So, I'm about five days behind in my poetry challenge, mostly due to an incident last week that I didn't discuss here, and my on-again-off-again illness. But I'd like to catch up over the weekend, so I could use some prompts to get me going again. They could be fun and/or serious. Quotations and bits of lyrics or random dialogue are always good. Please reply with some thoughts. Thanks!

today I started writing about specific scents/odors and associated memories - very Proustian, except not.

For some reason (!), this quotation from Walt Whitman ostensibly describing a blow job always gets my creative juices flowing:

I mind how once we lay such a transparent summer's morning
How you settled your head athwart my hips
And gently turned over upon me
And parted the shirt from my bosom-bone
And plunged your tongue to my bare-stript heart
And reached till you felt my beard
And reached till you held my feet.

This is done from memory, so I may have one or two words wrong, but essentially it is correct. Hope this works for you too!

I ordered Mai Fun for lunch today, so my inspiration suggestion is My Fun. What is fun for you?

Britney Spears must die.
Amy Winehouse must die.
Pete Doherty must die.
Lindsey Lohan must die.
Tom Cruise must die horribly.

There's your five.
