The Swagger Of A Woman Past Midnight

Men like gravel & wine
big lungfuls of space
to breathe
like biting on oxygen
and hitting a six

Women get their swag on
opening windows
gulping Universal life
eating raw & meditating

Food & Drink & Sex
Meat & Wine & Orgasms

The clock chimes Midnight
The woman in me pulses
sleepy veins surge awake

I hit a six
I sleep the sleep
of a Buddha
at one in
mindfulness tranquillity

Until the summer light
filters urgency
slow corruption

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Betty I have been with many women!...
all kick ass..none shy!

and suprisingly a lot powerful..
maybe thats why they felt the angst
or showed it expressed it..

control was a lot of the issue

how they showed it and I responded...

nothing like waking up a butcher knife
over you..

smile now.I lived through it unlike
Elliot Smith

I worked for many many Matriarch
the Patriarch system of competing
for a trophy was bullshit
the women just knew how to have
more goddamn fuN!

and I worked for many
and I had fun..

read this much..
no one else really has said
much but probably read about me..

Powerful women scare the men..
but then I love being scared

no I like creative thinking
as this poem expresses

Thank You!

"Women rule & men drool"....(as said by my daughter , paraphrasing the Disney film 'Cats& Dogs'!!!!)...out of the mouths of babes, huh? LOL

The tensions between men & women will always give grist to the mill of a poets febrile mind.

author comment

Some of the books and men you know seem to be biased.
I was multitasking the other day and thought of you.
I was shopping and checking the prices and thought of you.
I was looking at the shop windows with longing, and thought of you.
I had terrible stomach ache, thought what the hell, I am me..
I have decided to remain a hunter gatherer, but if you followed my writes and comments, you would know that I have a cave to stay in..LOL
Great write, try not to get carried away with this supreme outlook you may need a weak man one day..
Still loves you though, Yours Ian.T
PS:- That is unconditional love mind you!!!!

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
