Poetry is Pornography

Well, is this poem doing it for you?

Should I dress it up in black lace and garters
and shakily strut my stuff in haughty heels
for your emotional erection?

Just what I thought,
a pathetic poetry pervert,
another silent stalker
eavesdropping in the thick midnight,
snooping through shameful shadows

(hold on while I reapply the crimson lipstain)

Oh, you like it like that?

I’ll do whatever you need to get you to 
feed and suck 
on this saccharine heroin

Here, let’s get it over with

Slide the drapes closed will you?

     Under darkness, over muffled traffic 
     come crawling wet mouth sounds . . .

That’s right
I just caught you gawking in shock 
at the silhouette moaning my depravity

What, are you done?  

Then roll back over
and let me shake in your vacant silence.

    increidibly creative, it reveals that poetry is often changed just to suit the pulic opinion and get more views or reads. very original, and although this is coming very late, congrats on the win...

    Nothing is more traditional than poets holding readers in difference to their other interpretation ... this is very fresh take on it, and O so contemporary. Good! Thanks again for reading my work as a friend, and for the inspiration your presence brings. One love
