    Scarlet Draino (01/05/05)


    I don't know where my lover went, but she left a trail of crumbs.
    Pissing in the alley of my heart,
    don't forget it has a carburetor on it, you might call it a hole.



    Where did she hide her loyalty?
    Oh, she hung it on the clothesline and raped it's child.
    How original. I'll remember that when I choke on it next time.



    Am I bitter?
    I don't know, I've never tasted myself.
    Why don't you bite me and find out?



    You want poetry that rhymes?
    Oh, how Hallmark of you. You can find me,
    on row 7, aisle b, trying to keep my bagel down.



    Traditional? Yeh, if your tradition is getting
    gut kicked by insecure control freaks,
    who can't control their insecure freaks.



    Don't worry, I'll get better. When I die.
    You'll know because the checks will have stopped
    coming. Oh, you didn't notice that the door was locked.

    Thanks. I actually wrote that poem last night because...

    A.) I have been holding a festerting wound within my heart from a trashed engagement from a year ago.

    B.) Someone mentioned, about my other 3 poems posted recently, that they didn't really like poetry that rhymed. So I said to myself..."Self"....I didn't ask what because I was right here, next to me...but I said "you write poetry that doesn't rhyme".

    For some reason, I associate non-rhyiming free style poetry with more dark subject matter. Being a triple Libra, I go both ways at most things except politics.

    FYI: I have always been mad about the name Scarlet. Scarlet Draino was an andogynous glam persona I created back in 1980, before I became a pre-mature geezer! Peace, Viv-

    thank you for the detailed explanation....it's always interesting to hear the author's thoughts on their own work....

    ....and i've always been mad about the name scarlet as well.....
