i am the lover in your bed
i am the sex that you provide
i am the hate you try to hide
i speak religion's message clear
i am denial guilt and fear
i am the prayers of the naive
i am the lie that you believe
i am the needle in your vein
i am the high you can't sustain
i am the pusher i'm a whore
i am the need in you for more
i am the bullet in the gun
i am the truth from which you run
i am the silencing machine
i am the end of all your dreams
i take you where you want to go
i give you all you need to know
i drag you down i use you up
can you guess who i am?

The Boston Poet
You aren't Allen Ginsberg
Even Burroughs has sold out
Stop reading so much Kerouac
Crack is in and smack is out
You bombard me with your politics
But still say nothing new
Use words like "fuck" to shock us
(the only way we'll listen to you)
You found God, found equality, found horse in a rusty spike
Found love, found the clitoris, found money and threw it away
Now please go and find some talent
Or perhaps even something to say

god-that made me insane. ditto for things like 'i am your woman/your slave/your bitch/your whore/you engulf me with your penis/blah blah blah'.
people took themselves SO SERIOUSLY.

yeah, it's a drag; sometimes there'll be a good writer who is a terrible reader. Most people at slam-reading-open mike things aren't exactly seasoned performers. Or writers, come to think of it.
"you engulf me with your penis"(!?) made me laugh out loud. Good one, Asia.

I got last place in the very first round.
I had heard all the judges read before.
I was very proud of myself.
