A Basket Full of People

Shyloh is a woman who brought me to Zen Filter. She inspired me with her poem Cashmere Mist, so I wrote this as a result of her provocation:


cotton wool, caught in guilt,
wearing only simple silk,
painted with a spendthrift air,
have it all, steal the flair!

folding suits of double-breast,
with the finest rubenesque,
body slipping in and out,
of the thing you choose to tout,

Taking off the sooty parts,
cleaning off the dirty marks,
hoping that my gullish groom,
won't upset the whole damn room,

spank my face with aftershave,
make me talk, make me rave,
try me on a certain charm,
one I hope can do some harm,

loosen up my choking tie,
tell me such a pretty lie,
I saw you check my shiney watch,
I want to fit inside your notch,

when you feel a little down,
step it up! wear a gown,
throw away your used up garments,
find yourself a new apartment,

buried deeply in a sash,
hiding out, short of cash,
suffocating droopy drapes,
seems so hard, finding mates,

snugly fitting corduroy,
awkward sitting lonely boy,
scuffy ugly stupid shoes,
feel like I am just confused,

lacking pockets for the asking,
sunlight stopped its happy basking,
short of love, torn in trust,
grab yourself, feel the gust,

on my knee, found your lint,
gave me such a saddened tint,
of my life, turned to rags,
of your youth, turned a hag,

cannot bear to mend this mess,
I miss you more without your dress,
sewed up secrets, yesterday,
what face should I put on today?
