She's not a nice girl.
Her kiss takes your breath,
and while you're weak,
she'll take the rest.

She'll have your child,
but bear it dead--
then raise it up
(but just the head.)

Kiss me

  1. The italicized "me" added to this perfect piece.

    This early in the morning and you produce THIS? Yikes! I've got to put on some foundation (which I don't have) to color my (now) green face... ;)

  2. The ease with which you've worked in
    hexatonic goatameter is laudable. I've always found the double inverse Ventetian sonnet a little too punctilious, but you've won me over! I applaud yourvsharp observations about universal health care in alternate universes and your adept mingling of iconic images from religion and string theory. Sheer perfection, Shay!

  3. I've met that girl--I think my son married her once. Whilst I am still laughing from Lolamouse's comment, I do also still feel the sinister, the sense of evil that some people carry behind a front of beauty and smiles. Short, not sweet, but smart.

  4. ahahah love the rhythm! You'll get all the kisses, definitely. :)

    Here's mine:



  5. This is the most flawless execution of goatameter it has ever been my privilege to read.

    I adore this and give it 5 kisses!

  6. deliciously dark, just the way I like it.

  7. Oh my goodness, between your poem and lolamouse's comment, I am completely intimidated! Brilliant!

  8. Wow! Not nice at all! Snappy, sharp little piece here.

  9. Rich and inviting details leading us into the dark-and then surprise-so fun to read!

  10. Yikes, what a scary broad!

    Hope Bosco is doing better this week.

  12. Oh, Jim, there are bad girls!! (Lolamouse is on fire, I can't compete).

    Let's hope this was a fib, as the other girl sounds too sinister to even consider in the first place!

  13. Beware the kiss
    From a sultry Miss
    And if you're young
    She'll steal your tongue!!!

  14. Lolamouse is of course correct, though what Catblossom thinks of a mouse in her lair, I can only wince.

    As at this girl. Wince. ~


Spirit, what do you wish to tell us?
