Fools get the best discounts at the soul sales

I am evaporating
tears are dried dust
Seen the day before it spoke even though it knocked loudly
Dance with me
I want to be my own lover
androgyny is beautiful for sipping solitude

Take down my pants
I was not man or woman when I wrote this
A precipice is shaking the identity litter of letters

I am a man for you if you need a cock
I am a woman if a cunt is tastier

Worth in the morning will have the same breath
kiss
me
Kill me if you know how to find where I hide my heart

Look for the undersmashing where brittle lips collect the swept past
Introspective collection of memories sun dried on morning toast
I am nothing when I look to be something in the eyes of fools

Long lean loving was the little hint left last time we conceived thoughts
Satire is ironic when the loser writes it before they have lost
Hide in the black mood
find a little child eating far too much chocolate

Fools get the best discounts at the soul sales by 


inspiration can come from the strangest collection of feelings and readings…

Feelings and words fall on to the page
Sometimes they bite back
Sometimes they tug on our sleeve
Sometimes they have a cheeky grin
They stay once a page has found them
Words are faithful to us even in the dark

    Fantastic piece. Something for everyone here (and I’m not talking about the male/female plumbing).

  • Hi Rikki
    I was in you know one of those moods….just needed to get things out especially that writing is writing whether it is from a man or a woman….it is the words and yes perhaps the flavoring may be a little different but that is all…:O))

    OMG… amazing ink from 1st to last word you have an incredible skill with words such deep thoughts placed so casually but heavy to my heart …a weariness of defeat has sprinkled itself gently over you darling…shake it with a gust of wind and place in a barrel with mixed assorted chocolate, push the lid down tightly and place a do not open sign …xxxxxxxxxxx

  • Indeed this was an eclectic response to a few poetical pieces I read prior.
    One concerning the questions should the writers gender be a consideration in the words conveyed…
    And another about those that will not let go of our past mistakes…we have hard enough time without ‘others ’ putting their agenda’s in as well me thinks!
    Thank you darling for your hugs and supportive words.
    You have made this even more meaningful by your response here..:))x

    I am saying what I said to Simply Red(Christine) as it really is the best way to explain these words.
    The train is moving slowly…but moving forward not backward…xxx

    WOW omg!!! this is so amazing, I want to be more articulate but frankly I am sitting here with my mouth open and my eyes open going WOW, also I am focused on the timing of “take down my pants”, these parts do not make up the identity of the person or human beings, for we are contained not only within the body, but in the body of consciousness itself.

  • Well to WOW you is a really huge compliment to me…as I see you as such a intellectual emotional historical poet….a mouthful hey!
    Who we are is inside the thinking soul not the sexing soul me thinks..xxxx
