Welcome to the PoeticalCondition Monthly Member Feature!

Our Member of January is:
Demosthenes-H :icondemosthenes-h:
My name is Demosthenes (yes I realise I have the name of a long dead orator... I did try putting pebbles in my mouth at one point)- I'm a student/poet who lives in Sydney (in 'straya). My relationship with poetry is love/hate; I love poetry and hate all of my own.
Oscar Wilde is my deity and I live by his wise-assed wisdom. Peace <3

Congratulations on the nomination, Demosthenes!

3 of their favorite works are:
The Red-Haired.Cascading copper blood more sensual
Than the tang of unwound citrus fruit;
Not quite the sun, rather more forgiving
To the eyes- yet every bit as stunning-
And would be a harshly cold existence
Of cruel ice cutters and creaks and claws and
Melted butter stew and faded chestnut
Oaks and all that was not a mathematical
Mastery of objective beauty; of form;
So unnatural, that only nature could
Conjure Euclidean angles- into a
Freudian playground of sexuality;
With the phenomenon that is product
Of pheomelanin (commonly found
In the uncommon one percentile
Who pull practical jokes on genetics)
 
 The lustrous and illusive 'red-haired'

3 of our favorite works written by them are:
:thumb348594990: (She) Wears the Mask (A Parody)She wears the mask that's green and why:
 (Exfoliates cheeks and avoid the eyes)
  She'd pay a beautician- while
  I share a beer with a mate named Kyle;
  As we scratch our genitals unsubtly.
Why in the world didn't she check the price;
  Doesn't her natural beauty suffice?
  Nope,"I can only see you (she said in a rile)
        After I've worn the mask."
I had smiled, but Jesus H. Christ; guys
 Don't need to get a loan or a pay rise-
 To afford to have their nails filed
 (Or to have smoother thighs than a child)
-But I'll give her credit because she tries
       (But I still carry a flask).
==========================================================================================
Original poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar:
We wear the mask that grins and lies,
   It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
   This debt we pay to human guile;
   With torn and bleeding hearts we
A Cigarette.Of wooden and stale fascinations;
            That become the wick and kindle
                        For black grain and black paste
                                   That wetly leaks out of throatholes,
With burning red and white cushions
That taste like fired guns;
                 Except when the trigger is pulled, fingers;
                                Fingers are reduced to short black stubs
                                                          That pulsate and squirm like
               


Check them out!
