You’re Easy you can’t see me as you read this but I am kissing you it won’t late long just a quick pressing of lips maybe if you are bold a slip of the tongue you may never see me you may only see these words on the page it doesn’t matter who wrote this poem just to give you this sweetest of kisses so relish this moment of someone kissing you exactly the way you like to be kissed does it make you uncomfortable can words cause you sexual anxiety erode your self confidence as it becomes clear that I’m the same sex as you tricking you to engage in this kiss because when you started to read this is not what you expected – is it and now I’ve made you uneasy or maybe merely impatient with how foolish this piece is to think it can involve the reader at such a level now my hands move they aren’t resting casually on your arm there is a pressure of pleasure as I feel your body as you move closer to me you sense that I’m aroused by you you are responding more than you expected you can stop me by closing the page you can change the direction by changing my sex or yours perhaps that works for a moment but you know we are a same sex couple now about engage in more than a kiss one of us unbuttons unzips the other does it matter who you’ve never done anything like this before or claim to have never done anything like this before where as I have done it many times when anyone reads this they have sex with me I’m easy I make only one demand that you finish what you start
the lonely heater
I guess this would be considered meta-poetry – a piece that is about itself & how the reader in unwittingly involved in it as it unfolds. I’m not fond of poetry about poetry or which uses poetry as an image – she walked like poem – that sort of thing. I wanted to somehow involve the reader/listener in a visceral way without resorting to colours, tastes etc but with direct concrete actions. I also wanted to make ‘you’ question the nature of what sex involves. How much of a participant are you even when not directly touched.
the lonely sock
Once again the pacing of the actions is important – to start of with something simple, innocent like that casual kiss and let it build to increasingly intimate actions, that even though they unfold verbally also unfold mentally so that the listener/reader finds themselves visualizing what is happen between them and me.
the lonely bow
This isn’t a piece I’ve ever performed though. As much as I like the way it works I also feel that is a violation of the listener/reader who gets drawn into a sex act they are unwilling to participate in but have no way of avoiding – meta-rape.
