GOODNIGHT MR. NELSON

4/21/16  
It’s raining purple today
In the North Star state
We lost royalty
Who now sings with doves
And sweet Vanity
Good night, sweet prince, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

Computer Blue

And in struts poetic funk
In Mad Hatter Purple cloak
Cheshire kitty grin

Playin guitar like slick pussy
And I am eaqually wet

My first finger grind
Was found while "Darlin Nicky masturbating in a magazine."
Groaned out of stereo
And gave my perversions a voice

My purple sexuality
Mine "the running hot water of the daughter of morality"
As Prince grind my insides
And my bisexuality bloomed...

When "Wendy...Yes Lisa...is the water warm enough..Yes Lisa
Would you like to begin?...Yes Lisa.."
And I did...

His two guitar Goddess had my punani all a disco ball
... and i thought it could not get hotter..

Then came in the music of genius
Royalty played
In bottom lip bit
Determination
Finger meets string grenade
And gave my difference
A name....

Sex.....

Temptation....

I am in mourning.

George Harrison and Princes induction to R n R hall of fame
..While my Guitar gently weeps....a one of the great all time rock moments...(Dhanni Harrison...Georges son behind Prince...watch him look as my man gets down...Petty doesn't even know what to do.)

Oh please.
.sweetie. This man was a genius...he never left the top...he had the luxury to sit on top quietly. He was not a pop artist...
This man is Lennon to me
Like...fucking Motzart

Please be reverent...

Doo doo do do da dooo....

And in struts little man
Holdin guitar like his cock in hand
In funk rhyrhm sex sympho beat
He wound nympho into sexy woman
Not tramp...
But sexy vamp in lingerie...
He played my desire
In deep groove
He Syncopated so smoooothe
My clit to his finger sway
His fingers found way
To move me...

And he did in high rise heels
My ass still shakes
In thigh quiver memory
Of dance floor and pole
And I "Get off"
22 positions in a one night stand...

He was my soundtrack to many a great fuck...
And my soundtrack when i was in pure fantasy...
The soundtrack to my growing up and a million fan fucking tastic memories...

Oh my God..
I cannot believe we have lost
This huge little man...

*Dearly Beloved, We are gathered here today to get through this thing called life!*



While My Guitar Gently Weeps


I had the honor
of doing a Batdance
with
The Most Beautiful Girl In The World
who drove a
Little Red Corvette

She stared at my pressed ceiling
heels dripped on the
yellow wood floor
and sang Do Me Baby
while her eyes
whispered
I wanna be your lover

The truth is
She's Allways In My Hair
and you;
my special Prince
you
U Got The Look
But
Oh Partyman
today
Breakfast Can Wait

Today I mourn
it's been
All 7 and we've watched them fall
I miss you already
Sexy Motherfucker
I miss you, like it's
1999
There is a space in my heart
that beats by mistake
when I think of
you
My Hardrocklover

How Come You Don't Call Me
Lets just
Pretend We're Married
Because
Nothing Compares To You

-x-

THE GREATEST ROMANCE EVER SOLD  

I'm still choking on the nectar of your last words ...

I HATE U

It coats my skin and feeds my thirst for ol' No. 7

I remember that night on ALPHABET STREET when I thought you the MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD

We hid cloaked not as ourselves but as THIEVES IN THE TEMPLE nursing in THE ARMS OF ORION while others shuddered in the PURPLE RAIN

Didn't have a LITTLE RED CORVETTE so we rode the subway that night
already DELIRIOUS with the inevitable  

When it was time to GETT OFF and emerge into the night
you gave me a KISS
and whispered you wanted my CREAM
I squeezed you tight
my HOT THING

We danced over and under boundaries
not to be defined

Your eyes beckoning I WANNA BE YOUR LOVER

me?  

I whispered LET'S PRETEND WE'RE MARRIED you SWEET BITCH

thirsty in my need to peal back your PINK CASHMERE
using my lips to cascade o'er the MOUNTAINS and valleys that defined you

your body draped in warm DIAMONDS AND PEARLS

then THE MORNING PAPERS came
and you told me
I COULD NEVER TAKE THE PLACE OF YOUR MAN

because I'm just a PARTYMAN.

bartender I need another shot of Jack's

this nectar tastes it's sweetest WHEN DOVES CRY with me.

Purple Rain

He sauntered out onto stage
Small but fierce
His guitar
on fire
thunder rolled from his fingertips
the world suddenly
being carried away
in his purple storm
and we all wanted
to drink
his sweet tonic,
and man he knew how
to grind,
he was a purple mystery
changing his name,
but never his style
he was always true to himself
and the power of purple
he was magnificent,
full of passion
and life
his guitar was part of him
his expressive organ
that could moan, scream, cry and
leave us weeping for more,
we all wanted to drown in his
purple rain,
drive off in that little
red corvette,
be the girl who wore
the raspberry beret,
his lover his friend,

his passing took us all
by surprise,
such a shock to the
color spectrum,
how could we go on without
his purple rain (reign)?

everywhere,
around the world,
doves were crying

Word from Prince's kingdom of Minnesota; congrats Calamity and diamonddave, and thanks Mrs. Rocky.  And everyone that contributed, the North Star State thanks you.  I read the contributions to my poetry group, and they were impressed by all.
