Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes,
Within a dream.''

Poem - The Universe is a Tit

My daughter was born this week.
It's been quite an experience observing her.


The Universe is a Tit

It's a whole existence
in a nipple
and
who gives a fuck
about the world 'out there'
and those 'important' entities
with
all their hoarded conceptions
the fashion sense
the existential crisis
there is no self stylised image
when there is tit

A Moon
has nothing
on a Boob
a Drive Thru Galaxy
no need for upgrades
consumerism is an empty illusion
there is only Beauty
simplified
a non hand me down
a non sold concept
fresher than truth




ill take it
and discard all the words
all the false promises
isn't all else merely bullshit?
when there is tit

It's the closest thing
To pure satisfaction
i'll ever have again.

  2. And your little bub, when it arrives (if it hasn't already) will most likely be in competition for this sensual part of your partners anatomy. It will be his or her universe for quite some time.
    Great poem dedicated to the mammary gland.
