Kill Me She Says

Kill me she says
Your little porcelain doll
All in pretty lace
And red lips

How harsh her words
Or petal rose
That spills from her throat
Like a crimson rope

Kill me she says
Your little precious hope
All pretty and lost
And tender hips

How foul her words
Or dainty rain
That falls from her face
Like a trickling leak

Kill me she says
Your little perfect love
All pretty and fast
And delicious kiss

A good narrative piece of poetry nicely penned.
This definitely a prose poetry, I enjoyed much. I love the scenes depicted in there. Good work
David, you have this amazing ability to hopscotch across the markers of anyone's life - so elegantly - non-apologetically bringing things to the front of the reader's mind that have otherwise been all but forgotten. Holding a glass of cola up to the sun to see its red tint, following the path of an ant as he traipse by your lawn chair... easy summer day man... How do you do that? It's so amazing... You know, daydreaming about a pretty girl on the courthouse steps, imagining her going - not to just any drug store - but a brick drug store - who in life hasn't walked into a brick drugstore without thinking about it or letting that memory go any farther than just that... I love your poetry, your mind. I was introduced to classical poetry as a child, quickly falling in love with Emily Dickinson, knowing her tragic story, the deep losses she felt, becoming a hermit in her old age - fearful of society - fearful of loving. I've always said that if I had lived during her day then I would have been knocking on her door every day - non stop until she answered it - just to tell her she's wonderful. You are one of the few poets of my own day whose door I would knock on too...
We got a young poet here - David Berman,28 years old - he's got a real chance to be 29 in a year. I don't want to be too harsh, but this is awfully dull and prosaic. (E. B. - I don't know what the E. stands for, but the B must be Berman.)
