I have this friend who knows that I write poetry. So every time he sees me he wants to arm wrestle. i'm no match and I offer so little resistance and he knows it. So each time he understands that he "should" win since poets "figuratively" are what Hart Crane considered effete. "word foreplay" is what Plath called "The wings of such violence". It is not a mystery nor the fight against some leviathan. It is just mans uncivilized instinct; poems are barbarous!

Laughing at this unsubtle but clever beauty! It depends on which drink or poet. Smiling into coffee sipping.

ahahaha ... your little vixen you ... all i can think of is Hemmingway .. i think your very surgical poem is very stimulating young lady! not much of a drinker me self .. probably why i only produce something to post every month or two. i love the title .. very inclusive and is a warm invitation ... the sensuality and call to write is intoxicating ... this is a gem luv! so bold .. so real ... and the sprinkle of humor i read in it is just right ... i like this one a lot my friend! thanks for sharing!

I don't trust people who write sober.

It's why most of my poems are trash. If it ever reads well, I've been drinking.

Told you I was a narcopath... even here I cant stop talking about myself.

Sitting here watching the rain
The birds feeding on the crumbs
Have all fled the lawn
Rain now tinkled on the window

Charles Bukowski would have loved this...
I have that word foreplay rolling around in my head...and then comes the act.

As I sit here with an empty glass in my hand, this seems like a good suggestion. I think I'll have another one.
