my night as art

my night as art

A Poem by recantichize

i must weave between 
the exquisite ladies,
careful not to touch them,
for they are, 
as i said before, 
such exquisite ladies
and i am only decor
there for the entertainment
of their equally 
exquisite gentlemen.
from the former 
i receive glares,
from the latter 
propositions for favors
they could never submit
to such exquisite ladies.
thank god, 
for heavy makup;
it dams up the wells 
as i wonder how such things 
came to be,
that i am purchased by
and will likely never be
one of those
exquisite ladies.

The first mistake
A band of soldiers finds diplomacy in the dreg forest comes with consequences.

Another cerebral delight & one to savour long after the first hit. Absolutely delightful, at least in my book....N

. a very intriguing and thought-provoking piece of writing ... i don't really have an identity ... i'm still a little girl in my head ... quite puzzled by the different kinds of women around me ...

A piece driven by the curse of insecurity and the need to belong, and be admired - at least that is what I see and feel when I read and re-read your poem. I do admire you so; it is always a pleasure to read a work that is not as mundanely predictable as so many of the works one comes across these days. Thank you!

This is quite a tale and well written.

it really shows the difference between the real and the fake, what we should be and what we shouldnt, the ability to be able to control ourselves from imitating others just because it is a common thing in society..i like how you have written this with all the nice images, nice words picking, flow and rhyme..

Well I'm definitely not one of the "geniuses" that (the left-handed smoke-shifter) is referring to but I thought this captured a scenario many of us are very familiar to beautifully. Being a part of something while not actually being a part of something.

I was randomly thinking about cosmology versus cosmetology
earlier today when I was smoking a f*g in my happy spot
I still don't know what I was on about
but this is a great poem and I hope a few geniuses come by and give you a proper review
the way you juxtapose your voice and the title in this poem is stunning
there's other stuff, but I don't wanna hog the glory b4 the geniuses can arrive
