Poem: The Poetic Love Story of a Goth

Selected Verses:GothLongHair

Gothic Jill

…Distress my senses
with your porcelain skin,
detailed with shadows of black lipstick
and tar-lined eyes…

 

…The contrast of pale and darkness
flirts your noble depravity.
Princess of Darkness:
arouse my spirit
drape me in jet-black hair
darken my soul at dusk.

Poem: Grandfather

Selected Verses:

The old black man downed a shot of Don Q.
The light-skinned grandson entered the bar.

~ ~ ~

The old black man downed a shot of Bacardí.
“Hail Mary, mother of God, full of grace!”

~ ~ ~

The grandfather kissed his grandson’s cheek
and grazed him with a beard of age and sandpaper.
God bless Don Q and Bacardí rums.
