"Bless You!"

A short and silly poem about ideas.

Ideas are like sneezes.

Both symptomatic of dust,

fairy or matter.

Taunting human sense in shafts of light.

Daring to be caught,

to be ignited,

to be excited,

in debilitating orgasmic consumptive delight.

Until they are lost.

To untickled sense.

Become emissions, undispensed.

Left to drift in fevers of synaptic frustration.

A malevolence of expectation in deflation;

where the exhilaration of amelioration is lost to evaporation.

It is total anticipation annihilation incarnation.

Oh, if only one could guarantee

that the motes of dust,

fairy or matter,

would deliver the expected consumptive release

I should happily walk around

paper in hand

ready to capture whatever is set free.

Oh, to think, how full my bin

would be!

    So unique. It would be fun to read your poem side-by-side with Paul Stewart's Top Story poem about being a tissue.

    Brilliant! I loved so many lines, but 'in debilitating orgasmic consumptive delight' resonated to my core. Then 'A malevolence of expectation in deflation' really pinpoints the feeling. Great work, exciting imagery. Oh, the woes of art!
