Rather like Gilgamesh
a man not yet made
a stone brother
strength to strength
so I remember (after
the earth quiets
from our meeting)
Thanks, Alice. 😉 more of my un-love poetry.
I try to write love poetry without using the word, at least lately 😉
exceptional Susan ~ LOVE is often unspelled~ Blessings friend
Thanks so much, Deb!
Mythic love poems…>KB
Thanks, KB. I have been all wrapped up in Gilgamesh since I read miller’s translation. Think part of me is stuck in Mesopotamia.
Thank you, Terry! Happy Val day!
Thanks, Celestine! happy Val. day.
Lovely, Lovely, Lovely… 🙂
Thanks, Dana. happy Val day!
Part of my long essay project for my Bachelor’s was an exposition on Gilgamesh and Enkidu. I am assuming that you are in this instance, Enkidu, the second-self of Gilgamesh, The Brutish man, but in that imagery lies a bit of tragedy, because Enkidu is demised and Gilgamesh went in search of Utnapishthim…. but I am also sure your poet persona isn’t going that fa afield.
In this case I see more of an Alan Shore seeking his Denny Crane (I love that pair in Boston Legal). Their exploits and camaraderie goes beyond the normal to the sublime.
Again however, we can explore the sexual undertone in this which will make Sussie a very very naughty girl… lol
Yes, guilty as charged. My persona was going to frolic far afield with my man not made yet–but probably not to the extent of battling demons and offending goddesses and gods to the point I would have met an early demise 😉
I just don’t know which I prefer–naughtiness fully illustrated or naughtiness implied. Both have their appeal 😉
I’m hearing Carol King…
Oooo.. Which one?
