poem of the day 02.25.15 NOW NSFW

the walls at the high school dance

the walls at the high school dance
were always humid and sticky

old gym walls embedded with the sweat
of a thousand basketball games and dodgeball

but i clung to those walls at every dance
they were my only refuge from a sea of hormones

the clique of a hundred teenagers
who would not let me into their set

from the walls at the high school dance
i watched girls that i’d been pining for
make out with lesser men

low-browed philistines who couldn’t
talk their way out of a lunch line

they looked so hungry for each other
during those slow songs

star-crossed lovers with chapped lips
forcefully separated by christian brother chaperons

waiting for the hand of god to leave
and go bother another indulgent coupling

before diving into each other again

christ, how i wanted to be one
of those boys kissing one of those girls

on an autumn friday night in america

instead of being suck against
the walls at the high school dance

wishing that i’d just stayed home.

****have some poems over at Ben John Smith's Legendary Horror Sleaze Trash. It came to my attention that corporate bully boys over at Google have changed their policites in regards to adult content. While giving a platform for writer bums such as myself, a site like Horror Sleaze Trash is being threatened with being block/deleted simply bc they have pictures such as these on their site:


but it's not just the pictures. according to the link i provided above.  the new rules also apply to:
"Blogger blogs marked as "adult" include LGBT and "outsider sexuality" diaries, erotic writers, transgender activists, romance book editors and reviewers, sex toy reviewers, art nude photographers, film-makers, artists such as painters and comic illustrators, text-only fiction writers, sex news and porn gossip writers, LGBT sex activism, sex education and information outlets, fetish fashion, feminist porn blogs, and much, much more."

 WineDrunk SideWalk itself has been blocked on numerous occasions from public libraries and other institutions. This is insane. This is what happens when upstarts become coporate back, become corporations in and of themselves.  it ends up hurting a lot of small folks out there putting art/porn/activisim into the world.  The final result is a bland world of corporate music, corporate literature, and yes, even corporate porn:

happy searching.
