Re: Poems as Gif's Raven Russell

A letter of disdain I wrote to all of my friend's at the time. All of the people who went from country sweetness into city sours. You may have to download to read it correctly with a magnifying look. I can't post it on Facebook, as it was a bone of contention for a lot of people at the time and now....

Poems as Gif's Raven Russell

Some older poems of mine, found on an old photobucket account. Raven Russell was not my moniker back then.

Re: Two Poems Read Aloud by Raven Russell

"Pockets Full of Stones, In an Ever Deepening Lake" In baskets, woven wombs of gourds. An open wound of swords. Embryonic conception of platonic inception. The barely brewed, stale baked grains. The service badge worn by a cowardly lion. His mane is full of fuel and fire. His eyes set in f...

Re: "Fear of Succesful People"

I like this a lot. We get to redefine success to reflect what we actually desire, rather than the image of success that is presented to us, ever out of reach, keeping us dissatisfied with our lives. Be careful who and what you idolize or you may meet the same demise. So True. I needn't write more t...

A poem about Rehab

A poem about Chemical Dependency Treatment. "When in Rome, Fall Like the Romans" In the reckless disregard of social conventions, a stalwart submarine captain pilots cloudy come-ons. In the steamy afterglow of a horny half-life, we watched our failures bail the cascading waters from the sc...

"...Stout" I hold my passion up for firesale. Buyers, nefarious and unruly, circle the stacked tables. A loaf of my wailing abilities. Tryers and the need to be cool, Wait for the cheapened bake sale. I abhor the shoppers last bids. My prices becoming bulk deals. Feeling the plummet. Abacu...

some great stuff here, I love the different perspectives. A disorderd man calls to order, but there are no orders here. Suggestions hammered to crawling walls, next to stigmata laden crosses.

"The Message Bings" Dimpled to your bosom, your chest will smile, agape jaws simmering. The heat of laughter, worn like sensual fingertip hellos. You wrote that through my tickled phone skin. We crawl from the mud, of past faulted and failed romance. Taunted and tainted recollections of he...
