I'm always looking for a new way to mess with the reader. So my intent here, was to overwhelm the senses, much the same way that cocaine does.

I adore such trippy trips sideways round the honeycombed mind where inside of every crevice a rhythmic pop pop on an easel will claw away all fabricated nuances of what poetry is 'supposed to be' and deliver a brand new dish of mind bending delectable delicacies of imaginative play~ lovin on the cross pollination of fairy tales with urban drawl~to be completely honest with you I don't have to guess at all at the magiks that spark such creative wonders since my brainpan is chock full of squirming swirling images in broad surreal screen 24/7~ this banquet of exotic fare I understand better than everyday poetic ramblings~ this is Dali tripping the high wire fantastic with Nina Hagen~ LOVE IT~perfect meter also if I may add which adds to the mental cadence of the reader~

Ones nose does not simply begin bleeding, but what really made me question your authenticity was this line (lol) "Let us observe, watch and listen" what exactly are you talking about?

But this "Bare breast dipped in dopamine, just adds to the pleasure" this was such incredible imagery that i no longer cared about the rest of the poem, just couldn't stop thinking about the shape and size of said breast

Miss you...be good and take care.
True story, a relative of mine's ex-boss, years ago, made her try cocaine while at work late. She said it was like five pots of coffee and a bottle of sleeping pills, wired yet dopey and confused. Needless to say, she doesn't work for that weirdo anymore.

I can see the combination of languid and frantic here as well, so that's well done. Nice rhythms and internal rhymes and a very nice writing overall, I'd say.

Hope to see more from you soon.

I will say you make me feel, live in your poetry, even felt the buzzed:)
I think you are brilliant writer and every single expression of yours is amazing, the beauty I noticed about your writing is you never ignore details, Loved it simply mind blowing and poetry with freedom.

How awesome and inspiring this poem is. A play land set in a demonic world, cocaine is both your bedfellow and your murderer...I feel inspired

Cocaine is the devil in a white coat! I like the spin on the use with fairy tale characters, besides being other worldly when on drugs and taken a narrative from something innocent, fairytales always carry a dark moral.

This has a very Wonderland vibe to it. Everything becomes skewed when hued by drugs. This surreal scene is really quite compelling. It thrusts the reader from one strange tableau to the next with ease. You've done a fantastic job with this one.

insightful write....
high on cocaine ...the devil came before midnight ..with his snow white...
so many thoughts for me...I have lost friends to this drug...they were the same but a fruit loop nose ring sported always...lost my B.F. to this drug she actually had a dealer meet her at my daughters birthday party (I had rented a pavilion at a park ) but my last straw (not hers) she had a different dealer meet her at a local go-cart track ....I see only the cocaine in this write ...with spaghetti stuck in throat...words that reveal the truth ...truly
thank you for sharing much
