Poetry Friday: The Word is BROKEN

The inimitable and charming Jeremiah has proferred up the Poetry Friday Word for today...BROKEN. (It broke my heart to type that just now, some knee-jerk gut reaction, I loves me some gut feelin' the first time my heart was broken.) Feel free to use this word in your blog post today, in whatever form you desire...something creative, something bizarre, something naughty or nice.

I have three submissions today, written whilst avoiding the inevitable Project discussions that await me at work today. IlovemyjobIlovemyjobIlovemyjob, I have to keep reminding myself.

Have a good weekend, y'all!

They Got the Fire Down Below

Curbside no tag the
Pink stuffing spilling out like
Knifefight guts like
Wretched excess with
Daddy’s money and
Mommy’s Lexus

Brian and Woodman and Bryan and Mike,
Bone and Ace and Stephan (like
In a borrowed truck
Deposit for the tap and
Two kegs cheap pizza
Fukkin’ rock and roll

Smelling new meat in the humid dusk
“Hey, wanna party?”,
sometimes the girls would stop and
sometimes Bone would run in the street
to stop them or to
chat them
wingman, dude, like a spider

before the cops came before
the girls puked and passed out to
ravish later
some Outkast thing made em jump
the arm popped off like Ace in the shower
pass-out couch now a chaise lounge

garbagemen took the body of the couch
but left the broken arm on the curb
the pink guts spilling out
the dna-crusted fabric bathing in the dew
things its seen
and singin’
hey yah

Tings Youse Got Wots Broken

Wull, yeah, dat pencil der.
And dat piece-o crap china.
How’s youse car runnin’?
Yeah, thought so.
Broken. Innit.

T’ain’t nuthin’

Wot broken in You.
Dat somethin’.

Dat ting in yer breath.
Youse calls it Spirit.
Dat broken.

Dat lil peach pit feelin’.
Youse calls it Soul.
Broken too.

N’nat ting in yer chest
Dat heart?
Dey break it r’ did youse?

Youse bettah, youse.
Youse bettah fix it.

‘Cause in dis worl’
Aint’ no bandaid, no glue
Fixit bettern’ wots inside youse.

Wow. The poetry is phenomenal. And in my current mood, even two eggs, broken sounds sad...

Yum @ Rocky Road Cheesecake

That is amazing poetry. Sheesh the best I could do was two silly ass pics. Oh well it's the spirit that counts.

Have a great weekend!
