OOOO. My teeth are ringing. This poem is part of the cure.
Sometimes I really need those dark words.. the bitter, salt and sour not just the sweet..
The dark elements are beautiful as well as haunting..! Loved it!xoxo
I am always so impressed with your economy with words. There is truth and darkness here, mostly truth. Loved.
Terrific -- as always, MZ!!
Fan-frickin'-tastic. Just an awesome, awesome piece.
Your poems always absolutely nail it! Every single time.
Ah, clever. Sharp. Hope so. K.
Mmmmm this tastes just right! Love it Mama Zen! I think we all crave the dark chocolate of poetry...something that takes us deeper into life's hurts that we all can relate to.
MZ, Agreed.Pussyfooting is not poetry. Or at least in my book, good poetry.P.S. Wish I could do more of that.
Yes indeed! I was reminded of this aphorism (sadly, have forgotten the author): 'We feed you bitter pills in sugar coating. The pills are harmless; the poison is in the sugar.'
You always floor me with your poems!
This is definitely not milk chocolate but instead, dark chocolate.Like at least 70% cacao.
'Twas ole Paracelsus who sd. that the cure most work upon the poison like a fire. Words that either kill or cauterize. Amen.
Impractically pure. Awesome.
Oh, quit showing off, Zen! Some people use more than nine words to make a kickass poem. Not you, nooOOooo. You're good, woman. Let me just slink off and contemplate my newfound baldness.
Yep, that's what they're for--and no one tells it truer than you do here--the rhyme, well--it just kicks ass.
Love it. As succinct as it is powerful.
WOW I whistled, hey MZ when you get it, would you share?
Such a perfect recipe for poetry - I concur with your request.
Goodness...you have such a punch-y way of bringing truths...unique and fresh, MZ...always!
I find myself a little bruised after reading too much Kick Ass poetry and feel a need for respite into something a bit softer on occasion.Good poem !
Very effective poem. I particularly like the second stanza and the line breaks.
