It was a lot of fun, especially after I got past the heart racing and hand shaking lol

The two poems I read:
Destination Don't Care
View From the Passenger Seat


I really enjoyed everyone's readings. Thanks for doing these, Missy.

Penblwydd Hapus My Love & Other Things

The world will one day fade
Skies be packed away
Assembled in some other universe.
The last bell will clink off a cliff;
Chime (kneeled) knell in cup of sea.
On oak shelves
Libraries will borrow time
From a circle of trees.
In the beginning was all things wood.

It was silence, mountain rain
Siren song timbres, poetry
Which brought us here.
Point on the horizon, so distance
Fathomed unimaginable, until
The sun cut through the ocean.
We sail our ship o’er dry land.

Love wears jewels
Over its wounds
Sea is frozen
Yet we dive for diamonds.
Fading, eternal/eventide light
Where the sun finds them,
Cornered fields are alluring
As cinema aisles,
Like Hepburn -
In a silent black and white movie.

There are buried trinkets
In thickets of forests.
Shake the branches
See our names
Written on gold blade.


Painting. Adrian Henri

Desert Dragon

some people call him ‘the monster’ yeah
some call him the gangster of love
some people call him Heloderm

cause he reeks
of the pompatus
of love

awesome living fossil
been around since the Miocene
too old to rock and roll too young to die

he’s a true stud
underground rock star
orange and black skin like beaded leather

some people call him Heloderm

if you see him
you’re one of the lucky few
mostly subterranean fellow

generally pretty mellow not a lot of flash
but a trunk full of cool
he’s not that fast and not real lean

some people call him ‘the monster’ yeah

sniffs the air with his snakelike tongue
if he’s hungry and he’s got your scent
he’ll track you to the ends of the earth

Gila Monster meanest hunk of lizard
that anybody’s ever seen
down in the mojave


some call him the gangster of love

Desert Dragon


Why do I judge my day by how much I have “accomplished?”
When I get to where I can enjoy just lying on the rug picking up lint balls I will no longer be too ambitious.
I’m holding this cat in my arms so it can sleep, and what more is there.

Do you only read, famous and other poets not your own? And how does the set up work if you read? That I would need I mean?

You can read your own writings, other DUP poets’ writings with their permission, or other writers if you credit them. Some people just lurk for awhile until they feel comfortable enough to read.
