The Art of Tweet-sized Poetry: Few Words, Much Feeling
Marianne Moore was never so confounding as when she dabbled in simplicity. In The Complete Poems of Marianne Moore, published in 1967, the 80-year-old poet had ruthlessly pared down “Poetry” from 29 lines to three:
I, too, dislike it.
Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one discovers in
it, after all, a place for the genuine.
COMMENTARY by Kathleen K., indie author and publisher
Poetry has been taken out of the hands of most readers, sadly denying them the fun of discovering writers who are wringing out the distractions and conveying the message. Erotica poetry has the double-burden of being naughty and nerdy. Don’t flip it off so fast, it might fertilize your fantasies.
Arching Over (Collected Collections of Graphic Poetry) assembles four small books of erotica poetry into a compendium of oddly thoughtful words about love∞sex. The book has been professionally assessed by Kirkus Reviews:
[This] collection of erotic poetry offers a cavalcade of love affairs, focusing on the narrator’s moment-to-moment fantasies and experiences.
A sprawling collection… that intriguingly lays out a dance of seduction in all of its conceivable steps.
I invite you to consider the following samples, out of context, to discover if perhaps Tweet-sized poetry is one way to yank your mind around.
resurrect the words
that have been drowned in soap
i’m not supposed to like hearing them
any more than you are supposed to like saying them
want to feel you again against me
wrapped around your wishes
want to know the commotion
at the center of your sensual self
from clit down slit
and back up
10 repetitions, 4 sets
serial jack off
first, me for you
then you on me
i didn’t lie
those are my own pinch marks…
i missed you so
the goal is to go over
from behind me
your hands curve
and cover my breasts
like my own do
i sit up
you stand back
It is your own hand that brings you off
but it is my voice in your ear
as you crest, as you peak,
you at the vertex
with me in the vortex.
