Uriah Hamilton


Kinda Sexy - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Execution-style romance,
Death flirtation tango,
Bonnie and Clyde, Sid and Nancy,
Role models of violent seduction,
Be my princess of destruction,
Roll with me Friday night
When the air is hot in the criminal city
On remorseless streets that never take pity
On the naïve and the inept,
On those not mindful of a thief’s precepts
To strike the first blow
And never fall asleep with your eyes shut.

You’re kinda sexy dressed in black,
You could wrap your nylons around someone’s neck.
Keep your intentions mysteriously cloaked
So the bastards never know what’s coming next.
I like you all cut-throat and cool
Creating new ways to be callous and cruel.
I expect, one day, you will give me the gun or the knife
And it will be such a perfect way
To call it a life!

    I like the noirish feel to this Uriah. The narrative flows well and the rhyme structure makes great play with the words. (Report)Reply

    The Tango of Death! I really liked this one. Plenty of imagery, a bit of menace - ok, more than a bit - and, yes, it made me laugh as well. Great job! - Will (Report)Reply

    though this was ace bar the cool/fool rhyme which reminded me of grandmasterflash. Not intrinsically a bad thing but in this case. Still, the rest is excellent (Report)Reply
