manic digestion.

ok, now it is ready.

i dont know if
our long talk in his car
was more than me
babbling on about
prosperity.

gone for weeks.
the hibernated,
hyphenated sails i call
manic digestion.

chew everything up,
while it's good.
you let it settle
then turn every piece
of waste, every apple core
purple.
as to stop the thumping
of a healthy pulse.

she was more then
a piece of meat.
the greens were there too.
peppers looked bright.
i swallowed.

the edges of my stomach
became tight.
brianna began to settle
like a warm glass of soda.
all the bubbly she had
popped open with a fizz
in the last few minutes
before bed.

i awoke gut wrenching,
veins gone violet.
next to me was vommit.
maybe five green beans,
chunks of beef,
all in a caramel soup
without the carbonation.

let's see.... (will edit in)

first thoughts : I still don't like the beginning... This really got better with the additions though... (will still edit in) than----> then

"then turn every piece
of waste, every apple core
purple. "

The flow gets disrupted here. I think the reader can hardly stay on track with your thoughts upon first read. We get what you mean, but the first few times I had to stop and re-read the passage just to make it coherent.

I didn't like "piece of meat" but taken in context, especially with the upcoming stanzas, it's perfect.

everything else you added is just great writing. you really did save the piece here. You went from mediocre to way above average. I'd still love to see some work on the opening, but as it is now, it really stands on it's own.

Great work, especially if you added all of this in such a short time span.

this left me with the feeling of vodka.
both of them.

edit: what? I did post that. I'll be back. I preferred this version, but the same as what I said about the first one applies. I still enjoyed it more, but it's the handpicked ideas that hit me, so the form didn't change them too much.

Apart from the first two verse's a really liked this. There really isn't much more I feel I am capable of adding. I've been reading this over the last 10-or-so minutes and I can't really find much to dislike, apart from what I already mentioned. I don't know excatly what it is I dislike about your introduction, it just doesn't set any sort of tone. Its like you wrote everything else first and then tagged on a beginning.

Everything I put on my plate that is beautiful, cycles through my psyche, and comes back trash.
