All these poems.
By the third day I’m already behind.
I don’t know what I expected. This
is my first Literary Orgy.
I click on lexpomo and enter
a world of mostly bared souls;
drunk on love or anger and
everything in between. A few
clothed in politeness, dipping in a toe
to check the temperature while
others gleefully piss in the pool.
All this naked self-expression and
they keep coming faster than I can
thoughtfully read them: a cornucopia
of quickies. Is it a coincidence that
to these aging eyes lexpomo
sometimes looks like lexporno?
It’s all fun and games til someone
loses an eye for a metaphor.
Whatever other punctuation I need,
I could use a refractory period.
