WHILOM

WHILOM

A Poem by C.
"

It's foolish to try to compete with Rhinoblaster.

"
A lace-y glove that shouts Victorian.
Coffee cups waxing and waning,
and the jibber-jabber won't die of asphyxiation.

Too bad.
In another life I might have liked girls.
But just like then, they won't shut the f**k up.

Agree - 'waxing and waning' is such a cliche.

Asphyxiation is a sadly underused word
And it's such a badass word
I tend to find my favorite parts in small bits of poetry
I get those mental images from the first stanza
It clicks, then it turns conversational, lays down the law, and then kicks me out
Exactly what I want a poem to do to me
Linger for too long and it gets stagnant
I like it, even if you don't
And the spirit in it of course too
