blue Boy

here's a real shocker. i'm serious. i have actual work to do right now. i think the devil could use some muffs because hell must have frozen over.

in the spirit of nobody being here on fridays anyway, here is some bad faux photoshopping and (gasp!) poetry.


i imagine you in a car crash,
broken glass mimics the constellations
of freckles on your eyelids.

my body closes in on itself, spastic,
it collapses—
the space around me inflamed and pixelized.
i smell salt water; tears, cold sweat.

your curled body, a fiddlehead,
limp as hydrus, burnt out, twisted,
cool to touch,
faded away.

my tongue is thick
a mouthful of raw eggwhite.
matter, anti-matter,
i spit another and
another, till it’s just the taste.

my chest fills with stars, my core
gravity so strong not even light
can escape.

i feel i may disappear from view.
everything stops.

I can't stop thinking about you and your breasts.

Boy looks both good AND pimpin in blue.

Also...who wears furry vaginas on their ears? That just seems like a Cirque du Soleil stunt gone horribly wrong.

Blogger MonkeyGurrrrrl said...

I am speechless (!!!) at those muffs. But Boy *does* look good in blue. Little Boy Blue. :) Hmmmm...

Blogger Danny said...

I'm swooning.

Can a guy swoon?

I don't know, but I am.

Blogger Nick said...

The thought of furry vagina earmuffs terrifies me to no end.

Blogger jiggs said...

Per usual, I don't have the time/energy for a close reading of this right now. Also, vagina earmuffs would be rad.

Blogger Knitty Kitty said...

that is just fantastic..
For a play I ran around in a massive vag costume, i would get those just to remember the good ol'days.

Lou Reed does not know what to say. Lou Reed needs someone to write songs for him. and play them. Lou Reed is Willing to pay with his body.

Lou Reed bleeds dusty air.

brooke: that's step one in my plan.

sassy: you want them. shall we send a pair to someone?

monkeygurrl: i bet we know someone who would wear them to express her powerful femininity.

danny: you're swooning over boy?

nick: you love them. wear them to work and see what the seniors say then.

jiggs: i knew you would like that.

knitty: you dressed up like a peep? what play might that be, dear?

Blogger Zombie Lou said...

I wonder if he's related to Mystique.

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

Oh my.

I say "oh my." to the following:

1. All the sensations this poem evoked in me
2. The earmuffs
3. Your use of the word "fiddlehead"

Brava, I say to you!
