TI COCO’S GROOVE

I hear the end of the world is coming
But you and I won’t fade away
I bought us bosa nova dreams
they fell from our blazing skies
Our kiss creates a kombit mixtape
Somatic beats are earphones plugged to my belly
you touch the right spot with a black finger
Made for the bedroom
I become blue with desire

I hear the end of the world is coming
We’re not the ones they’re after
Our out of body prints they grab without asking
We hide in our tin roof sniffing shadows, crickets and rain
My legs hear your name, stretch out wide
Pretend we are invisible while I smile wider
Ti Coco is lush
Gives you 3 seconds of silence
You admire her gaze
It turns you blue

Got this from Vesper…and was tempted to fill out the blanks

Fill in the blanks to each of these statements - it’s as simple as that! These don’t have to be one-word responses. Use as few or as many words as you need to fill each blank, in order to tell your story.

1. I HAVE NEVER WANTED TO SEEK material things; but I’ve always thought I might like to have enough to feed the many children in Haiti who are starving and dieing each day. I wish somehow my writing can help them.

2. WHEN I WAS 8 years old, I BELIEVED God gave me a wonderful purpose in life and it had nothing to do with playing with Ken and Barbie dolls, lol. I’m still writing, that’s the main purpose.

3. IF I WAS MY OWN BEST FRIEND, WHAT I WOULD ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT SPENDING TIME WITH ME would be the play of words I find in writing poetry and the different dishes I try out in the kitchen; while what I’d find the most irritating would be the constant rejections from agents about my manuscripts. Forty so far and 20 more to go, YEAH!

4. IF THE STORY OF MY LIFE UP TO THIS POINT WAS BEING PUBLISHED TOMORROW, IT WOULD BE TITLED: Island Sundressing and it would be dedicated to my daughter, sister, brother and bloggers. Delaleu's memoire about love, life and hope.

5. WHEN MY TIME ON EARTH IS OVER, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVED ME ARE REMEMBERING ME, IT WOULD PLEASE ME IF THEY SAID she was passionate, dedicated, generous and funny. She loved life and loved to be loved by others.

I'm curious to read other bloggers response to these questions, I have no idea how to tag so if you're willing to show me i'll be glad to hit your page.

Is it just me, or do I like the way you used the color blue?

I become blue with desire...

...It turns you blue

Great stuff, as usual.

love the poem-esp blue with desire

1. I HAVE NEVER WANTED TO SEEK men??? I don't know-I've wanted everything at one time or another.

2. WHEN I WAS 8 years old, I BELIEVED my family was actually functioning like it was supossed to.

3. IF I WAS MY OWN BEST FRIEND, WHAT I WOULD ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT SPENDING TIME WITH ME was making myself laugh and perhaps a video game or too, Oh and Chess-I would love to play chess against myself

4. IF THE STORY OF MY LIFE UP TO THIS POINT WAS BEING PUBLISHED TOMORROW, IT WOULD BE TITLED: Been through so much for his age

5. WHEN MY TIME ON EARTH IS OVER, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVED ME ARE REMEMBERING ME, IT WOULD PLEASE ME IF THEY SAID anything. I hope someone cares and loves me to begin with. What they actually say isn't important
