A Little Bit of Poetry

October 28, 2010

Dear Readers,

It has occurred to me that I hardly put my poetry up for you all to read. So, for you poetry lovers, here is a poem from an old book of mine.

Without The Use of Foul Language

I closed the book on us without desire of reading the sequel

You were my equal

of a treacherous poison intertwined with the finest tobacco

You were the duplicate of an admired painting sold on Ebay and bought for ten dollars

Your beauty was fragmented by your imitation of the most textured paint

I threw away the soul of you this morning

Vacuuming even the dust bunnies our arguments left behind

Our photographs were eaten by the silverfish that slithered out of the cracks of my window pane

I then killed them and buried them,

because they wrought the last memory of you
