I Dipped My Feet

I Dipped My Feet

A Poem by Markus Anthony
"

Curiosity kills the cat they say, but in my part, it kills me each day. I don't think I'd have enough lives for it.

"
I dipped my feet
In a pool
Of earthly desires
Every school day's flesh
An afternoon rush
An evening blush
A hearty laugh
A morning bed, that's messy-- and rough
How I wish someone had grabbed me
Pulled me
Unhooked me.
Awashed
To the gullies
I formed in struggling
For drowning.
In nothing - - but a bucket.
That is - - just you.
All along.

Your poem is pumping with originality & glints of recognition all along. I love how you rush thru the details almost like spilling a list of deeds the same way we skitter thru life tasting & trying & perplexing. The messy spontaneous pursuit of pleasure looks & sounds like how it really unfolds! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
