    :!: POM - flaggwalkstheline!

    Congratulations, flaggwalkstheline! I have deemed you Poet of the Month!!!
    I have posted 3 poems that I enjoyed for a number of reasons! If anyone else would care to post any of flagg's poems that they wish to discuss, feel free!

    Please enjoy the poems I posted...

    POEM #1

    Somewhere
    Grey and silent as a monastery floor
    A chalkmark has been scraped
    Drawn into
    My shape
    I know this while clenching my hands in empty coat pockets
    I watch headlights wink as if making a private mechanical jest in darkness
    Somewhere up the road

    everything I ever wanted
    Flies by with blazing eyes
    Heatseeking-missile kisses meant for someone else

    A white outline is sketched on the sidewalk near a building
    Cold Island in a colder sea
    Thatís me
    And thatís the machine

    The scraping keeps me awake


    POEM #2

    The blue eyed schemer
    Bit the ear of the green eyed dreamer
    You and I
    Though we walk smugly under burnt umbrellas
    Will never hold out the flood
    And its time spanning tidal burp
    So rather than watch the water grow into the clouds
    We should turn our backs on the typhoon
    The inevitable is as boring as a blank morning paper
    We should climb into the mountain's dulled teeth
    Fling our metal trophies and withered wreaths
    Down just to hear the sudden sullen clank
    Turn your back on the avalanche
    And climb with me
    Climb like spiders in love
    You and I whose feet have never felt
    The pure ancient rocks beneath the labyrinth
    Have heard the bull stomping stomping
    Climb and we will never be inevitable
    Pick plums until out lips are purple
    Chew them to the very core
    The center of amnesiac sweetness
    Sunlight tempts eyelids to open and become brief sunflowers
    Sticky hands fused together with sap from a dying tree
    You and me
    Should dream like reptiles on cold stone
    Shedding yesterday's skin

    POEM #3

    My hands
    Only know how to to do simple things
    And I think its a shame the way
    My fingertips like to touch everything they come near like little bloodhounds
    Yet still can't play the piano
    There's a fine line between stupid and clever.

    You can't really dust for vomit.

    Love the second one BTW. Flagg has a lot to choose from. One could read his thread for quite some time. Very prolific.

    I haven't seen this person in awhile either. The poems listed are all very good but I like #3 the best. Its a quick poetic thought.
