the cycle of the leaves--
DeformedLion

should have been posted on the 16th...oh well.

[GOODBYE,
 1
 
 
I shall go now. goodbye,
 2
see ya later
 3
 
 
allamagator,
 4
 
 
your teeth
 5
shine like a new-born
 6
fridge,
 7
 
 
opium reek in your hair
 8
[don't know, maybe],
 9
slight of hand poetic
 10
enabling the enabler,
 11
crystal cup of language.
 12
 
 
words pour out, shine--
 13
silver plated teeth,
 14
 
 
and I say goodbye, but what
 15
i really mean is
 16
 
 
hello. ]
 17
 
 
 
 
i.
 18
 
 
I love you guys like newborn love
 19
by spring time moon; iridescent, unshakeable.
 20
ours is sun and stars,
 21
and plenty black
 22
reach out,
 23
 
 
touch. touch the letter,
 24
and the rag,
 25
and write behind those
 26
strawberry lashes
 27
curling like unfettered
 28
hands. touch the stray
 29
and mighty both,
 30
slowly sip the water
 31
from out of space
 32
and come to one
 33
and come to all
 34
infinite!
 35
 
 
taking breath and magik,
 36
give it all away.  
 37
 
 
 
 
ii.
 38
 
 
silence offends us.
 39
bloom with the outthrust
 40
of a catapult-
 41
we speak the stone
 42
of broken heart:
 43
 
 
flowers gain a stony
 44
gleam.
 45
 
 
 
 
iv.
 46
 
 
drop me in the ocean,
 47
in the end
 48
i'll be forgotten.

i like this a lot, DeformedLion.
write on and leave not.
: )
 — fractalcore

No. I shall never leave.

Goodbye be but a little wink or full-on "come fuck me" with "Goodbye"-- first post here a little over a year ago.  
 — DeformedLion

hmm, interesting.
: )
 — fractalcore

yes, this is good. for me, lines:

5-7, the image of the fridge tooth is remarkable.

19, my preference but i would remove 'guys', i think you could use a stronger noun here.

24-35 and 47-49, brilliant.
