Obscenity

Obscenity

A Poem by Samantha ~virginpoet


Poet
since we're
so far apart
I'd like you to

Write me

No!

Not like that

I mean stick your
dirty little pen

In

The ink-bottle of my being
and spread it all over
the page

Spill some ink
get your fingers dirty
don't clean it up

Write longhand and don't stop
swirls on the capitals

Please

Don't dot the i's
or cross the t's

Make the words colorful
but keep the sentences short

Cuss and swear

Invent your own grammar

Do it your way

Think of all the things
your English teacher
said 'Don't Do'

Then do them

Let my sweet black
liquid ecstasy flow

Be Romantic
do it old school

Think John Keats

Baudelaire

Blake

Emerson

Byron

And throw in a little
E.E. Cummings
to keep me
cumming

Get Erotic
lick my ink

Get Freaky
lick yours

Be a modern day
Marquis De Sade

Make my poem so obscene
a w***e would blush

And the world would cry
for me to be banned

Libricide

Even the dirtiest mind
would set a fire
to censor
ME

I like how you use writing terms in a unique and sensual way -- "Write longhand and don't stop swirls on the capitals," "Invent your own grammar," etc.. You mention the Marquis de Sade in the poem. That's very apt because it reminds me of how he was portrayed in the movie "Quills." He writes with ink and pen in the asylum and when they take those away, he is so driven to write that he uses his own blood on bedsheets to get out his feverish need to write. The speaker seems to be saying that is how she wants to be "romanced" in the poem--with all the intensity of a poet's drive to create art.

I always enjoy your poetry so much! This was another great one :-)
(But as a fun side-note, a lot of people actually write "e e cummings" in homage of his writing style)
Thanks for sharing!
