Description:


It is about poetry. It is a piece in the vein of Metaphor Whore.


SRO for the Poetry Show



It was SRO
for the poetry show
that featured
a bawdy bard
of a broad.
Her advertised and
anticipated reaction
was to raise
a dead desire:
resurrecting the life
of love with
one part revival
and another
strip tease.

She preferred verse
that was in their faces
which barred no holds
or exotic configurations.

As she recited her poems
the words became
luscious, decadent,
and delicate lap dancers.
The exhibitionist
vulgar vocabulary
slowly slipped off
its pretentious attire,
extending the titillation
and jiggling in the raw.

The audience smiled,
delighted and tightened
with excitement
at the way
the naughty words
shimmied, swayed,
teased and played.
The rowdy crowd
rewarded each poem
with applause,
hoots and shouts.

As they always do,
this night ended too soon.
The listeners left.
Many arrived home
and found a pen
in an attempt
to satisfy themselves.

Still others embraced
their spouses,
whispering about poetry
and love.

  you reminded of something I just read last night -

"This is a poetry we are seeking, corroded, as if by acid, by the labours of man's hand, pervaded by sweat and smoke, reeking of urine and of lilies soiled by diverse professions in and outside the law.
A poetry a impure as a suit or a body, a poetry stained by food and shame, a poetry with wrinkles, observations, dreams .....hatred, beasts, blows, idylls, manifestos, denials, doubts .... the poetic product will be stamped with the .... scars of teeth and ice slightly consumed by sweat and war...." -Pablo Neruda -

it goes on much longer, but its gorgeous about poetry from your gut. I love it, and it seems to be the kind of poetry your friend in this poem reads, the only kind worth listening to if you ask me (but what to I know?)

the only thing I would suggest is you have made it like an erotic dance - but maybe you have held yourself back a little? why not really dance with it, it seems to still be held in check emotionally - I can't make suggestions how, but I think if you wanted to you could really open it up and make it much more powerful.

  Ok, I do this because I simply love your work. THIS WAS SO DIRTY! LMAO, just kidding, I loved it. Your portrayed poetry in a way I never thought of it before. When you write, you really are truly nked, and they are seeing the inside from the outside, and the words to bring out some desire in you because you get to see the whole deep person, and you see them in a way of new ligh. Also, there are more than one ay to celebrate poetry, and that was in the last stanza with the others embracing the spouses, and the play on words is so fun, and I have to say only a true poet could embrace it, and turn it inside out as you just did. Sorry for the next dirty lines, but you are naked, and you are beautiful. Take care.
Peace and much love,
Aya

  Chrystine you are a wonder!
This poem s so witty and clever ..I just love
the picture it paints….and it is so true
words do seduce

As she recited her poems
the words became
luscious, decadent,
and delicate lap dancers.
The exhibitionist
vulgar vocabulary
slowly slipped off
its pretentious attire,
extending the titillation
and jiggling in the raw.

and this last part is so funny and naughty
it put a smile on my face that won't go away
it is just so clever I wish I had written it

Many arrived home
and found a pen
in an attempt
to satisfy themselves.

Still others embraced
their spouses,
whispering about poetry
and love.

  Excellent plus for this one Chrystine!

You set the story up well in the first couple of lines, jiggle the reders' emotions with the titillating performance, then i simply loved the way you ended it.

My only pick was maybe a typo "bared no holds" did you mean "barred no holds?"

Otherwise I thought it was perfect.

Well done indeed, a fabulous idea, and well presented

be happy

  this is great Chrystine! i remember Metaphor
Whore and really enjoyed that one too.

i love the bawdiness here. you make the words
and the poem come alive. "delicate lap dancers" is great. you show here how poetry can inspire, how
the words can find their way into our heart and soul.

great work!

peace,
~Cat

  I thought everyone knew that SRO is standing room only but maybe it's just us older folks! This was a nice little venture into what a slam is like. I've never been to one but I really should sometime. I did go to a poetry reading at my university which was pretty good so I imagine slams are even more exciting. I like the way your words undressed themselves. nice write.
