Poetry and personal blog – Spilling my guts to strangers

Idiot

Absurd and lethal,
You are as unhealthy
As a full-on pork loin–
Raw and fat–
Slathered with
butter cream icing.

Still,
I love your mortal foolishness.

*****************************

I did not use the NaPoWriMo prompt for this poem.

Instead, I looked through my random scraps of paper I often write notes on, and tinkered with this one I must have scribbled down months ago. Maybe I should have left it as a scribble…

  2. Is it wrong that it makes me hungry Sweepy? lol Ok seriously…very good and provocative…comparing a poison love to taking into ourselves something we know hurts us, or has the potential to hurt us…very nice! Go girl!

  3. One reading it reads hard…the next reading it feels light and affirming ….which makes it a good poem indeed.

    I think the word choice of “Still,” makes it so good.

    Regards,

  4. Now I want to go and raid the fridge Missy. I liked the poem. Mortal foolishness makes it for me.
