i'd gnormally tell you dis [ aillusions ]

green peas in misshapened can:
the peace corps guy's accusations
i am the speye in the skeye
who doesn't brush his teeth unless
i wasn't meeting the president
coo through the harp, ooh blues so sharp
rope around wrist on a one-night tryst
jetlagged or cho[w]king on the mow-low
sunday's still a workday tijuana fever by the river
looking @ a shelled-side non-spirit cajoling
the gold eagle, looking back half-empty
with conversation converted to tortured songs
or broken beer bottle or whine glass
cubed things sketched by the hands, framed
or in the hands framed: the kew-bing; hands
groping, lost in trail looking for the cave
the craziest thing you'll ever do
you're weirder than i am i never knew
books in shelves meant for elves kneading growth
out of the box and into it by intuition
kite in the blue book flown on a delighted stranger's day
light brassieres flying from a horseless half-a-story carriage
petting the goat's hair in the humdrum of the perky cushions
well, waist-monkey will be mine
                       till it's too dirty to wear around
take its picture before i take it home
                       in my low-cost coconut shirt
i oversleep drunk and arrive two hours
too late for the gig where pals are wont to gag me
to death, finger pointed in the right direction
could've sung, played guitar in front of 256 people
but ryan's just a kid and i'll let him know
i got trouble putting my thoughts in order but
can listen to my rapid eye movement all day
and that's my dirty secret
amongst countless
others of course

i like how you write about the people here, fract.
it's something i really enjoy.

it would be nice if your elves made cookies in a tree.
i didn't follow this completely, but that is nothing new.
nice to read your stuff anyway.

giggles, for saying brassiere.  =-)
 — jenakajoffer

hi, jen. thanks.

these are certain events i've been through -- most of them with
a good friend  -- told in something like that piece by gnormal's
with some of my own personal twists.

it would be nice if i saw elves for real first, hehe.
: )
 — fractalcore

slight changes there.
any thoughts on how i can improve this?
: )
 — fractalcore

is line 3 a reference to an Alan Parson's song?
 — DeformedLion

yep, DeformedLion.

maybe i should call the piece "My Book of Aillusions"
as almost every line/word in it is a reference to something.
: )
 — fractalcore

what do you think of the edits?
: )
 — fractalcore

i like the poem very much
 — nisetru

i'd cut the "it by"...no, i'd cut L20...and put in something new...

but, then again, i don't really 'get' this the way you do. It is quite good though, refreshing even.
 — DeformedLion

fucking awesome title by the way.
 — DeformedLion

nisetru, thank you so much,
: )
 — fractalcore

DeformedLion, thank you, dude.

that line you mentioned is deliberate by the non-rhyme
or otherwise just naturally supposed to be there as it is
directly related to the books.

i like the title, too.
: )
 — fractalcore

anybody else like/hate it?

 — fractalcore

anything anybody?

I like your writing style a lot.
 — Casiobone

didn't know you've written something like this. the reference you were saying are quite interesting and no one could have said it the way you do (so ticklish). just too many of something like this to ponder. nice :)
