|Yellow Yellow Bride
large white balloons with black letters hovering.
watching intently his redshoes for
Look. There you go.
as pretty and quickly
as a fine-fine fox on wheels
grasping for your lost air and
falling dried yellow hair.
extending an arm into the sky
with that delicate white hand blooming,
a right-side bicep-tricep duo lengthening
for the Blue Overhead;
I and my bowtie follow.
we shout balloons at you, fucker!!
my bowtie spinning, my neck bent backwards.
it seems you are bleeding a wet red,
drip-dripping into my bright wide eyes----just
wait for the honeymoon, honey.
smeared white cake to your upper lip,
a charlatan beard. dripping nod, fevered.
you continue rising
too quick for gravity, you shout shout shout
something i can't hear. your eyes bulging shrieking your neck bursts open, bleeding
bone-armed and barely there.
God must be pulling you upward,
lovingly away .
your fingers laced,
your face resolved.
your white long dress is
still touching the earth.
i miss you, sugar.

...i have no idea what this means. i am probably just being slow though. but i really like the images and feelings i get from reading this. wow.
The sniping on the board is discouraging me from commenting more fully, but I will! This is something Else. It makes my head spin and my feet tap dance on yellow pillows.
i would not change a word except bust to burst and kill verbal
THANK YOU NOODLEBOY! FRIED.
Gorgeous! Absolutely amazing. My only critique is to relieve some of the intense obscurity of lines 19-21. I'm favoriting this.
i wuv you too mova fuka
Thank you fangz and borntodance and erbody springfever'd for a fcuk! <3
and yes i agree about the obscurity, i fix that, yes! later, its morning
i'm mourning your missed apostrophe
wow, this is really cool, although my interpretation of is probably nothing close to what you're describing...i just like the images, and the ending is great, i really like it.
This really does stagger me. Lines 20-22 sent me into a tailspin. This poem alone could turn a whole generation on to poetry. I wish it could be read in schools; that I do. You're startling.
Sounds a lot like Gerard Manley Hopkins in a corvette. I like the driving rhythm!
all lines are great. really good poem.
Yay, you fixed it!
Your use of the word "fucker" makes me happy.
Exactly what I love in a poem. It's so breezy it's like I'm not even doing any of the work, like it's reading itself to me. So so natural. Love it.
Also, I normally hate the use of curses in poetry, but damned if you don't do it well.
I've changed this.
THANK YOU JACK! I didn't even notice your comment there. It's a good comment.

you're breaking my heart! BRING BACK THE GOOD POEMS!!!!
Oh you mean the poetry I wrote with a lesser brain.
i've read this before, must be deja vu
This poem is absolute sex.
The narrative becomes unhinged from the image, and the image takes over in the penultimate stanza. I can't even describe how much I enjoy this.
I'm serious. Fucking sex. I wish I could break the drive of the narrative voice like this. Wish.
The same poem keeps reoccurring in here, i'm sure i've read this before.
gobsmackingly wonderful -- a standout.
It spills a heartbreaking choreography
chasing a yellow balloon bride who is
This is bewitching stuff.
recurring yellow and sarcasm I THINK. I am still amused due to the enthusiasm even as sarcasm.
urine soaked poem
