Posted to Action Poetry

hey fantastic babes,

i know i haven't been around much lately, ya know, work, work, work... well i still pop in and feast on the glorious contributions of the many fabulous litkicks geniuses, and enjoy thoroughly.

well today i was thinkin about my lonely self with no serious valentine... so i thought i'd ask all of you spectacular litkicks supachix to be my valentine, at least from a distance!

so since i'm a weak and pathetic poet at the best of times, i thought i'd gift you with a poem by the master pablo neruda, one which has always held a special place in my heart as one of the most beautiful pieces of romance ever written.

Your Feet

When I cannot look at your face
I look at your feet.
Your feet of arched bone,
your hard little feet.
I know that they support you,
and that your sweet weight
rises upon them.
Your waist and your breasts,
the doubled purple
of your nipples,
the sockets of your eyes
that have just flown away,
your wide fruit mouth,
your red tresses,
my little tower.
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.

Pablo Neruda

there ya go! many happy wishes, and i hope your lives are filled with adventure and romance, excitement and passion. may your days be filled with sunshine, candy, and tangerine tulips.

love from gordon
