old fashioned words in newfangled ways

by David R Spellman

oh man and how
I wish I could just
senseless and wishy
washing stuff like
reverbs from my
bulging cheeks
letting you cackle
on as if there
was something
there you were
bringing me noodles
and oodles cooked
no more or
less is best than
when the pan fried
saving the juices
letting them ooze
all over me
melted as if
butter couldn't run
until you set it free

Yes, words? they mean what we mean them to mean as writers. Readers mean them based on their word experience and associations. This word play rather word usage of yours is meaningful. Its meaningfully playful.

I like the way this one runs, Dave. Nonsensical yet descriptive in light-heartedness. Love that finish, too. Turn the heat up! Pe4ce...

I like how each neat combo of words can stand on its own as a poem, and in how their combining lead up to a remarkable sensual message.
