Poetry Th--ur, Wednesday

Since I'm off to the lake cabin this afternoon, I decided to play along with Poetry Thursday a day early. This week's theme: Whatever the Heck You Want. So: A poem by Richard Brautigan, taken from The Pill versus the Springhill Mine Disaster.

The Shenevertakesherwatchoff Poem

For Marcia

Because you always have a clock
strapped to your body, it's natural
that I should think of you as the
correct time:
with your long blonde hair at 8:03,
and your pulse-lightning breasts at
11:17, and your rose-meow smile at 5:30,
I know I'm right.

While looking for this poem, I came across another old favorite of mine. As far as poems go, it may be NSFW, but because I'm crazy like that, I'm posting it anyway.

I've Never Had It Done so Gently Before

For M

The sweet juices of your mouth
are like castles bathed in honey.
I've never had it done so gently before.
You have put a circle of castles
around my penis and you swirl them
like sunlight on the wings of birds.

NSFW, but really cool. Terrific imagery no matter the subject matter. Both of these are great.
