popcorn

22 Oct

why can’t it be cancer
at least then
they could stick me
in the microwave
with the popcorn
and maybe
i’d be well
instead
vampires rape
and pillage my
blood
turning me upon myself
stealing years
and movements
moments and opuses
leaving my legacy
shriveled
like a spent dick

    >Hugs. Cancer is evil, too…but I know what you're saying. Sorry I haven't been around much lately….been sick with a nasty cold and have been trying to get to as many blogs as I can, but I know I missed yours. 😦 Forgive me?

    >be careful what you wish for, sweetie. chronic illness sucks, no matter what it is. I hope you kick your illness's ass and thank you again for sharing your life with all of us. If I knew where you were, I'd bring you a bowl of homemade chicken soup (Jewish penicillin, better than any drugs!)

    >Holy shit, this is a good one today. I can never get enough of your poetry.

    >Thanks everyone. Another one that seems to have hit a nerve that I didn't expect to.I wouldn't wish cancer upon anyone. What I was saying is that at least with cancer – unlike AIDS – there is the option of trying to fry that shit into remission, whereas now, I don't have that luxury. Whatever…

    >Touching Rabbit. I like your style. and like you say, "whatever…"

    >This was a friggin powerful poem. Just keep up the good fight!You know I've had a battle with Big Mr. C myself this past couple of years. In my case they at least had a proven game plan to deal with it. So I TOTALLY understand what you mean and why you say it. No offense taken my friend!

    >I got what you were saying w/o taking it the wrong way. My mom has bladder cancer and said, "why couldn't it be breast cancer? Then the could just slice my tits off." Well, I'm pretty sure she doesn't say "tits" but you get the idea.

    >I read your posts in my inbox. The reason why it took me so long to come here and leave a comment is because I did not know what else to say. It moved me.

    I love what you’ve done with the inspiration – only one quick bitch – my name is spelled – Jhon…
