    I thought you were the protege, MarkC? Are you speaking from experience here, or have you been reading Men's Health Q&A again?

    btw....as long as 2 people are fully in control....who cares what gets ripped or by whom? Smooth is as smooth does, honey! :wink:

    As long as poetry has been called...

    Do any of you play with those magnetic poetry kits? I like them, because I often find that being restricted often fuels my creativity. The limited word choice can be interesting, as well as having them there in front of your face to choose from.

    Here a few of mine.

    An old kiss
    And a naked eye
    I always
    remember
    why

    sail away sister
    the magic dies tonight
    in the belly of the fire god

    her translucent laugh lingers
    haunting me
    a ghost of the questions
    never asked

    you – me
    you – me
    you – we
    were

    the porcelain angel
    cuts her circles
    in the broken ice


    And a longer one not involving the kit:

    The Hand

    I wander the mist
    of what is between
    as I strain to glimpse
    that which is unseen

    the path before me
    is narrow and tight
    the air is thick
    I carry no light

    ghosts hover and dance
    deep in that strange mist
    shapes that frolic so
    and cavort and twist

    and a sound I hear
    from out of the gloom
    voices of laughter
    of mirth and my doom

    "What, ho!" I let shout
    "would you have me for?"
    and then ... silence
    for they sing no more

    no weapon on hand
    and no charm nor spell
    helpless against them
    if they nay meant well

    a sheen to my side
    brighter than the rest
    takes form of a man
    in his courtly best

    from behind his mask
    he spies with one eye
    the other is dead
    shriveled and dry

    he offers his hand
    clad crimson and white
    and all I can do
    is nay run in fright

    "A good draw, my friend."
    he says with a grin
    "With me at your hand,
    you are sure to win."

    and with that he does step
    right off of the path
    I follow meekly
    for I fear his wrath

    as the howls come
    followed by their hosts
    the knight does reply
    with jabs and boasts

    his arm sweeps a pass
    through the forming hoard
    leaving behind naught
    but his gleaming sword

    then out of the dark
    steps the knight's own twin
    not trimmed in scarlet
    but obsidian

    they clash with a roar
    with thunder, with steel
    neither can gain ground
    in this even deal

    "Low or high this hand,
    I need you in play!"
    the red knight did shout
    as I saw him sway.

    with courage unbidden
    I leapt to his side
    empty hands at best
    bards could sing, "He tried..."

    but the ruse paid well
    as the twin did shift
    he dubbed me a threat
    let his swordpoint drift

    before I can blink
    the dark twin falls dead
    the white of his cloth
    turning a bright red

    the knight points his sword
    to a trail yonder
    "Now take this way home.
    Don't pause to ponder."

    only a short jaunt
    and now I am free
    and see my dear home
    standing before me

    as I splash my face
    beside a cool stream
    I begin to doubt
    was it naught but dream?

    my eyes are drawn down
    cards tucked in my belt
    the Jack and the Ace
    the hand I was dealt
