Quarry

A Poem by Robert Trakofler
"

Spoken word and a video links are at end of poem:) Thanks for reading me! Note...The funnel spider is very prone to eating her mate:/

"

I beg and implore

That you please understand

This plight you endure

Though it is out of hand

Caught in the allure

Of a bad circumstance

My means of procure

Is purely happenstance

But truly adore

In this brief chase romance

I know you abhor

This entanglement dance

I’ll tell you once more

It just happened by chance

Not personal of course

I promise to glance

With such love to your corpse

I’ll say in advance

For your life giving source!

We spiders must cram

Our quarries we engorge

So please understand

That your wretched divorce

Was simply not planned
Spoken word link...

THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST VOCAL CLIP I'VE HEARD OF YOURS! You use a ton of vocal varying, vocal ups & downs & emphatic moments & emphasis galore! This is what I would think that reading poetry must be all about . . . delivering a convincing vocal performance! As for your poem, even tho I read the spider note first, about eating mates, I didn't catch that from your words at first, but rather your message seemed to meander into that concept little by little until it was strongly felt toward the end! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

a silken scenario .
Didn't need the spider [shudder]. Well penned and great spoken word delivery. The dénouement was a cool twist.
