Suicide Dolls

Suicide Dolls

Tiss a maddening state of affairs
Why my lovers don’t gas themselves to death
Have they not the decency to assist my endeavors?
Is my future to be written in stone of no importance to them?
The public would breath and eat the words
Of all my little suicide dolls
If only, if only they would find the ovens
Yeast you have failed me in these dire moments
Let me rise above it all
With poetic verse
Sing to all my tragedies
My death and re-birth
In the gas chambers of poetic verse

    Arthur, now that I have read all about Ted Hughes and his tragic family, I can understand what lies behind this expressive poem. #7 // paul

    You certainly have a thing for controversial love affairs with historical impact as source of inspired writes. Without the background explanation, I would certainly have interpreted this another way. A gift you have too, for verses with deeper implication while treating them lightly. Love the impudence in the line "Yeast you have failed me in these dire moments". Need I say the rating? PS. On your question re JIM...haven't gone on an adventure with him lately, maybe you can suggest ...

    This is actually my third visit here. I read this twice, before you posted your blogs... did a little reading about the background, and still didn't know how to comment! lol I really like your poem, it's very deep. You're good at this kind of writing. I like the blog too.

    Dear Arthur Striking images Arthur which it was made to be a raw message to be placed upon the bar-b-que this memorial day. Sorry do dolls on in my oven today its broke down lol but I loved this one for it's intensity so I give it a seven for the flavor of power it brings to the page of reality, it is a really great work even though others may not understand it I do my friend more than you know, bravo again, cheri

    Beautiful-sad-gloomy typical Arthur's writing :o) This gave me chills really, to have such an innocent thing like oven get related to suicide. Thank you for the mental image I guess? :P Excellent writing as always, Arthur. Cooking would never feel the same anymore!!

    Deeply disturbing write my friend but suicide is such an event.. You gave great cause to think deeply on this and we should consider the value of life.. A7...

    Conflicting thoughts in my mind going 90 to nothing is causing emotional friction.. Is this serious or not.. No rest till I know...........

    You have captured an image (line 12: My death) of suffering in a very magical way--"re-birth," is a new beginning or coming out of darkness...Much enjoyed!...Kind regards, Ligella

    Never, of no i importance, lol, I agree with Andrea, an image of dough girls lined up to bake is so funny.....Seren

    this one really humors me, Arthur. I am imagining little Pillsbury dough boy girls backing in the oven.
