Writer of The Month - March - Carmel
Real Name: Carmel
Location: Tel Aviv, Israel
Favourite Artists: Change on a daily basis. Today is an Elliot Smith day.
Favourite poet/poem (published writer): Changes daily. Today I like this Ė
Drunk as drunk on turpentine
From your open kisses,
Your wet body wedged
Between my wet body and the strake
Of our boat that is made of flowers,
Feasted, we guide it - our fingers
Like tallows adorned with yellow metal -
Over the sky's hot rim,
The day's last breath in our sails.
Pinned by the sun between solstice
And equinox, drowsy and tangled together
We drifted for months and woke
With the bitter taste of land on our lips,
Eyelids all sticky, and we longed for lime
And the sound of a rope
Lowering a bucket down its well. Then,
We came by night to the Fortunate Isles,
And lay like fish
Under the net of our kisses.
Why do you write? Because good words unwritten are good words wasted.
Favourite word(s): Northern.
Favourite technique/style to write in: Rhyme schemes, free verse.
What do you do especially, to find inspiration: Love.
Your most recent work and reason behind it: Found a piece of paper with the draft of a little speech I wrote for my momís memorial. Made me remember stuff about the years we spent in hospitals.

Picture: As if.
This is not a pipe

I remember this one
Whale Blue Review
Park that car
Drop that phone
Sleep on the floor
Dream about me

I am not your friend
I'm not your lover
I'm not your family

Everytime you post three pieces in a month, you deserve at least a chance to win. This was a good month to win with .

I've been waiting for someone to include some Neruda in one of these. Congrats.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!
