Treasure Island

jerry hughes

(January 4,1931 / a citizen of the world)


They called her Bussie, dumpie with acne
so nobody kissed her.
A matinee groupie who seldom saw a film.
The only tenderness she knew was
when she gave 'her boys' fellatio.

As the lights went down, so did Bussie.
Oh, so gently,
to callous thrusting intermixed
with muffled laughter.
When the film ended Bussie would arrange
herself and smile sweetly at her boys.
But nobody kissed her.

    With a minimum of words, you have produced a detailed and sensitive portrait of Bussie with her acne and her need to be loved. Oh the agony of feminine plainness. I've no doubt the 'callous youths' didn't give her feelings a second thought. This is incredibly sad - and beautifully written. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
