    I was trying for minimalist approach to poetry. I'll try again someday. It's just, you know, hard.

    This is my minimalist poem:

    "I am sitting at my desk.
    I am sitting at my desk.
    I am sitting at my desk.
    I am sitting at my desk.
    I am sitting.
    I am sitting.
    At my desk.
    At my desk.
    Sitting at my.
    Sitting at my.
    Sitting at my.
    Sitting at my.
    Desk.
    Desk.
    Desk.
    Desk.
    I am sitting at my desk.
    I am sitting at my desk." (repeat 100 times)

    The vibrant orange of my sweet potato,
    Fleshy and ripe upon the white plate;
    Mountains of complex carbs.


    I am an imagist now.

    oh let me try!

    the square that illuminates the night
    filled with poetry and broken lines
    makes my eyes hurt by nine
    your dark spot an abyss
    that boggles my mind
    a flash of white before the type
    the sky blues that the black binds

    i really hate that smiley.
    i wish it would die.

    On top of spaghetti,
    All covered with cheese,
    I lost my poor meatball,
    When somebody sneezed.

    questions (a poem)

    Why am I so tired?
    When I wanted to sleep?
    Maybe I slept?
    Maybe the cat woke me early?
    Why was she playing in my room?
    Why did she scratch the door?
    Where is my twix?
    Did Kim nick it?

    This is a haiku!
    But it is not for you, so
    please avert your eyes

    I think of you often,
    My lover, my friend, my aide.
    I wish you were here
    To melt in my arms
    To warm my heart
    To fill the void.

    Your frame, so slender.
    Your skin, so smooth.
    The colour of dark coffee.

    From afar you seem so soft,
    As easygoing as a mewing kitten.
    But inside you are hardened like the wolf.

    But hark! What is this! An imposter upon your visage!
    A traitor trying to steal me from your gaze.
    He matches you, like for like, a mirror image of your love.
    O, what am I to do?

    But fear not, my love,
    'tis just your twin,
    Whom I love and whom loves me
    Equally, happily.

    I think of you often,
    My lover, my friend, my aide.
    My Twix.

    Icon15 Irritable Vowel Syndrome (one from my back catalogue)

    "Am I in love with you, my love?"
    I have to ask this question
    Are these burnings from my heart
    Or have I just got indigestion?

    When e'er you're close to me, my love
    I wonder more than any
    Do I need your love eternal
    Or do I just need a Rennie?

    Each time our glances meet, my love
    We bridge the greatest chasm
    It's a shame that when I try to speak
    My colon starts to spasm.

    But I am in love with you, my love!
    It's fact! There's no contestin'!
    My whole soul's in full agreement
    With my bowels and large intestin.

    Long and Hot
    by ~Sixthcrusifix/SageBrushFire

    Take me if you want me
    I want you to need me
    Give me your
    money.

    Sliding past your lips;
    It's a fix
    You can't resist this
    So cheap
    So fast.

    Grab my bread
    Stroke the pump
    Up and down
    like a crazy ride
    Red and yellow roller costar
    making everything taste
    so much better.

    We can relish
    all these moments
    while people watch
    with watering tongues.

    In the open day
    Where the children play
    Come take a ride
    With me inside
    Succulent, long and tender
    Oh the things you can do
    at a hot dog vendor.

    ... I honestly can't tell if that's serious or not.

    Here's my new piece of work!


    HOOCH IS CRAZY


    You sir, are in a league of your own,
    I will never leave you alone.
    Remember when you were an astronaut??
    Nothing rhymes with astronaut.
    That's how awesome it is.

    I loved you in That Thing You Do!
    Even better in Toy Story 2
    We all knew Buzz never flew.
    You are an awesome cowboy.

    Joe Friday! Joe Friday!
    Are you going my way?
    Remember when you were that gay
    Who died of the awful AIDS?

    What's the deal with Meg Ryan?
    You make films with her but I don't buy 'em.
    Nor have I seen Saving Private Ryan.
    I'm am a brilliant poet.

    So here's to you, Forrest Gump
    I remember when you had to jump
    Into that volcano, and dump
    That lady who you worked with in the toy company because it turns out you were only 12 and she was basically committing paedophilia and come to think of it Big was kinda fucked up in that way, you know?

    So that's my poem for Mr Hanks.
    For whom we all should give some thanks.
    Without him life would be dark and dank.
    I love you, Thomas Jeffery Hanks.

    I'd like to think it's funny enough but well-written enough to be either.

    His middle name is Jeffery? That was beautiful (I especially liked the Toy Story references).

    K here's an old one. I was listening to Mr. Zebra and eating contraband dark chocolate while writing this.

    Theobromine


    Just a simple chocolate bar
    but there's a secret here I feel
    Underneath the waxy finish
    it's a sexual ordeal.

    In a cone of fervent satin
    on the waves of sugar's crown
    with a drizzle it can
    knock the gravitas
    right off your face.

    No spermicide in here
    but fair maiden's needn't care,
    you can fill your face will lust
    and watch your figure turn to bust.

    Don't let them fool you
    with their flaccid funnel cakes
    cool tempered candy canes
    and lustless red rosette remains

    Leave you crying at the mirror
    Buttery filth all on your hands
    but don't shed another tear
    Girls you never need to fear,
    Mr. Cocoa will always be
    your man.

    I hate the way you talk to me
    And the way you cut your hair
    I hate the way you drive my car
    I hate it when you stare

    I hate your big dumb combat boots
    And the way you read my mind
    I hate you so much that it makes me sick
    It even makes me ryhme

    I hate the way you're always right
    I hate it when you lie
    I hate it when you make me laugh
    Even worse when you make me cry

    I hate the way you're not around
    And the fact that you didn't call
    But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you
    Not even close
    Not even a little bit

    Not even at all
