Raggedy Tragedy~

Raggedy Tragedy~

A Poem by NoneOfYourBusiness akaKITTY KUTABAREakaCandyPole

Life built this suit around me
zipped it up to the throat
sins stitched at the sleeves
love patched up at the hips

a rusty brooch of wrong turns pinned to my collar


You didn't expect this, did you?


Over dinner
a little boy crawled out of my wrist
and scaled your stroking fingertips
awed at the diamonds in your cuff links;
how you could go on touching me
after that
I couldn't figure
for the life of me

Over wine
dark music burst from my ripened lips
flowed in thick, cherry rivulets down the side of crystal glass
my chin;
how you could lean in
and kiss me, anyway
I’ll never know

Over desert
ghosts escaped my eyes
and my gown became rags
my glass slippers turned to dust
and my strings cut a tesseract path across my journeys;
how you could still touch the little ragged human
in my tragedy
was such a surprise

Life built this suit around me
tied it with a crimson sash around my heart
joys sewn into my clavicles
smiles prints in henna with leopard spots in a garland around my waist
a pearl ring of right turns adorning my cartilage

I didn't expect you, did I?

with a magic flute you draw me, down the path of realizations, some stark and alarming yet, open on a secret glade, of all hearts hidden wishes, growing on display, and drift with meadows gossamer, so blissfully away...sigh

the gift of your poetry is so poignant and deliciously subtle while at the same time marching boldly right straight through ones mental "writing barriers." I never cease to be breathless at how artfully you can untether my parameters!

It is lovely to read you here again my dear

What an Excellent write... I must sit in awe at the true writing prowess you put on display flowing seamlessly from moment to moment you are an Amazing Writer. and to convey this story so over told yet breathing a new truth a new mystery into it... Astounding! I really need to seek more of your counsel. Thank you for once again raising the bar! While I'm steadily wishing on a star, trying to make it my business to find out who you are! :)

much gratitude~ :)
The rustic nature to your writing always appeals to me in myriad ways. There is such an element of "oh my gods" to this piece. Taken unaware by the barriers we can build. However, your precise and attuned wording is something to relish within that turmoil/liberation.
So many life changing emotions versed in only a way you could verse them.
I stand in awe time and time again, much love xox

here we see woman with all her sensitivity to life, parched of sunlight, broken, yet given to, restored to vibrancy. i love your work, you articulate poetry from air and it has a beauty to it that is heart-breaking and heart warming all at once. i love that natural talent and the way that you write. fantastic.
