Scrawled in black ink across the pale page.
Read too deep
Into my choice of seal.
It is an “X”
In dark, red wax.
Just like you once were.
I am longing for a handsome naked friend
To lie here beside me
To whisper to me softly
Kiss my forehead sweetly
Yes, I have a specific one in mind,
But tonight, anyone will do.
You’re not the only one who’s lonely.
“Why, hello there, sir!
You seem a lover-ly sir!
Such a lover-ly sir!
Do you have some peanuts?”
That’s what I said to the sir. He had no peanuts to give me. He just looked at me through a big, black eye that made a funny noise when it blinked.
Like a snappin’ twig! CRICK!
The sir didn’t scare me, no no no! My mother always said one should be scared of sirs, but he was a NICE sir. A lover-ly sir! All peanuts and fruit and lover-ly! Mother would be proud o’ him if he was a one of ussems, but he wasn’t an ussems. He was a sir, but no barky-barkys here. No string-falls, no trap, no trap. Not this sir!
Like I told you, told you, told you again! He was a lover-ly sir!
He smelled like he would have peanuts.
What are you doing at my door?
Somebody ought to tell you
That it’s polite to knock.
But using of fangs is always such a rude gesture…
Somebody should tell them it’s just how I say ‘hello’
When I invite my little crrrrritters
In for our dinner parrrrrrty.
You with your big, round eye
I see you with all of mine
You big black creature blocking the ssssssun!
Hell, I do it all the time otherwise!
On a side note, this is the first time I have updated my blog from an email. Hopefully it will work. If you are reading this, then it appears I had nothing to fear.
Your widow, your blind side.
The girl you will never see properly,
The way I wished you would.
Don’t threaten me with ignorance.
Don’t threaten me with cruelty.
Don’t threaten me with cool, calm deliverance into the arms of despair,
Because whatever you offer me,
I am sure to take it,
Because it came from you.
