Professor Plum


For: She Who Weakened


i poured a poesy
from a jar in a field

full of two-petaled
flowers that were

not mechanical
boxes filled with

churning lubricant,
but she

had on a dead
man's shirt.

the sun was just
coming up, and

our shoes were
covered with dew.

I remember purple
plaid blankets

and her beaming.

    A smooth sentimental in the best Iaiah Berlin sense - makes one want to say ah and yet one knows these episodes. Cool (Report) Reply

    i'm about to tell everyone to grab their pitchforks and go after your writing hand.

    GET ON YOUR HORSE! in fact, here's some words for your next one: quick sand/toe jam/green bottles/waving

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
