A bomb Ass Poem

by Gilly Wigley

All I want to do is write a bomb ass poem
one that flows and grows with prose
or like those slam poets who throw rhymes like dimes in a fountain
there's plenty more where that came from.

They spit slick verbiage through their teeth
slipping it in to conversation so casually
it knocks unsuspecting citizens off their feet.
I want to blow your brains over with literary beats
the kind that brings you to your feet
or at least makes you throw your hands up in awe.

All I want to do is write a bomb ass poem
so dope it floats like Pan's boat in midair
hovering under your nose till it slaps you in the face
words pooling onto your lips
dripping down from the tip of your nose
you lick your lips for the flavor of fresh ripe lyricism tastes sweet upon your tongue.

All I want to do is write a bomb ass poem
so powerful it pierces you in the gut with linguistic shrapnel
knocking breath from your lungs
leaving you gasping for air
drowning verse after verse after verse
dragging you away in a verbal hearse
laying you down to rest in poetic peace.

Well, then you need to write Howl. But its been done. Still, I like this. Nice job.

I completely enjoyed this! I too wanna write a bomb ass poem. Actually, right now I'd be happy to write just any old poem. But I'm wishing I'd written this one.
