oh, i am not a poet;
like the ink scratches
of plath, i am
a diamond-dreamer
straw-stitched
specter boy: decay,
dispose, & disappoint
because this is the way
that writers wane -

(this hangman head is no
survivor story, & gods
do not burn out
in supernovas)
tell them all you're doing better until you start to believe it, too

Naw man, I just need to let these words soak in. I need to read it slow and eat it up before I can process it. I wanna take it bite by bite.

Then crawl ... until you come to an oasis.  I want you to.  And I'm sure Sylvia would want you to.  By-the-by, your poems are very powerful.

Straw-stiched.

AAHHHH. :la:

Hmmmph, anyways, this is appealing. I like the close-ness (juxtaposition?) of scratches and diamonds. :) Kind of ironic, and creates some vivid imagery for me.

By the way, I was freaking about you using "straw-stiched" 'cause I used that in one of my poems. :la: I feel a mutual appreciation of the word...:meow:
