My monome’s late because of ice and snow

Posted in Poems by the Brother, Villanelles on February 19, 2011 by familialdiscontent

My monome’s late because of ice and snow.
I hang my head, and slowly start to weep,
and I must wait to see those buttons glow.

My rancour twitches, twists and grows; although
my hundred-twenty-eight is buried deep,
My monome’s late because of ice and snow.

The lights are out, the roof hangs dark and low,
and frightful bands of shadow creatures creep;
and I must wait to see those buttons glow.

I can’t imagine drifts that stop the show;
Australia’s hot, and has so many sheep.
My monome’s late because of ice and snow.

And some day soon, control events will flow,
And I must wait for synths to growl and beep,
And I must wait to see those buttons glow.

So here I am, with no place else to go.
No point in crying, losing any sleep.
My monome’s late because of ice and snow,
and I shall wait to see those buttons glow.

Kiss Me Goodnight

Posted in Poems by the Sister, Villanelles on July 7, 2010 by familialdiscontent

Take flight to my chamber and kiss me goodnight
Our unnatural tryst is a secret embraced
For thy cellophane palms hold a cup of delight

My dreams long to swim in thy wantonly light
To wake me from slumber aglow with thy taste
Take flight to my chamber and kiss me goodnight

O phantasmal brute of rapturous fright
Unravel my decorous portrait of chaste
For thy cellophane palms hold a cup of delight

O’er valleys of damned and dark you take flight
To my somnolent bestial arms you must haste
Take flight to my chamber and kiss me goodnight

N’er before had I scaled a crest of such height
As the night you slid under my blanketed waist
For thy cellophane palms hold a cup of delight

Know this my spectral creature of night
My virtue is yours, forever encased
Take flight to my chamber and kiss me goodnight
For thy cellophane palms hold a cup of delight
