nothings #9

For a while I was an angel’s confidante. It took time for me to undress names like angel-slut. Peel truth from jealous lie. Choose the side I winged for. I did it though it was forespoken. Like the end.

Now and everynow, I come to you, beloved. I wear nothing.

Now and everynow. I bare only you.

    I am so glad that you refound my blog so that I could find yours, you are fantastic! This piece strikes me as profound and playful, not exactly an easy feat.


    what a joy to find your comment, lunatique! i’m glad you saw the playfulness of this too … ’tis a bit of a tease here and there, eh? thank you!

    I like these little fragments. This one is strangely charged and I love the way it leads to its conclusion. Not that I really ‘get’ it. But that’s part of the fun. Everytime I read it I see something different. Yesterday it seemed bold and almost joyous, today lamenting and melancholy. It really triggers a great mixture of emotions.


    i’m so glad you like these fragments, Ario. I envisage them as bits and pieces found in a squirrel-chewed notebook while clearing out the attic … you know? maybe a little fascinating, sometimes mundane, but all jumbled up in puzzling shades …

    i’m delighted this one behaves as i hoped it would – mood shimmery … yayyyy! muse took charge totally, said it was all about her … sent me out to the garden to play, she did … but pssst .. it isn’t all about her, it’s my attic too … *heh

    i’m glad you like this .. sometimes it seems ok, othertimes it seems a soppy mess, but i’m a nightmare of a self-critic *grin … thank you, Jo .. for your visit and your approval …

    This is too intimidatingly wonderful to say anything but read again and again, so rich and somehow seductive and powerful,


    oh goodness, that word again .. hmmm .. now i’ve gone shy … it isn’t often i offer something so brazenly intimate … i’m fullmoonhappy that it moved you so, Paul .. thank you …
