I've actually been looking at trying out some prose-poetry lately so was really interested to see you post this. Obviously the imagery ...


Oh peek! People! Please
Show me where you live
Read your novel to me
Dance with me
Your palms are open
Your hands are like ice
I'm whiskey
Written on a scooter in Pai, Thailand.
We are not birds
Despite your claim
To a swan
Despite the keen architecture of you

You are oceans
And have nothing do with the sky
There is no need for a southern passage
For the adventure of winter

You could grace the water
All of your life
And it would thank you
You are Autumn, beautiful
as falling.  And me, I never really loved
any of the seasons; it's just that winter
and i agree on a lot of things.

I told you I am a bright, cold day
but you knew:
the majesty of a window
could never trick you.

So I am back
for the poetry of your winter clothes;
the music of your feet in the porch;
the thickness of make-up against you.

I am coal-fire in love with you:
I will not last the night.
Written on a bunk in Siem Reap and by a pool in Chiang Mai.
You know that
I prefer it to the way you kiss;

The way you draw the vowels
Out with chocolate enthusiasm.

Even when you have to cry,
You say it

Like a child
Rolling their favourite toy toward me.

They gave him some shit name
Just like  'ten fingered teddy boy',

But even his dad
Had known the music in him,so he got a guitar
and an amp and a band
And a family

And now
if you want to know about rivers
He'll put something down for you
On vinyl.

But hey, hey!

Did you ever see him on the continent?
He had those kids,

And they bottled daddy's time away
Because he did.

Listen, This is a man who lights forest fires
And steps out on bar fights
And maybe to some he's a flat case
And a black record

But, brother,
That's our father:
There ain't much he can't say
These days

He's got credit for rhythm
And being there in the beginning
So this is the last journal I'll put up for now. It's a handful of quotes that I keep in my poetry folder and a few poems I missed the first time around.

Quotes… - Jaime Gil De Bieda… - Miranda July… - Galileo Galilei
fuckyeahliteraryquotes.tumblr.… - Ian McEwan… - F. Scott Fitzgerald… - Jeffrey Eugenides… - Margaret Atwood… - Unknown… - J. Robert Oppenheimer

Poems… - Vladimir Mayakovsy… - Dean Young… - Ezra Pound… - Hafiz (really, really enjoyed this and just found out it was written over 700 years ago and he's basically part of Iranian history. What .… Phillip Kaye - from 'Repetition'
