Mother Poetry

A vamp with one too many
syllables choked out bulging
eyeballs blind to the implication
of art in words free for the thinking
men lured by women undressed
from emotions left staring
at children hungry with bloated stomachs
crying for a mother’s love….
and she has none.

You always give me a whole new way of looking at things Robert. I like someone who makes me think.   Well done.

An awesome poem.  Very "deep".

I've not been reading your work long, but to my mind, ya never LOST it! This one is powerful in its imagery, maintaining that sense of discomfiture that your work often houses...that "edge." Good writing, Robert.

Robert,
   This is the first piece of your work I have read, I am looking forward to more. It is very tightly woven which makes it especially easy to digest. Thanks.

Oh I love this style of poem..one where the immediate meaning is sometimes unclear and it requires re-reading several times ...it's like you slowly peel back the layers exposing the poems core....food for the mind

Just wish I could write this stuff..but i've tried and I can't seem to make it work  

Ahh well..I'll just have to content myself with my sweet sappy stuff and read yours to satisfy that niggle!

Thanks David and Tess I look forward to reading your poetry also!!

To each his own Tess....is what I have always heard. I tried other poetry..... I mean styles and it is like work..... I have a job already...I don't need two. So, I make it fun, poetry that is.......it should be fun!!
