a deadly thing

March 24, 2020

If a witch needs something, another witch will give it to her. If there is war to be fought, we don’t consider cost one of the factors in deciding whether or not it is right to fight. Nor do we have any notion of honour. An insult to a bear is a deadly thing. To us…inconceivable. How could you insult a witch? What would it matter if you did?

Philip Pullman
The Golden Compass

I must begin with first the illusion of an intention. The poem begins to form from the first intention. But the intention is already breaking into another. The first intention begins me but of course continually shatters itself and is replaced by the child of the new collision…The poem is more than the poet’s intention. The poet does not write what he knows but what he does not know.

man’s evil prying

March 5, 2020

There are horrors beyond life’s edge that we do not suspect, and once in a while man’s evil prying calls them just within our range.

Kinky Sunday Gangbang

October 13, 2019

She didn’t look very comfortable trussed up like that, the woman in red. Her legs were spread impossibly wide and we could see the straining gusset of her stripy white and black panties. She had tattoos on her ankles, calves and thighs. Her hubby had used duct tape to gag her, to trap any complaint or hint of compliance on her part – although everyone knew she was very compliant as this was, after all, her fantasy.

‘Okay,’ said hubby. ‘Who wants to have her first?’

Six men immediately raised their hands.

‘In that case, you’re going to have to cut cards for her. Don’t worry we’ve got all day. You can have her as many times as you want…’

A pack of playing cards was produced.

‘Each of you take a card. Highest card wins. Then form a queue highest card to lowest. Just push her panties to one side and you’ll have access to everything you’re likely to need…’

the final temptress

October 3, 2019

I am the one who fears nothing and from whom no one abstains. I am the final temptress. I am beautiful as death. I am waiting for a certain man with a red knife.

Dancing to silence

July 12, 2019

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

  • Please note boys and girls, this quote is sourced to Friedrich Nietzsche all over the internet, but that is rubbish – poor old Nietzsche NEVER wrote or said this – nor anything like it! The TIMES newspaper in 1927 published this:

“They who dance are thought mad by those who hear not the music. The truth of the old proverb was never more surely borne out that it is just now.”

Little Prayer

let ruin end here

let him find honey
where there was once a slaughter

let him enter the lion’s cage
& find a field of lilacs

let this be the healing
& if not let it be

From the collection : Don’t Call Us Dead

These poems can’t make history vanish, but they can contend against it with the force of a restorative imagination. Smith’s work is about that imagination — its role in repairing and sustaining communities, and in making the world more bearable….Their poems are enriched to the point of volatility, but they pay out, often, in sudden joy…But they also know the magic trick of making writing on the page operate like the most ecstatic speech.(The New Yorker)

Five years ago, I decided to try being involved with a woman because I had many unsuccessful relationships with men and I wondered if I was missing out. I met a lesbian on POF and we dated for about 2 months, and we had sex 3 times, and it was weird. Eating pussy is really weird. It tastes like a 9-volt battery. Women are hard to give orgasms to. I felt very inadequate. Anyway, I realised that I was definitely straight and I’m glad I tried it because now I know. Also, as an aside, she gave me the best head I’ve ever received.

Lost & found

May 25, 2019

Rilke warned young poets against large sweeping topics, since those are the most difficult and demand great artistic maturity. He counselled them to write about what they see around them, how they live each day, what’s been lost, what’s been found. He encouraged them to bring the things that surround us into their art, images from dreams, remembered objects. ‘If daily life seems impoverished to you,’ he wrote, ‘don’t blame life. You yourself are to blame. You’re just not enough of a poet to perceive its wealth.’ This advice may seem mundane and dim-witted to you. This is why we called to our defence one of the most esoteric poets in world literature — and just see how he praised so-called ordinary things!
