THE FAILED ODE

THE FAILED ODE

A Poem by kublakhan27

"
Broken splendour writhes
in agonized forfeitures
of all hints of an idyllic
compromise against the grain
of your insurgent campaigns
against my bravery
Insolvent decrees against your brevity
If I have the sliest quip
nipping at my showman's disposal
it will curtsey in the guise
of a sheepish candidate
for a cower under your
unperturbed wordsmith's profundity
of intellectual retrieval
Take the remnants of my revelry
for storage in a shelter
of misplaced dedications
You deserve ballads at this stage
and all I have for you
is the abstruse skinnings
of a sated body's incorrigible skin
Technicalities equip chemistry
to their invincibility of logic
and here I am with flaccid either/ors
that enlighten neither side
of my decision
I am doomed to an incursion of indifference
amplifying how little this
imagination has to say compared
to your compendium of knowledge
in your bottomless philosophy
where intuition bottoms out
and I remain to rub my wounds
of frazzled confidence
in once-informative
poetic observations

Ah, Kubla, women can be extreme [email protected]#$! sometimes, right? We get so caught up in control, we steal a man's manhood, then we wonder why on earth we married such a weakling? I complain about my man's insensitivity and selfishness, but I've fed that particular monster; and it's my mess to fix. Men trying to regain their voice in a relationship have an uphill battle just as difficult. I think most women like strong men. Strong men are sexy and confident. The trick is not whipping them slowly over time. Can you imagine John Wayne or Yule Brenner, Vin Diesel or Russell Crowe kitten whipped? They'd lose all their mistique and magic. Men need their cajones to be men, and women have got to learn to stop putting them down and shutting them up. I loved this composition. Great writing, my friend. 100/100

thanks for turning me on to Boston .. have not heard them before .. the lead singer reminds me a bit of Freddie Mercury .. (poor Freddie .. he is so missed) .. just sitting here listening to the music ..

who in the world have you been talking to my friend?? ;) and are you making jest of your gift of word smithing?? i believe it is certainly your forte .. along with those ever unfolding layers of humanity and psychology .. glimpses through the portal so to speak .. love your stuff .. not disappointed to read another poem from Kubla!

Just Wow. A lot of words, I never heard of it and have to search in google for the meanings. Really great writing.

your "abstruse skinnings" are pretty damn good.

the poet who feels he doesn't have much left to offer, offers much more than he thinks.

i used have informative observations as a poet...but my intuition bottoms out...

the crippled poet laments....we have all been there...well some may not admit it.

and my imagination becomes indifferent.


but i have felt stale, overdone, useless with my words many times...

always much to digest and ponder in your writes, Steve.

you are definitely one of the best.
