whats the point of this?
it's too, too personal.
like acid visuals that you can't relate to anyone.?

It's about Alchemy. Western magical tradition. Nothing personal about it. In fact, it's a little impersonal.

Point? to make you think.
Acid? do you mean Ergot?
Pureed or blended?

You should ask yourselve
how you have gotten this far
knowing so little.

Jeremi (if that is your real name) are you Horus8 gone undercover, deep into the darkest recesses of poemranker where his reputation will not preceed him. By the way, this neatly deconstructs the traditional haiku.

there is nothing undercover about h8, mr jones. his laundry's been on the clothesline in the front yard since he landed here at the ranker. recently, i believe he took some of his more, erm, intimate wear, down off the line (yes, it was dry ages ago, but not nearly aired out enough), but his scrawled-upon t-shirts and ripped jeans are still there.

p.s.--you won't find him on a star map. yet.

No, Horus8 is my real name, and Jeremi is just something i hold onto to pass the time? Darkest recesses of poemranker? that's funny... Do you mean Babbit's unexplored posterior cavity, or Settle's odiferous inner ear infection. By the way Nick, the only thing bathos about these haiku is that they're not. Come now, let's not insult one another's intelligence. I thought we were beyond our Sophmore years, and experimenting with real lab beakers and bunson burners now? I'd prefer if you'd not bore me with your epic similes and rhetorical figures in the name of tradition Nick. I am starting to get the impression that your consistant Jacobean age yammering was not a phase, but a pacifier. What? Am i not aloud a little light verse once in a while? You pian my sole Nick, you really do. CARPE DIEM DOGS!

sic this.
and, you have keyed this so succinctly as to leave it inaccessible, at least for a skimmer. it's hiddin in the ashes of idyll passed. it's rubbled under, and romulus and remus dug their way out at last.

i'll hold my breath for it. shit, i've been holding it for aeons.

wrap it up, h. this needs one more. 2 is not complete. give trigamestus the triad treatment, and then i will vote.

and it won't be a fucking 5.

Definitely needs a third. more alchemy poems please, but possibly get into the topic a little more.
[5] Crakyamuni @ | 28-Jan-03/11:08 AM | Reply
pardon me nerds.
I know nothing of sorcerers stones
and underwater arithmatic.

Hey, but chrono trigger kicked ass!
I hope to stuudy up so that I can comprehend the intent of these "non traditional" mental maturbations.
"one love"

Yeah, I played through Chrono Trigger yesterday. The issue, buddaboy, is that you make monumentally foolish statements on subjects you know nothing about. Don't read a poem and complain that the really obvious references are over your head. Just stick to the shallow end next time.
[7] razorgrin @ | 28-Jan-03/11:29 AM | Reply
Also, monk-man, did you misspell Buddha deliberately or was it due to the unfortunate positioning of your head in your sphincter at the time you first logged on?

Well, at least you still have the day job. Or is it done at night?

You know what would look cute? you sucking your own cock with two japanese chefs preparing miso soup with tofu on your back as a cable t.v show we would call it <He's a poet and he knows it? see him bend for his own pleasure, it would be a comedy tragedy with a hint of drama, but not much.>

It would look cute. But at least I would suck my own and not everyone elses. Do you swallow? Or is that extra?

You know very little of the flesh trade. you are forgiven, and since i am retired now (three years) i will just say this. If you are a well enough endowed and a good looking young man, people will pay an outrageous amount of money to suck you off (1,000.00$ for an all nighter), to put you in control of them, to bath in your youthful glow and strength. Not the other way around, twit. Unless of course the money's right, and that's a high figure, and a trust issue of course... The male hustler has been around for 1,000's and 1,000's of years, and there's nothing wrong with a young goodlooking orphan using the field as a way to educate, assimulate, and contemplate the layers of life. As long as you obey the twelve rules of hustling, all will be well. So no, the only cum i drink is my own, during certain rituals. thanks for your support and time listening. You think you are well informed, but unfortunately my friend... You're not.

what are the 12 rules of hustling? please?
[n/a] Jeremi B. Handrinos @ > <~> | 5-Feb-03/12:06 PM | Reply
1.) No drinking booze while working, it impairs judgement.
2.) No drugs also for the same reason above, and it's easier for you to be injured, robbed, raped, or murdered.
3.) Never admit to being gay or straight, just smile.
4.)Keep your personal life away from conversation and work.
It pointlessly interferes and is unecessary. the less the better.
5.)Dress and preen to kill, look stunning, healthy and professional.
6.) Set your fees high, never sandbag or lowball. By doing that you ruin the market and current prices, so aim high.
7.) Be careful, and safe. your merchandise is your sexuality and health. do not jeopardize that with stupidity. CONDOMS!, be selective with your clients. use good sober judgement.
8.) While working never go home with a hetero woman, or another hustler, because queens are talkers, and word will get out that you have no standards so your price will drop.
9.)Keep all activity away from your home life and other endevours.
no need to shit where you sleep.
10.) Deny all knowledge of hustler activity with a smile always... and a short innocent laugh with blush.
11.)Create a menu with different prices and routines. be imaginative. People will appreciate you more, and you'll maintain a richer and more genuine clientelle list.
12.)Guilt is your worst enemy. don't take it out on others or yourself. It WILL KILL YOU. therefore vacation alot, and mix up your daily schedule with alot of creative and endorphin releasing

disclosure: this list is neither fact or fiction, and spreading it around like it's funny will just make you look like a dolt. not me. for more hustler tennesse williams short "one arm". thank you for your time. good bye sweet moses

thank you sweetie. i was curious, because, well, because. there are those who will broadcast these--no doubt. but they seem to have served you well. and with a tweak of wording here and there, could do for any profession. perhaps none so lucrative as hustling, but then, not all of us have the assets for that line of work. as always, thanks for your openness and honesty.
