You’d better submit some poetry
’cause if you don’t I will kill thee
The method of which
I know not yet
but this I will do
you’d better you bet
I could chop off your balls
put them in a cup
or nail you to walls
hang you right up
I could slice off your toe
watch you bleed to death
or shoot with one blow
to take that last breath
But Oh! Mr. Poet
your life I would spare
for just a few poems
perhaps if you dare
The choice is yours
some poems or the knife
’cause for me Mr. Poet
poems are my life

    There will always be a poem
    I will climb on top of it and come
    In and out of time,
    Cocking my head to the side
    As I finish shaking, melting then
    Into its body, its soft skin

    Jim Carroll, “Poem” from “Void of Course” (1998)

    Poet who wrote, among others, “The Basketball Diaries,” (movie-DeCaprio) and who died 9-11-2009. He would agree with you. You might know his song “Catholic Boy,” (movies-“E.T.” & “Dawn of the Dead”) from “People Who Died” album–late 1970s punk musician and considered the best poet of his generation. Thanks for your poem. Keep writing.

      Ahhh – I started a new job and have been super-busy with all that. But rest assured me and my little furry friends will be catching up on here tomorrow or Monday! Thanks for thinking of me! That’s sweet.
