Seducer poem

I’ve put a “flash” (as in written really fast, minimal editing) poem – Medusa Medusa at the Undead Poets Society site. I couldn’t help riffing on the same ideas and cadence and have just “flashed” this one up too. I guess it’s kind of related to the UDPS one …

Sensual Medusa
would you accuse her
or bind her and braid her?
Could you mislay her
misplace her
disgrace

your well hidden
eyes,
mirrored, uncertain
uncoiling her lies
succumb to her treasure
between glistening lights
then
slice off her head
to put her to bed

These are both pretty loose and rough. Perhaps one day I’ll pull the pair apart and make something more worthy from the broken remains of both. So much writing to do …

    I don’t know, but I think it’s pretty damn good. Sometimes writing fast and raw pays off. “Between glistening lights” is the only line that gives pause to me.

    I like this. It is bolder than your UDP poem (which I love love loved), I was unsure of what the glistening lights were but based on the discussion, I’ve figured it out. 😉
