poetry tumblr: GRAMMATOLATRY

What did I mean that during parties I choose the sofa // like a sick cat? That when tattoos are dispensed I’m first / in line? That books full of other people’s misery // make the beach infinitely more pleasant? Stargazing is another weakness. / Too much I examine the patch of dirt where nothing grows // where buried curiosa aren’t deep enough, though in Short Answer / I’m all for dancing alone in a silken robe. Friends call. // Mostly the machine answers. Mozart makes me cry. / I kill spiders without guilt.

I don’t remember the words of men that talk
I don’t remember the words of men who have led me
From beach to bed
I don’t remember
The talk of men, their bitter talk
I don’t remember the bitter lemons that have left
The talk of men
I don’t remember the bitter lemons
I don’t remember
The yellow rinds that have left my mouth
And gone to yours
I don’t remember the bitter lemons
I don’t remember the talk, the talk of men
Talk is wet
After all
Talk is wet and washes away thus forth
Talk is wet and it washes away
From my mouth into yours
And talk is wet and we are wet too
Talk is wet
I don’t remember the bitter lemons
Dorothea Lasky, I Don’t Remember the Talk of Men
