i feel guilty when I post a poem when there are poems in the forum I haven't read yet. And of course I'm a glutton for reasons to feel guilty, so I will spend an hour tonight reading through all more recent..even if I need to buy more kleenex. (no joke! these poems do make me use the kleenex!..When I read my 1000th poem you all will owe me a box! lol)

Anyway this one kind of goes with the new avatar.

P. A . N. T. H. E. R.

(Person Abused Now Turned Hostile Entity Reconstruction)



Holding onto a glowing

in skin of moonless night--

the darkness-complicit color

to see but be out of sight.

Lurking shadow monster

more than what is seen-

a fire inside a shadow;

dangerous, but not mean.

A little like a big black pussycat

no reason to run and hide

but show respect

or I'll connect direct

to my jungle deep inside

because someone has made me a panther

that wears a human skin

but who would choose to show

just the sleek black glow of the panther spirit within

Are you scared? I hope so...or do I hope not?.. I don't know

I just don't win wearing this skin that can only be covered with clothes.

And my teeth are too short and too blunt like my claws.

I want those white lightening swords

and instead of that one most perfect growl

I have only inadequate words.

Doug,

I still can't figure out what it is, but the poem really struck something in me. Been waiting to respond when I figured it out but have given up trying to explain it.

Thanks you... peace and love...

Michael

lol Kind of sounds like the "black panthers". (I kind of think maybe we need to organize a gay version of the black panthers movement. Gays are just about as oppressed now as blacks have ever been!

When I was making my "sneetches and stars" video I found myself unable to find more than one or two highly publicized hate crimes against people of color, but when it comes to hate crimes against gays, there was more than enough!...it makes me kind of paranoid! Plus I seemed to observe a societal tendency to look the other way..like the courts finding any reason possible to get out of recognizing a murder as a hate crime! Grrrr!
