Jessica Gleason

So, if your eyes are delicate,
read about sailboats. So stern
and solid, made of aged wood.
So different from the strong
rigidity of a feisty ignorant boner.

  1. The last of Jessica’s current submissions. It does feel like an introductory poem, so I feel a bit like placing the horse after the cart, if you know what I mean, but like all of Jessica’s poetry, a pleasure to read…

  2. Inward psyche desires what is predictable in ancient classical verse or a nineteenth century sense of street wise lust is translated now from the doggerel to the objective of a modern flash flesh subjectivity of a minority of one.

  3. Allie Marini Batts

    With a title like that, naturally I had to keep reading. Glad I did, though the last image is probably NSFW…..but that’s the point, right? Playful and pretty at the same time, entirely unexpected from a short piece with the words “ignorant boner” at its close!

  4. Interesting piece. I like it. BTW Your blog isn’t on my reader anymore. Did you change anything?
