Fire

Post by elazar » Tue Aug 27, 2019 12:51 am

I feel like this ember is patient enough
allowing me to do all kinds of stuff
drag my feet and twiddle my thumbs
pile shit high and gather small crumbs
leaning into the wind I barely stayed standing
my spirit was thin and very demanding
I calculated the days and put off the event
but it was due like my monthly rent
the ember caught wind and burst into flame
done with days of shyly stuttering it's name
it engulfed the corpse that wandered the roads
turned it into a dragon breathing fire through its nose
passionately climbing out of it's disguise
heat spread through and temperatures rise
when steadily it balanced into a form
leading multiplied flames into a swarm
I barely survived the ember's hibernation
that nearly reversed it's purpose of creation
now it's almost the hour of 6 o'clock
heaving flames are ready to rock
to consume the left over stagnant carbon
cease speaking in an apologetic jargon
hungry energy to grow and expand
lighting up the night heating up the land
breathe deep and live

6 o’clock in the evening or morning?

Stop pretending you know things that you do not know. I am not elazar and the answer to my question interests me.
For future reference there has been only one time that I have ever posted anything under a contrived name and that time I posted “ hello” and that was enough for me.

Fascinating, it had never occured to me that you were elezar. However, your rather frantic denial leads me know to consider the possibility

Bob

* update - I thought about this identity issue for some 10 seconds, but then I fell asleep. There really is a limit to the excitement I can take. And this same "Jack" has now confessed that he used a fake name, address, passport, and driving licence in order to say "hello" on a Leonard Cohen forum. Wow, that is so intense and rebellious.

Later this year I will write a wonderful poem about that adventure that Jack had.

still Bob but with different spelling. As you can see I deliberately swapped the Bs around.

For Bob or boB

with a sideways glance
he's mischief personified
and here for so long...

As for Sue, 'If you see her say hello' ;-)

don't you start with "hello", you sound like that new guy here who confesses to saying that UNDER A FALSE NAME!!!! I am pretty sure I have tracked him down on the link below, particularly at 2.00
