Anyone write poetry?

Or have any favourites? I’m looking for nice arch flowery shit that people throw onto a wordpress site or something. Just looking for nice stuff to explore or be inspired by. I have a vague memory of someone on here once linking to their site, which was good. Hit me up with some links pls!

I’ve no writing talent. I like some Sylvia Plath and Stevie Smith.

(Rudyard Kipling can fuck off.)

My life is poetry

Love is like a bottle of gin but a bottle of gin is not like love.

Of course, one is liquid, the other provokes liquid.

I once wrote this poem about a day in the life of Mark McKinley:

The adjudicator sighed
and pressed the button to start the stopwatch
it was a dull routine
another day another pillock trying to eat four dry crackers in a minute
his mind wandered with thoughts of genuine records
a 100 metre sprint in 8 seconds
the longest fingernails ever seen

but no

it was crackers again

but suddenly
his thoughts were interrupted with the sound of jubilance

a fourth cracker!

at last!

a fourth cracker!

but wait

the stopwatch read 01:24…
the adjudicator had taken his eye off the ball
and now had a decision to make
his reputation
or the reputation of the Guinness Book of Records

there could only be one winner here…

The Carnivore’s Lament

Dark poo
In the loo
Is it true
You once moo

this video + The Streets was why I got in to spoken word

and I did the music for most of these for a woman i met at a spoken word night

Decided I wanted to get into writing non-instrumental songs and wrote that last night. It rhymes and shit. I realised after I wrote it that the melody is too similar to Moby’s “why does my heart feel so bad” though so I gotta rework it. Or ask Moby if he’s arsed.
