Poetry Tonight (Yay!)

Poetry tonight
Hopefully many reading
Their own verse
Or found treasures
What sweeter way
To while away a winter's night
Than gentle people
Reading gentle sonnets
Among their like

Tulle Princess

How now, what treachery is this
She's after the crown is she now
We'll see what crown she'll wear
When my well penned soldiers
Part her flowing hair
My kingdom
Princely estate of white
I shall not let you fall to some
Queen-seeming girl with
Naught but crowns and silken verse
To protect her from ...

Drinking Too Late

Days disappear in pointless thrashing
When eyes burn with fatigue
But minds refuse to quench their search
So I sleep but do not rest
Waking to dreams of disemboweling
With a cracked fingernail
Know better than to drink so late

Feeling sticky juices spread
So sweet my mouth explodes

Once removed

So strong for me

Seeds of Lust

Well let's embrace it friends
Plant our little seedlings
In rich dark soil of the night
Raise them with good hearts
Minds free of minor fears
We'll teach them truth
Show them love of knowledge
Try to give them wisdom
Raise them as good people
Who may ...
