Sex With A Dictionary!

By NarcissusNarcosis

I have become hypnagogic
watching this
pestiferous quest
for superiority
wearing your
meretricious mask
producing only ersatz work
denigratory towards anyone
who isn't having sex
with a dictionary...
Does magniloquent speech
now equal
skilled poetry?
A tautological cataract
of complex
vocabulary
appearing intelligent
to toady friends
but becoming the
ennui of the masses...
Dyspeptic love
for myopia
stentorian insults
hurled at originality,
barely ancillary to the other
cheap imitations
but smelling like
VD-infected testicles
all the same...
Let the
innovators
staunch
this sisyphean trend
and sing our victory tune
in icy sprechgesang...

    Oh geez. Transitioning slowly--wakefulness to sleep, watching the infection spreading quickly . . yes it seems tawdry, ostensibly--delve deeper and there's nothing there--lately so many critiques built on grandiosity. Eye floaties that shield from clarity, anyone trying to tell me they were born with the definition of 'sprechgesang' implanted in their brain . . . . well, it just pisses me off. Awesome . . . right ;D . . . as always.

    I dug this and like it even more 'cause it pissed people off. I like most everyone that has had their comments removed and I also read works I think stink but who cares, "do you" as the kids say.

    Just got here, dont really know who hates who or why we may or may not hate the author but I will have to say I really like this. What's sad is I had to look up a word (two actually) I like learning things - Thanks. Scholar

    To close this off, I would like to say: this site is built around the idea that anyone can be a poet, and I fully respect that. I may not like some poets on here, and one of my biggest pet peeves is misspelled words, but it is anyone's right to have an account on here. I have never read about any criteria or skill levels to meet, but if I have missed something, please inform me. Thanks to everyone for the comments! Have a great evening

    You said it all man, this was too cool. Last thing I wanna do is pick up a dictionary for every other word in the piece. Awesome NN, later -

    Hahahaha! I love this piece. Especially for this one phrase "but smelling like VD-infected testicles". How well put!

    Daaammmnn I need to fuck that bitch good! Few terms in here I haven't seen, but I definitely got the feel. You're right though. Poetry doesn't have to have the largest vocab, or be the wordiest to be good poetry. Getting the point across is all that matters, and you did a damn good job here *grins*

    I know I get tired of thesaurus abuser poetry, so I just don't read that shit cuz I prefer relevant modern work. Though a good vocabulary is important :) yours seems full to me. You're beautiful baby - XXOO Scholar

    Haha.. I used to read the dictionary for fun when i was younger... it's sad.I need to brush up on my vocabulary for sure... This was awesome though, I enjoyed it and I knew all the words *self-five* ;p xoxo

  • A former member wrote: I agree with the point you make here, an extensive vocabulary is not necessary to write great poetry. Skillful word usage is what makes many poems stand out, regardless of word complexity. Cool post

    sadly, I'm not as well versed in some of the words as I should be.. Well written! It's always nice to learn something new, whether by feeling foolish or by branching out. I'll be glad to read this a few more times!

    Keep rolling that rock up the hill every day and maybe some night it won't roll back down! Your songspeak is superfluously superb and much enjoyed. The flow was great! (HA)

    Thank you dwells! I was wondering if anyone would catch 'Sisyphean' or know the mythology of the word
