Poet Porn

Handwriting in Old Diary

Typing poetry is like vibrator sex
words nailed down
precisely spaced insertions
unentangled
emotional withdrawal method

Writing longhand
words and thoughts entwine
like lover's limbs
one covering another
emotional foreplay
creative juices flowing

Poems don't love a keyboard
insist on a gentle fingering
in roaming lines
a slow-hand diddle
pen over page
making love to words

~Nara

Since the summer, I've been slowly teaching this writer brain of mine to rough draft a story on the keyboard instead of longhand. Full length novels drafted across several journals, tucked between poems, sketches and to-do lists, are not an efficient way to get that job done.  It's been a war, me against the words. I thought I'd won. Then cleaning up the other day I picked up an old journal and a pen wandered into my hand and these words fell out on the page. This could be why I haven't had many poems to share these past few months.

  1. Wow - I think I want to try YOUR writing method! I have a love/hate relationship with my writing, but so far it's been platonic. Glad your back though!

  3. I gave up longhand a long, long time ago. Going back now would not give me poetry porn - just indecipherable chaos.

  7. I love what you've written
    Though it is not my experience.

    When the words are flowing
    The medium doesn't matter.

    I wrote my Visual Dare entry this week in pencil
    Because I was a way from my keyboard.

    Cool regards!

  10. Thanks for share Poet Porn. I Loved Poet Porn. We often get asked this question when working with partners as well as individuals. Porn, now more commonly known as "best 10 porn", has been around in various types for centuries way back to cavern renter artwork and well-endowed clay-based infertility sculptures. We have found both good and bad factors of watching adult.
