Go to the land so narrow at girdle,
That the band of its steeds seem to fly through the time,
Vladimir, rule culture! Pozzo, mash curdle!
I arrived for the snow, a boy in his prime.

Go to the slant of the pebble and wine,
Where its towers are bosomed into Estragonís sign;
Where I drank all beer, and impressed with the plume,
Spilled paint unto Lucky riding his broom.

Go to the grand, to its maids faring prude,
And the boys in the summer gales singing so nude,
To the land of the war, to its hues of blue mire!
When sailors grow wary, into dreams they retire.

Sail to the strand, to the oceans weeping carmine;
Where they burgeon the gaff, the salsa, the swine,
And you take that Estragon, that scarab of man, now supine,
Unbecome bland! Take the hand of my son ó
Do you whistle a reed? I whittled you one!
Go through the sand, ascend our bare well,
Go to Miss Knave, to her masses, and teach them to spell.

Where is Godot?
Teflon this read very well. It simply flowed straight through. I won't pretend to understand everything written within it, but it felt joyful.

Alex :-)

Londongrey sails through
that's why I thought you'd get it..."band of its steeds seem to fly through the time" is as simple as towers blossoming into Estragon's sign!
Come on! You're the one who's into sailing here!

Maybe you will underslant the next one, The Kint.

waiting for godot
I don't really know the play - just that is supposed to be absurd - but I really liked this poem. I also don't understand it. Matters not, felt really great to read. Made my own images, thanks Alex. huni.

Especially for Huni:
That's right, it makes your own matches.
Thanks for wooking.

This is written well and seems to flow, but what's the point if few know what you're writing about? As such, this comes off as condescending and writing for yourself (which is fine) as opposed to others.

Stumped thee, Staggerlee?
How many times do I have to remind you -- I do what Godot sayeth. He toldeth me,"Thou shalt write and they'll onthestand, they have the Imagy Nation."

I think you also have the Imagy Nation. You don't want to tell poor Becket and Godot that they are condescending, do you?

Private, for Lilia.
Thanks for readin'.

Have you ever danced under a harvest moon in a summer gale while being worshipped as Goddess of Flesh?

That initial post of yours, by the way, helped me move forward with the Figure Skater stories and regain imagination for pieces like this one.

Until you joined the site I never though there'd be another real person who also occupies that unearthly rank.

On our search for channeling our mad obcession we tried a Tantra Center in a big city --that turned out to be a bunch of pathetic Hare Krishna wannabes that forgot their spiel and drooled over her. No, thanks. I took her home. I started a book that is now over 500 pages. I cut snippets out of it, changed, edited, and that is the adventures of the Figure Skater.

hmm Condescending?
Well Tef sir, I like this alot...true it flows. Sometimes when the depth of understanding is not there 100%, it can pull people to come of their own understanding, thus....people like it, and comment how you have woke something up perhaps a small vision or memory...
You do that alot, you are a damn good writer Tef.

Love your style, maybe that 10 percent that I dont' always understand is what keeps me coming back for more, to find out a little more of our mystery man...LOL...
ok, now that said, where is my drink?
