       My love affair with the underground punk community in my town. This isn't really up to my standards, but I hadn't posted in awhile and I wanted to express this love....

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dotsThe Punk Jivedots

    the dark sweat in the thrum
    the nasty grass that crept up clothing
    the groping hands,
    the crunch of body against body.

    they weren't the sons of a revolution.
    they aren't the angry, mistreated youth.

    They are the passion, the moody peace,
    the skill of screams of truth,
    the joy of lies.

    of intoxicants and smoke and cherubs fly
    the babies only mother wants to protect.

    the deep riff of internal madness
    that eats and eats

    gorges itself on the living young
    the beauty of misconstrued reality.

    Oh how they will stare
    they have every right to stare
    the philosophy of beauty
    in a crunch of bone as bodies collide
    the thrum of bass and drum,
    the scream of seams.

    They will dance the Punk Jive.

    They will dance the Punk Jive,
    of love under basement roofs
    of love under repression, depression.
    of love under lies, under bodies of purple.

    They will dance the Punk Jive,
    feel the rush, the rush,
    the sweet bite of blood on tongue
    smash the idealism of a perfection.

    We will dance the Punk Jive.

      The fact that I am 58 years old and quite removed from this scene makes it truluy impossible for me to actually have experienced what you write about. That being said, I can hinestly say that you have succeeded in giving me a glimpse into this alternate culture without making me want to be judgemental. I would have to say that constitutes a well written and readily recieved piece of poetry. Thanks for the little peek.

    That line says to me: "Hello, my name is God. How do you do?"
