I spent hours drawing you;
I'm no artist, but the sketch is picture
For though we are parallel lines,
Parallel lines never meet.
My slumbers convince me;
As an example,
Here's last night's dream:-
Me, returning to my room,
You, there, cheekily expectant.
Me, stepping forward, unthinking,
A double-take - I collect myself
And turn back to the door, and
If the Cosmos is watching
(Which it surely is),
Two lopsided smiles
Four feverish hands
Eight entwined limbs.
Parallel lines waiver,
Given the chance.
Betwixt the Right and the Leftï»¿âWhat are you rebelling against?â
Well, what have you got?
(Systems of marauding finance
Which cramp the free resolve of my contemporaries).
If you had had the courage, as a young man
Indulging in the right books
Or visiting the right settings
Or conversing with the beautiful-
You might have turned out like me
Fighting, falling, against the stuffed shirts of
Capitalism â" unresolvable issues steaming from
Your ears; the putrid gasses of money traps and
The faltered, failing theorems of Smith, or Nash, and
Groaning in assent with the philosophy of zealous Germans-
If you had had half the heart, or mind, that I have,
You may have bested my ideals.
As it stands, your existence is hedge-trimmed with
The rust of trains journeying to the churning heart
Of the city, tabloid-sized broadsheets, a garage
To park in, an unlovely wife to pick apart your veins
In sleeping parentheses;
Port and cigars
Middle-class, Middle-England, Middle
Gigglewiresï»¿Sprinkle me with your
Lava lamp giggle
Softening, groping to the peak, and
If, at any junction, you find control,
Let me fall with the oily wax,
Cradle me into the cushioned base.
I see you there, glowing from within,
Heated with the silly bulb.
You weren't there when I was younger-
If you had been, I might have avoided
All that fuss I endured;
Skipped the freezing winters, and
Jumped straight into laval summers.
It's futile to fabricate a world
Where my blood is not thinned
With the crackle of your dialect.
Keep in Touch!
^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
