the camus syringe
friedMnoodle

i f'd joey last night
 1
with my camus syringe,
 2
he went all dark of thought
 3
'nobody will ever love me'
 4
i says "hush my darling,
 5
 
 
-- he jumps onto my thought,
 6
steals my mouth, squeaks--
 7
 
 
it's experiential, as to say:
 8
godless."
 9
 
 
nodding my head, i realized maybe
 10
it wasn't such a good idea...he could get
 11
the wrong idea...spurt inside me,
 12
and swim inside the semen like a
 13
a little itsy-bitsy sperm
 14
right up inside my head...
 15
infect me with queer ideas on
 16
the Poet and the Poem.
 17
could make me smart, make me
 18
get a hard on for intellectual
 19
gratification, talk of symbols
 20
and simpleton unknowns- then
 21
crash them together like the
 22
monkey in this poem.
 23
 
 
and i would be pacified in my urge
 24
to ever look outside, but to only
 25
let the outside look at me,
 26
--watch me pee. watch me. watch me--
 27
squeaks he, like the mattress
 28
and the coils conversing
 29
as the world bounces up and down,
 30
fucking the Poet not the Poem.

yah, it was fun, but, as aeverbody knows i'm a top, so obviously you were bombed again and got the whole thing turned around, as they say, and beer is for queerz, but really. this is pretty good, and once again it shows that when people write light verse with a real and identifiable object they write stronger than just getting off on the t.v. screen.

fun read, but littlenormalqueerboyconsciousness for the straight guy would make this kind of more, you know, brilliant.

we are not worthy... a 9 for nearly perfect
