Probably the most erotic poem I ever read is Allen Ginsberg’s poem, Please Master. I’m fairly certain nearly anyone who reads this aloud will give pause at certain lines and be left blushing. This could possibly be the most explicit poem ever written so beware, but if intrigued you may read the full poem here.

The quote comes from Neruda’s poem, Tonight I Can Write (The Saddest Lines), which you may read here. The poem was published in Neruda’s book, Love: Ten Poems. It was this book and its poems that served as the inspiration behind the 1990s film, Il Postino, a breathtakingly beautiful Italian film.
Check out Steven Boyle’s video from the Penn State student poetry slam. His nearly 4 minute video about coming out at the age of 20 is touching and hilarious; part poetry and part Mad Lib.
Definitely watch this video but be careful since the language makes it inappropriate for work.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve republished a slightly naughty limerick that I wrote a few years ago in honor of the holiday.
Lim’ricks are the naughtiest prose
Dirty rhymes we love to compose
Men from Nantucket
Shouting, “Go $uck it!”
Are fun to write I suppose
If you have a limerick you’d like to share, I’d enjoy reading it. Feel free to e-mail me or leave it in the comments section.
Poetry is not a form of prose often recited and it often goes over my head, but when I connect with a poem or on the rare occasion I write a poem it resonates in a way that is hard to describe. Here is a poem written by one of my favorite poets, Robert Frost.
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening was first published in 1923.
I love poetry. I think when you can connect to this form of creative prose the content of the expression becomes powerful. Savannah Brown’s poetry slam What guys look for in girls is one of those poems.
While I was doing some post holiday house cleaning I stumbled upon a poem I wrote years ago. I actually forgot I wrote this until after I read it. I’ll never be a poet, but I do love poetry and dabble in it from time to time. When I write, it tends to be fairly obvious and less articulate, but that can also make it more relatable I suppose. I’m fairly certain this haiku I wrote summarizes situations that everyone has experienced before.
