DRUNK SONNET 2

BODIES FLOAT WITHOUT BALLAST
AND I GUESS THAT'S WHY I'M HERE
AND I GUESS THAT'S WHY YOU'RE HERE
AND WHY, HARDLY, I STILL LOVE YOU

WE FORGOT THE ROCKS AND
WE FORGOT THE CEMENT AND
THE HEAVY SHIT IS SOMEWHERE ELSE
BUT I WANT TO BREATHE UNDERWATER

LIKE BUBBLES I WANT TO TOUCH YOUR DEAD FACE
WITH MY DEAD FACE TO LICK YOU WITH AIR
THE WEEKENDS ARE GONE AND SO ARE THE NIGHTS

I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER THE TIMES THAT I LOVED YOU
BUT I DO AND I WANT TO REMEMBER THEM LIKE I DRANK TOO MUCH
AND WHAT EVEN HAPPENED I DON'T EVEN KNOW

I still don't see why KGM won't write a sonnet...

because i doubt kendra has ever taken a poetry class. i think she could write a great sonnet.

Daniel Bailey said...

kendra, write sonnets please. sonnets, as a form, are made to contain the crazy fucked up beauty in your poems.

just sayin, i 'm drunk. i think i'll write another sonnet now, though i may not be the best for the form.

i don't mean to sound like only those who have taken a poetry class can care about sonnets. i really don't care about sonnets. i like having a 14 line limit and having the turn. that's about it.

i feel like kendra's approach to poetry is far different from the "i think poetic forms are even worth considering" approach.

i don't want to discourage kendra from attempting sonnets though.

has kendra said that she won't write a sonnet?

god, i need sleep.
