My Reading of “Let Me Love Your Wild and Naked”

Sometimes, we just need a bit of Wild in our lives… and some Naked, too. Don’t you think so, my Wicked Luvs? I do think… and need Wild and Naked every now and again… and again. I’m sure that’s what I was thinking about when I wrote this poem, back in 2012…

Well, here is my reading of “Let Me Love Your Wild and Naked”:

I think I will do this every week… or every other week. I like the idea of sharing some spoken words, while I work on expanding my latest Bit. What do you think?

Expanding Wee Bits of Dark Fiction and Poetry, 6

Two weeks have gone by since “Weirdest” leapt in defense of her home. I’ve been a tad busy with family birthdays, medical appointments, delighting in the colors of autumn…

But I’m here now, right? And I’ve listed five of the word Bits I’ve shared on Instagram or Facebook this last handful of days. Do leave a comment letting me know which Bit you would like to see grow into a story or a full-length poem. I shall develop the one with the most votes. Please make your choice before Monday, November 23rd at 1:13pm EST.

1) Which bit do you wish me to develop?
2) Would you like your choice to be flash fiction or longer poetry?
3) *optional* Why?

Here is the short list:

“Balance”
Night cannot be avoided;
to preserve vision,
in light,
become the darkness.
– blacked out from the US Marine Corps Field Training Manual

“Inert Brain”
ash and air
in an inert brain—
this is death
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

“Whispers”
crepuscular fall
a forest whispers of death—
in the hearts of poets.
– created from my Edgar Allan Poe magnetic poetry kit

“Be”
Un-earth your senses;
imagine
and be.
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

“Miseries”
Prejudice is the breath of human miseries.
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind
