Poem -

love you short time

love you short time

men..
men who look at you discerningly
as they would for bubbles
in wallpaper
yet their own roles don't
match up
they say,
I don't only want you for sex
then do,
little else in the itenary
but fuck
and complain
well..this isn't a body suit
I'm wearing, I'm afraid it's me
it's a real woman
not some bint
you poured over in a book
real life is kind of real
give it a suck

Love these last couple of lines...but I've discovered that life has an unerring ability to suck itself!!

Excellent piece...as always.

laughs out.. sometimes short verse packs a punch as you know..for instance and you will know it...that bit in Ceasor..where he says..You serve me a hot dish..cool...I love it ..you have to think..behind the line..I should pay more attention to detail..Im too much in a hurry ..like when I paint..I must finish it before the inspiration dies..and it does. ..thankyou kind sir..
