happy christmas, willy gumb
jenakajoffer

it's hard to say how often
 1
i think of you anymore;
 2
hard when you're the white
 3
albumen of my sky
 4
stretched from its molten yellow orb.
 5
 
 
i rose with the cock today;
 6
your absence whipped my muse
 7
into a holiday soufflé,
 8
squeezed the yolk till it burst.
 9
 
 
i grieved in the manger;
 10
cloves scratched like talons
 11
as blood mulled in my throat;
 12
the lamb, black as an eight-ball
 13
and baby jesus sparkling like a rainbow,
 14
 
 
like the one that gave us light
 15
to touch
 16
to dance,
 17
to smash each other in the rain.
 18
 
 
i can't sustain it anymore,
 19
this sick love tossed into the pot–
 20
all these years
 21
and you're still sitting in the window.
 22
 
 
i want to knock your block off, bill
 23
but it's christmastime
 24
and i don't give a damn about eggs–
 25
i miss you this time of year
 26
and you are slow as molasses.
 27
 
 
don't make me chase you
 28
or i'll slam-dunk your gumdrop buttons
 29
and plumb your boy-pudding
 30
till your nog splits.
 31
 
 
that'll be my gift to you; that's how i love
 32
at christmastime.

You are as transparent as air, Jenkas, and so is charlie brown.

1-34 clicks
but after that i think you could make a new poem
35-47 should be a poem in itself
 — mandolyn

I have a compelling sense of déjà vu.
Other than that, please note the spelling of separates.

I won't trifle with food puns, you big fruit cake. This butter tart of a Christmas poem made mince pie out of anything else I consumed this year. You were really stuffing the shortbread and assulting the mixed nuts right out of the box.

I love this beyond all measure, and hope St. Nick made you cheeks rosy red!
 — PaleHorse

17-23 are sublime, Jenaka.  23 in particular built the most delicious visuals.  I love that you're not afraid to defile everything!  
 — sybarite

I don't know Bill but I am sure he will get his nogs split some day soon.

your poem is quite masculine in voice, not saying that is a bad thing. not your typical cheery christmas poem but it is quite unique.
 — ghost

This is so cheesy and I HATE cheese, but I really like this poem!  It's got that longing all over it, but exudes humor as well which softens the sadness and turns it to gladness.  My favorite lines are 14-34.  There's somethin' about that copper pot that resonates with me.  Don't know.  :-)
 — starr

Line seven is a bag of Lola for me.

Line ten great themes.

Line sixteen and twenty the same.

I got a little queesy during the bill I mIss your ginormous pen that writes poetry in my heart. Return to the earlier narration and id be more than happy to downthis glass of cyanide eggnog and drift into oblivion blown by the winds of the western holiday.
 — Known

Btw I don't know who Lola is but I'm sure her nIckname is LOLS
 — Known

oh billy, willy ginormous bastard of a muse!

thanks all the for comments at christmastime, Z, you're playful response is very cute and fun, :)

you're all right, the ending turns this poem from nostalgic and longing to just plain nasty, and yes, a little bit gross.  that's ok though, i'm glad this poem sounds masculine and makes you feel cheesy and queasy.  although the natural human part of me wishes it ended more bittersweetly narrated, it IS a character poem, and she's a sick bitch.  
 — jenakajoffer

Yeah yeah yeah let's get to the gritty part where your character gets mental cancer and has see a psychonaut to operate on her astrological sign and blames his drinking and eating for the pain she feels because her kitty won't let her into the house.
 — Known

oohh you said kitty! that's a keyword for bill!

thanks Known.  i don't know who lola is either but i know who lolita is.

LOLS, funny.  :D
