Beatnik Poetry Slam – Rise Inside


Today’s Music: Ben Webster – Solitude

If he was La Guapa, El Guapo would look like this. But with a goatee.

If he was La Guapa, El Guapo would look like this.
But with a goatee.


The swirl of steam escapes the triple espressos,mingling with the wisps of smoke from lavender cigarettes, the waves parting as El Guapo saunters to the stage of the dimly lit room. His black felt beret matching his black wool suit matching his (mostly) black goatee matching his black Ray Ban sungla-
*thud*
El Guapo turns his tripping into a smooth “I meant to do that” hop and twirl, removing his sunglasses and hopping on stage.
He nods to Sufjiannan Eisenberg on the electric glockenspiel, and takes his place in front of the mic.
A pinpoint spotlight lifts him out of the dark, slowly expanding to illuminate his presence on the stage…

I thrust in my arm as you close around me.
You clench.
I clench.
*plink*
You open, parting with a whisper as you swallow me whole.
Gently, I press against your button.
*plooonk*
You sigh, then rush
With me
Inside
You
*pling plink*
Faster…faster..faster.fasterfaster
*plinkink*
Higher…higher..higher.higherhigher
*PLUNGGGGG*
Together we ride
Up.
Up.
I feel it coming…
*plingplingPLONGplunk*
There it is-
DING!!!
*pling*
You shudder, then come
To
A
Halt.

I step off the elevator.
*plang*

Coool….

  15. whoosh you had me there for a minute. The vaguely hermaphroditic undertones, the subtle hints of ice cubes plunking into a cocktail glass. So to speak. Thumbs up, my friend.

  20. I use to have a Beatnik doll that looked just like the girl in the picture. When you pulled her string she said, “Dig my crazy black stockings” (among other things).
    Cool poem.
