Pulse Points

Words on the page
are like lips on skin.
I bare my throat.
You bare your fangs.

I saw this movie called Fangs Of New York. It was about this psycho vampire dental hygienist, played by Cameron Diaz. Daniel Day-Lewis plays Bill, the dentist, and Leonardo DiCaprio plays the hunchback janitor.

That's quite a verbal picture you've created, MZ! I love it! Hope you have a great evening!

That's what I call a biting critique.

Reminds me of that song by Meatloaf...

"Would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?"

"Yes!"

hate that when they show their fangs

This is actually rather a wickedly smart observation. Fangs a lot. *ducks and runs*

MZ,
Somewhat reminds one of the presence of Dracula about to strike!

Really cool. Words are like daggers, or claws- Perhaps the moral is not to bare the throat- but that's the problem isn't it- society, or perhaps a chosen segment of such- teach it's best to not trust, best to not bare one's soul- instead play it safe and never share. Really awesome piece in 4 small lines.:)

Oh, I do so love your poems. Another great one: succinct and compelling.

Point well made. There are so many apt metaphor for the act of writing down a page -- mine is that of descending a well or abyss, the deeper into the writing I go, the darker it gets. Always with a treasure-room and Grendel's mammy at the bottom. Short and blood-sweet. - Brendan
