On Being “Grounded” In Love: Romantic IMprov Poem

November 23, 2010

A woman, for whom I’d written the previous poem, read it to her daughter over the phone, almost as it was created. Her daughter laughed. The woman said: “She keeps me grounded”. This was my IMprov response:

She keeps you grounded?
in what?
The muck
and the mire?
The dirt that’s the death
of romance’s fire?

The young think they know
what it means to feel passion’s glow.
But they don’t.
It’s only youthful lust.
As age comes, so arrives patience
and trust.

And the romance that fuels
our aged desire
is the very thing which pulls
us out of the mire
and sends our passionate flames
soaring ever higher.

So when we fall, exhausted,
in each other’s arms again,
we’ll arise, phoenix-like,
from where youth has never been.


For A Reader: Romantic Email Sonnet

October 30, 2010

Though she was fair of face,/
with a figure and body to match,/
she complained how oft it was the case/
that men use lust to bait and catch.

I shant trash her then/
with ordinary mail crudeness./
I’ll instead pick up my pen,/
and woo her with non-lewdness!

Instead of seducing her with a blunt tool,/
I’ll write words creative and sharp./
For it is only a oafish fool/
who woos with a hammer instead of a harp.

Because, as we’ve all been forewarned,
the pen is mightier than the sword!

Old Chocolate Cake: a Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

July 13, 2009

I made a mistake/
of eating old/
chocolate cake:/
Checked 4 mold./
It sat/
in back/
of black/
many days./
The error of my ways?/
I knew b4/
I’d lust 4 more.
