Formerly Badass Horrible Poetry

This isn't just a poetry blog. Let's be honest, a lot of what I post is poetry but there are more often than not also postings about short stories. I do try to keep this blog separate from my others and post strictly creative work here. Some of it will be better than others, and much of it is in first or second draft stage when posted. These are raw works, and there will be spelling and grammar troubles at times because I use this blog to gauge what works and what doesn't. I use it as a place to get feedback. That's the reason it is "horrible". Because it's not finished-- And why should it be? We all want feedback but most of us are too afraid to put ourselves out there.

Welcome to my word.

Remnants - part 6




6.

there’s still half a glass of wine to go
but the peanuts
two inches salty
have arrived
the level in the glass
grins at the spectators;
down the stem
the base tugs on a thread
spoon rises
taste buds bite
and the thread falls slack
roasted beads funnel
back into the bowl
wine shoves a hand into the girls head
the ringing crystal voice
thrown into her mouth

peanuts are my god

Bacchus, God of the ventriloquist
