Russian absinthe (Free verse) by AlexandraLeaving
What you told me What you said How you broke it apart In the fields of azure suns and leaves red How you groaned As I bled And how I thought With this gift I give With me forever he'll live And how it ached between my legs for days But desire this wolf within me Drove me back to your arms When I looked at my tight young skin Next to yours I thought Komarovsky I am yours

Up the ladder: Flying things
Down the ladder: November 1963

I quite like this and I don't know why.

Ranger you like everything, a vote from you is like a wet fart in a pair of somebody elses trousers in a different country.

It's true. I even like that comment. I was born with a terrible disability that meant I couldn't dislike anything, and have had to go through life wearing a faintly puzzled smile. It's a bit like being Borat, only without the sock visibility.

Did you know that in 2041 we're all going to be wiped out by an enormous asteroid unless NASA can get Bruce Willis out of retirement to open up an Armageddon-style can of whupass on the situation? No more poemranker, no more cancelled flights from Heathrow, no more David Gower. What will the place be like then?

I understood that NASA were going to grow Dovina beyond her already epic proportions and use her as some kind of giant sponge to absorb the impact.

Not to worry. Even an inanimate asteroid will divert its collision course upon the possibility of smearing its pristine surface with the body fluids of Stephen Robins.

I like this also--it has a nice rhythm to it.

A Doctor Zhivago reference? Ivan Komarovsky? But I'm thinking that since you are from New York, it might be Mirra? But you said "he" earlier. I dunno now.

I'm just being silly - it must be Zhivago.

Maybe it's just some random guy.

Anyway - I like the poem

Post more things please.
