    projection
    is a fishbone in your throat
    with no bread to dislodge
    the pain and suffering
    no sparkling brook over
    slime covered stones to
    listen to serenity...

    you hit me with that phrase
    when I wasn't looking
    suckered punched me
    when I was sitting in my corner
    ready to through in the towel
    before the fight...cause I'm no
    fighter, but, I can "debate" pretty ****
    good

    projection is a "matriarchalintercourser"
    (or motherphucker for the challenged)
    that thing can have you look at someone and
    see yourself / all your ways your insecurities
    your...pain
    vandalize someone else with your
    introspective bruises

    I don't know why you got so upset
    had the belly of Mount St. Helen nauseated
    we were only "debating"...
    and you wonder why I cheat on you so
    much with my pen, why I hold her more than you
    ...you told me...

    "Don't phuckin' touch me"

    ...........................................silence...

    you shanked me as I stood in the
    yard talking to freedom......your vile tongue
    I've learned needs to be on death row...

    you wonder why I stand before you
    not being able to speak / nothing but a mist
    of misery leaving my mouth where Love just
    took the last train to find an oak tree
    to be hung

    .............................................silence...

    "Don't Fhuckin' touch me"

    you do have a way with words
    I am amazed at how you can impale
    my fingertips with those words
    as if they are the ten that dropped the
    dime on whose hands no longer
    recognizes a loved one

    projection is a trip...have you
    looked at your hands?

    where once resided and old wise woman
    now resides an adolescent ignorant
    cold thirty something "child"
    where I once saw angels
    wake up in your palms
    I now see stripped empty beds
    only the frames remain
    where once children used to play
    hopscotch and double dutch...
    yellow crime scene tape now outlines
    your lifelines...
    where I once swore I saw the
    burning bush emanate from your supple
    touch I now see cotton fields full
    of dead slaves....

    and you castrate me your four word sword
    I wish my headstone had a beginning and ending
    date...because I hate choking on discarded
    feelings...

    Don't ****yng touch you?...I won't...
    you have cut off the hands that loved you.

    OOOOOOOHHHHHHH.....

    WHILST READING TO YOUR POETIC TOME...
    I WAS LISTENING TO A SONG ENTITLED "FOREVER IS A LONG, LONG TIME"...AND IT DAWNED ON ME THAT ALTHOUGH I HAD HEARD THAT VERY SAME PHRASE..IN MANY A CONTEXT..IT HAD ALWAYS CUT LIKE A DRUNKEN SURGEON WITH A DULL SCAPEL DURING A CIRCUMCISION! KNOWING THIS..I PRAY THAT I NEVER
    UTTER THOSE 4 WORDS TO ANYONE IN ANY CONTEXT..WHATSOEVER! ALTHOUGH..IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT MISERY LOVES COMPANY...I WOULDN'T KNOW HOW TO CONTEND WITH MYSELF IT I EVER CAUSED SOMEONE PAIN OF THAT MAGNITUDE!! IT'S TOO BAD THAT NOT EVERYONE CAN FEEL THAT WAY!!! MASTERFULLY WRITTEN..SIR...IT STRUCK A CHORD SOMEWHERE DEEP WITHIN ME. OH AND BY THE WAY.....I TOO HAVE CHEATED...WITH THE PEN...MORE TIMES THAN I CARE TO REMEMBER!! BUT..IF THE RESULTS CAN BE ANYWHERE NEAR LIKE
    WHAT YOU'VE WRITTEN..I THINK THAT I SHALL CHEAT SOME MORE!!!!!
