    the FORUM is…

    the FORUM is the body of a woman
    where stars and street-lamps war for night.
    a cauldron of asphalt glass rubber where money is heart ovary semen vein
    the FORUM a host living off her leeches where ghost fumes lay in ambush
    and anger is
    a legacy alive in her skin

    the FORUM is a body of a women
    who pimps her poets in the dim lights of projects,
    spray-paints her artists on crumbling walls
    I have seen loneliness languishing in
    caverns of poetry's neon,
    where her dreams for poetry live,
    rape, torture die and live again.

    the FORUM is the body of a woman a body
    yelling get your flow on!!!
    while transformation forms in the fallow of grease and sweat.
    her A body tattooed with henna and hell.
    Where men and women stumble into bitter memory
    and beg the comfort of quarters
    where unkindness is contraband
    held soft and trembling to the swollen lips of rage.

    the FORUM is the head-phoned body of a woman bobbing in subways
    to 4/4 oblivion in whose body heroin
    is a rider-less horse whinnying beneath the windows of fetuses
    in whose body night is stalk and hyena spit laughing alley
    and dark corridors of snoring nightmares mumbling dark fugues of ache
    and awe

    whose body is muse and murder the FORUM is refrain of suicide
    seeking salvation in voice chat's pulpit
    and tambourine while god is scripture moaning in the beds of sinners.

    the FORUM is the body of a woman whose water is always breaking
    giving birth to us all...

    .thank u destee for having the vision to build this FORUM

    My Dear Brother/Prophet:
    I cried for my late mother " Sister Dorothy Louise Morris" as I heard this.....

    Today I thank God for allowing your inspiration to touch my soul. Thank You.
    Peace, Power, and Prosperity.....

    ...I'm so lost in your gift
    I hope I'm never found...
    in deprivation or wanting
    for this wonderful thing
    that is your flow...
    because too much of a good
    thing can be wonderful...
    and I'm having so much fun...
    shoo...I think I'm in :hearts2:

    ok...ok...let me re-focus on this piece, lol...:coffee:

    this was without question a flow that screams...

    "Metaphorical Genius"


    Hold still...I need to place some kisses all over
    that Brilliant poetic mind of yours... :spinstar:

    Raising the bar with you...

    I can't give enough praise to this piece, so let me simply say the Forum is blessed to have the talent of one who can use metaphors so thoroughly. Your pen must have been spent after this one. Flow on.
