Professor Plum


For: She Who Weakened - Poem by Professor Plum

i poured a poesy
from a jar in a field

full of two-petaled
flowers that were

not mechanical
boxes filled with

churning lubricant,
but she

had on a dead
man's shirt.

the sun was just
coming up, and

our shoes were
covered with dew.

I remember purple
plaid blankets

and her beaming.

    A smooth sentimental in the best Iaiah Berlin sense - makes one want to say ah and yet one knows these episodes. Cool (Report) Reply

    i just read this just now
    and i have to say something positive, is that ok?

    first off that opening line is something i want to put in a jar.
    and
    she had on a dead mans shirt

    i'm about to tell everyone to grab their pitchforks and go after your writing hand.

    GET ON YOUR HORSE! in fact, here's some words for your next one: quick sand/toe jam/green bottles/waving

    Highly imaginative piece of poetry. The last sentence l remember purple blankets and her beaming is very romantic and I love it so much. Lovely poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
