King Kong Trolls

Hi! This year (2022), I've decided to share a poem on my blog and podcast and read it aloud. It's all a part of my quest to be brave and apparently the things that I'm scared about still include: My spoken voiceMy raw poems. Thanks for being here with me and cheering me on, and I hope that you can become braver this year, too! King Kong Trolls The self-appointed writer-guru on Substack with four- thousand devotees to his biweekly missives has decided there are no more geniuses, really, not any more. Someone needs to tell him that he just doesn’t know where to look. The geniuses aren’t banging their chests, King-Kong like in their glory despite being ground dwellers, telling the world, “Look at me! Look at me as I roar and pontificate.” They are the discarded, dreaming, creating, thinking outside the main streams of plagiarized discourse, unnoticed beneath the giant feet of oversized apes capturing all the attention as our culture dangles from their plump, hairy digits.

Imprinted

Imprinted The tight curls on her lover’s neck? Lord studied them. Made litanies to survive. Whitman, of course, sang of electric bodies and armies he loved, of girth. Chen Chen focused on ice cream Connoisseurs, jigglypuffys and wigglytuffs. Donika Kelly spoke of small animals Knowing thresholds of each other, meeting. Meeting at those thresholds Litanies of survival Bodies electric and connoisseurs. And me? I stare at a blank page and have no language; I stare at a blank life and wonder. We are still “imprinted with fear,” Aren’t we? Refugees of our own selves, Starving for bronze plaques and sonnets With those measured line and expected beats Telling us it is safe: it is safe, come in.
