Beatnik Poetry Slam – Control


Today’s Music: Sonny and Cher – The Beat Goes On
Days Til Spring: 66

Dark stage, single pinpoint spot, slowly widening…
You could have my heart
*snap*
If you hadn’t taken it already
*snap snap*
You can walk my path
*clap clap*
straight, true and steady
*snap*
You can take all I own
*swirls drink*
word and song
*puts on Ray Bans*
If it feels so right
*soft whistle*
it can’t be wrong
*adjusts beret*
Do what you do
*long exhale*
in any shape form or kind
*cigarette drag*
but I just have to tell you,
*steely glare*
the remote control is MINE.

Fade
Dig it.

Yeah man...

  3. Hi,
    I do remember this “era”. What I remember, and will always remember is this guy that I met, to cut a long story short, on our 1st date, he took me to a weird looking place a bit dark inside, and yes it all began, the words, the finger snapping, and I thought to myself, what on earth am I doing here. 😆

    Loved your beatnik poetry, and of course it would not be right with out the “snap”. 😀

  7. Awesome! But, everybody knows the remote control always belongs to the woman-she will just let you think it is yours.

    • I let her think that I’m thinking that she thinks that I only think that it’s mine.

  20. Way cool man. ;). I could see it so perfectly. You need a Starbucks to perform it in.

    • Starbucks is a capitalist hegemony set up to perpetuate the yoke of The Man around our necks, life is a bowl of kibble.

  26. You will now forever appear as Mike Myers’ Charlie Mackenzie (So I Married an Axe Murderer) in my mind …

    Harriet, Harri … et.
    Hard-hearted harbinger of haggis
    Beautiful, bemused, bellicose butcher
    Untrusting, Unknowing, Unlove … ed
    He wants you back he screams into the night air
    Like a fireman going into a window that has no fire
    Except the passion of his heart
    I am lonely. It’s really hard.
    This poem … sucks?

    Yeah, it’s only funny if you’ve seen the movie. Hope you have. 🙂

    • Hah – makes me wonder how much of that (especially the end of the movie when he does it on stage) was in the back of my head. Next one was already scheduled to have a drummer written in.
      You always have the movie refs ready, ODNT!

  27. Ha! It’s like I could smell the smoke and hear the ice clinking in your glass. *snap*

    My husband is master of the remote. I get too stressed out. It’s one of those fancy, over-complicated kinds. I just can’t handle it :).
