... the other Black experience
Poetry night at the House of Spookycreep. Actually I don't write anything as high brow as Poetry with a captial "P", I write rhymes.
Hope you find it amusing.
Thank you Ms. Kiss. A few have asked me what the rhyme means and in truth, I was just having fun with words. No deep meaning was intended at all beyond making a rhyme with a jab to the juggler vein at the end of it. A horror story set to rhyme basically.
The poison apple however could be a lot of things_ like my cigarette habit fer- instance. Hell, life it'self could be considered the poison apple since in the end we die, each and everyone of us took a bite out of that apple just by being born. Can't spit it out now.
Sorry it took me so long to reply. My laptop's hardrive went out.
Your poem are dark and quirky. Who does the alligator represent? I'm trying to wrap my head around that one.
Short, dark and bittersweet. Very charming. I like the music too, btw.
I'm glad u jumped in between us, but seriously, I agree and vote for the balanced approach, and Spooky, I see ur point...kudos
hate to jump in here bros but even though the feminine was the basis of many a school of thought you cant rule out the balance of all things. the feminine being the creative and more emotion side of thinking could just as easily spiral out of control as the militant masculine method. that's why we have to lobes and it takes two people to make a baby. :3 otay i done
Eastern thought is feminine, it's all about becoming one with nature. Western thought wants to control and dominate it_ a masculine mode of being. We're not talking sex here but two different ways of looking at things. I would say that both modes have their place in the scheme of things but the feminine should lead, compassion is a greater vaule than control.
Excellent! worms and apples for all. but u mustn't exclude eastern man
all of man share in this guilt
i know i do
Talk about a picture being worth a thousand words!
Wicked and very thought provoking. This one doesn''t inspire poetry, it inspires philosophy.
One could say it graphically illustrates what Christianity thinks about woman: they are the temptation, the apple and the snake. Further, believing as I do that a Goddess was the first deity man concieved of _it is proven fact that the image of a garden, the snake, man and woman and tree are from myths older than the old testament story_the snake appears to be smiling in this image because it knows Goddess will have the last word.
You opened up a can of worms and a barrel of apples with this one. Posion apple indeed. Western man has posioned it.
perhaps or maybe...
Hmmm... a snake, an apple and a tree...
