Georgia Blue - Poem by John Libertus

Ah, sweet, spicy,
Georgia Blue,
come to Dracula
for the ultimate hickey;
ah, an older, undead
he's sure to be
just an animal about it,
and grateful;
(wear the cape, Count,
wear the cape)

'One hates to disappoint,
my dear,
the dentures require
expert care;
friends with rock candy
are a fate worse
than garlic;
you should wait
for a man nearer
your age?

(First - oh, my God,
let me die! - a lawyer -
and now,
- even if she's
built like -)

my dear;
my only friend's
an electric blanket -'

She doesn't want to be
a pissed-off banshee
about it -
(he really seems to be
a decent person -)
but isn't he
being a little too
turning down
a sexy lady
(like herself)
to drag him out of
that old coffin
and into something wider?
(he can keep the blanket)

('My dear Georgia,
I'm just a poor man,
living in the shadows
of the ruins;
I hope you know I mean
the love I never seem to bring,
but I don't want you
to have to
come to be
like me,
and die inside, before you die)

(but dear, sweet Georgia Blue, she sees nothing but blue skies)

    A torment to read, echoing my own experience. Maybe Bishop Berkely got it wrong, and we can know each other's pain? (Report) Reply
