A Feminist's Nightdream

A Feminist's Nightdream

A Poem by Marina
"

#14

"
She watched in horror
as the night undressed before her -

the pregnant lunar
slipping seductively
from her onyx velvet gown
slivers of light splintering
the darkness of her patch
revealing all her
mountainous majesty -

oblivious to the
tremulous twitching's
of her audience
of a billion awe-struck stars
the rising
catcalling whistles
of the misogynist wind
and the chorus of delighted
grunting's from a
pen load of Earth bound
chauvinist pigs -

and she damned this mistress
with all the misguided
hate in her heart
vowing to rise and applaud
the soon to blaze
blood red sun -

and to watch with
pure, unadulterated glee
as he smites the daylight
into her sluttish
heavily made up
rouge-cheeked
moon face.

This read like a tv show in my mind. Very cool. Very detailed and word choice was spot on the create live action and genre. I try doing this type of work myself, so I can understand how difficult it could be to write. But, wow, you did so splendidly. Wonderfully explained and expressed. Tyfs

The last bastion on that stage of life that takes you down, then takes you further down just to remind you how far down you've sunk. Maybe at the end a glisten of light pokes through the night, reigniting days gone by. Like your tragic ones, makes you think about times gone by.

Dear Marina. The poem is amazing and you are welcome.
dear Marina... you have encompassed the dark side of life with the
romantic dancing stars intwined in Moonbeams of pure intentions ...
Even the tainted lovers can reach toward the Heavens and gently
ascend upon the earth to gather up the Petals of fallen flowers.
Poetry gives us a Chance to dance and enhance the Primrose Path.
tenderly, Pat

Hi Marina, I'm broadening my horizons by reading creative writing that might stimulate my own efforts. You didn't disappoint! Elegant, flowing, and uniquely creative. I enjoyed it overall! If anything, there's quit a juicy mouthful of descriptive words packed into each line. I had to read it a few times to absorb it all. Perhaps that's my own issue. Good stuff. Thanks - from a scientist who works with engineers! :)
