MEERA SURESH Apr 1
I NEED MIRACLES
TO DILUTE MY STRUGGLES
WITH AN OVERWHELMING LIST OF IMPOSSIBLES
WAITING TO BE ENUMERATED AS PROBABLES
LEARNING TO BE PHYSICALLY STRONGER
PRACTICING TO BE MENTALLY TOUGHER
NOW HUSTLING IS MY ONLY INCANTATION
AS SUCCESS IS MY ADDICTION
AFTER REPEATED STRUGGLES AND HUSTLES AND REPEATED FAILURES.STILL IM ALIVE,UP STRAIGHT FOR THIS CHALLENGE.I M CRAVING FOR SUCCESS.AND I KNOW I WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE IT WITH DIVINE'S HELP
Terry Collett Oct 2019
I practise on my clarinet
do the scales
up and down
though various keys

then I take a wash
before dinner
and wonder
if Johnny Dodds
practised scales
as I had before dinner

after dinner
I put on
the Louis Armstrong's
Hot Five record
and sit and listen

Marion I recall
sang hot numbers
and when
they got too hot

she'd take a bath
and lift the soap suds
to her palms
and gush them
sexually
beneath her arms.
Got Guanxi Apr 2015
I tried a hundred times,
and a thousand times more,
but why?
To become the master,
I had to fail,
more times,
than the beginner is yet to try.
With gestures increasingly erratic with every strike
And punts as constant as ink gliding across ivory
Our vigilant artisan gathers his wisdom on combat's eve.
This is a little Sijo that I wrote to reflect my long-term love for Eastern culture. I felt inspired to write this after watching too much of "Two Best Friends Play Yakuza 4."
