poem - shut the fuck up & read the fuckin thing

another open sun after night flew away
rising different always like today
her empty garden disappeared
because it never was
& like that one
no one answers the orchid far away having tears
something like a cloud falling on surf
further each day loneliess created nothing inside

oh but how treetops look locked in her prison
empty mirrors crawl orchid's length & width
of imagination as far as vastness may soar
none are giving in
all are the raindrops that strike as fists
blows to the soul
bruising finally cracked her china doll

hinges garden's gate never swung open
not to swing shut
just closed up praying with no name
not to be a song all day heard
the night cold & far from pleasant
just a few lost hands
dazed
cracked like sidewalks with so much green coming up through
a sign it'll be alright

we'll be ok

no more forever."

    thanks for putting this up  i just got back in the forum after a 6 year hiatus
    the 5th pm conversation in my inbox was a lengthy one with Wickweed in 2014 before i let go of my membership
    it was a little unsettling    but more comforting 
    i had the enormous pleasure of seeing shows with him and rollings and visiting again just for fun   how i love them
    fuck 'em if they can't take a joke

  • À gain. ..are we winning yet? Like the cooperative games myself

    Funny, I'd never seen this before now.  Yet when I saw the title, I just knew it was a chadwick product.

    PS - vogon, you're writing like I'm feeling ;)
