Loud grunting

(Innuendo -- Pigs)

All around are sticks and stone
Feel God's loving arms around you
-----At last, I am redeemed-----

A feast of my soul, you shall receive
A cake for dinner, I made out of stones
Ratchet pigs fill their dirty mouths, 
Consuming my soul, sipping on champagne

At peace with myself, brushing off the walls
Nevertheless, tonight they speak in tongues
-I strain my ears to listen;
While pettitoes approach my page
I hear the squeals, I hear the chit chat
from he/she that wears no shame.
Am I she, the evil one?
The one you penned -
Under the influence of manipulation
Trying to stifle my voice of beauty
No matter, I am crazy, a dreamer
Never claim to be THE INNOCENT, 
The Poet Destroyer!!! 

I ignore the walls when they speak
Nevertheless, tonight they have eyes
They watch my every move
A trotters dance, of togetherness
Forgetting the reason we are here
I will win and conquer my privacy

You can't destroy what you can't see
I am the glory of my day
I am God's pet!!!
A Lamb, wearing white
To others a wolf in disguise
Spitting slithers, swear 
I am the Devil's Advocate
I marvel how they snort at night
Today I will crash the sore whispering party
You! My friend, no longer exist
You are naught more than cobwebs
You will dream about me, write about me
I will give you ammo, then read it from you.
I will show you what a demon is!
Like the light and envy of every moon
I shall ask my reflection and remove
the residue from hogging lips.

I will watch you urbane the truth
The heat and lust I conquer from you
A font with no reflection, dating apples
Heading away from its own advice
A hard task from its quill, enjoying leftovers
Pinpointing fingers among shallow dreams
It's sickening to see pigs pat each others back
Feeding on my demonic words
Convoying innuendos in my bearing
Now it's my turn, to turn the roaster on

With no interest in removing muddy sheets
I shall smile and walk away
In - joy - my heart beats and smiles
Knowing, I made you look  --- AGAIN!!!

A poet looking at herself, looking at some other self in the process. Well, probably many selves all looking at each other. There's a maddening brilliance here because it points out that, whether we realize it, we are all doing the same damn thing. If I were to rate this, I would give it a 100. Love, Old daver

A beautiful way to express anger and disgust. There are some pretty unpleasant souls that we have to deal with at one time or another. You are the person never to double-cross!! Anyone who does is making a big mistake!!

I guess we wondered how you felt and how you might say it for a second or so. Then you came out of the page and erupted from my screen with such speed and force I had to duck. Watching you recede I marveled: mind-numbing your sacrosanctity.

I think I know what you were writing about and this is an excellent and therapeutic 'come back' to all that nonsense. Well written metaphors speak volumes! CayCay

Dear Linda I'm glad you like the new poems I've posted the coach, the dream etc. these are in the first two books, that I've just finished. I am trying to adjust to my hubby's earily retirement, but it is not easy he seems more needed than usual, I'm trying to be patient but I need some space soon. I'm alot younger then him, but age doesn't matter at least where love is concerned but space is a good thing right. Well talk to you soon, drop me a line or so, again don't be a stranger, cheri

Dear Linda I'm going to up date you on what's going on, hope you do the same sister poet. I have finished the first two books, but I still have to work on the third. After doing the others I realized it needed a little bit more of the dark side organization, I may have to write a few more of these darker goodies that you realish so much. Cheri

Dear Linda By the way don't worry about the Hello Dolly poem I know it's kinda corny, I'll think of something else another time. I'm finally over the flu but it sucked having it when I had my vacation time, I took another paid day off next week so I'll have to make up for it then. Well I missed the walking dead I'm bummed but my hubby called the Tv that night what could I do. But at least I caught up with my face off series, love that show, cheri

Nice to see a poet that can reach down past the steam pipes to the furnace. "I will show you what a demon is! Like the light and envy of every moon" Tho these lines are quoted out of cadence, they are a surprise detonation when coupled.

Delightful lines, delightful flow! The hilarious vision of pigs patting each others back shall stick in my mind long after here.

The author has allowed herself to be led, although leery about the destination of her guide, for her trust has yet to be rewarded and she is angered and frustrated by the process she has to undergo to change her life, interpreting her soul she listens to the warnings and the promises written on the wind.

You are just too much!! In truth, you are strong, gifted and resilient as well as talented, a superhero, and ever-present. I am always struck by the way you weave these words into mats, and then you pull the rug out from under any detractors!! They must be crazy!
