perfect grass poem

mother said there is a garden inside me  

and not father not no-one can kick me so hard  

that the grass will bruise and I will drink enough  

from fractured men that the fountain behind my   

midnight will keep flowing out keep everything wet  

warm sacred and if I ever let you cut me open  

the orchids will smell of a beautiful confusion 

◄ sexual apocalypse at the gym poem

the bird and the puddle ►

uniquely meaningful Stu. A glorious twister of thoughts like a Dahli painting.

You have added another dimension to your work with this one Stu. It has for me almost a lyrical quality to it.
Love it
