Praise drunk on itself

I love your words
As they frantically jitterbug
Across my somber attention
Dancing horses on point
Fooling around with my
Chalk and white board markers

A grown woman in her my little pony hair
Showing she can count
And neigh for hunters at
A proactive road kill dinner
Stalking the drunkenness and porn
Hate/love testosterone

To tell on her life
As we mad laughing live it

Again the sounds of Mile Davis, or is it Charles Mingus, dance from your words.

'Dancing horses on point
Fooling around with my
Chalk and white board markers'

There seems to be a knowing, grown mans perspective at play here. As if you, the observer, are taking notes on some flighty, young thing who just oozzes life.

Spot on CJ! Miles and sometimes some mellow Brubeck, Mingus is great too! The young woman is a talented poetess Named Rebecca Loudon. Her blog just had a birthday! Check her out, she's really quite good!
