DEATH

Going to sleep, I cross my hands on my chest.
They will place my hands like this.
It will look as though I am flying into myself.



Short poems and one long [ <3 ]Collapse )

Sarah Kennedy is a professor at the college I'm attending this fall. She is adorable and oh so ethereal. Besides, her poetry is hot. Have a quip of one of her poems, and a photograph (albeit, not a great one) for good measure.


Hannah hiding jars of molasses cookies
just for her during those dustbowl years
that my grandmother veered from lover
to shrink to a Pentecostal God. I can't imagine
what a mental hospital in Missouri
looked like in the thirties, what electro-shock

back then could do to a woman's brain,
to a family's good name, but I want to believe
that my mother blazed, for a while, with lust,

that she took pleasure in feeling his hands
between her thighs before she settled
for my father, church, and a half a dozen children.

Well, I for one am terribly sad about Kurt Vonnegut's death. That man was a gift. I think I'll dull the pain by offering some poet pictures. Feel free to jump in!

Anne Waldman, where have you been all my life? This woman is so adorable, with her little polka-dotted tights and her shiny hair. Scrumptious.

Post new sassy poet-finds! I lead the way, like a beacon across the stormy shoals of the ... internet or something.

[Poetry with background noise |that bubbly water steamifier]

How could I forget! I saw the most brilliantly, painfully gorgeous poet a few weeks ago: Terrance Hayes. This man's pictures do not do him justice. The publicity shots had been kicking around the office for weeks, but when he walked into the room with his tall self and his expensive sneakers and his buzzed mohawk, I thought damn.

And then I thought, Yum.

Audre Lorde sayeth unto you:

"YOUR SILENCE WILL NOT MAKE THIS COMMUNITY INTERESTING."

...

Sharon and Rita say:

"Come have a glass of wine with us! Poetry is for everybody! We have chocolate, too! Teehee, what are you guys wear-- what? We're out of wine? But this is the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS. What is WRONG with you people?! Do you KNOW who we ARE? Sheeeesh. Hey, let's go make out by the hors d'oeuvres table. Later, bitches."
