Ultimatum

Updated on June 18, 2017
Mihnea Andreescu profile image

Mihnea-Andrei Andreescu is a Romanian Symbolist/Avant-Garde poet and author of "Of Ecstasy and Sorrow".

I well know,my dear,

That oxen and grass

Are more akin

Than you and me.

I well know...

Clusters of carrion

Would rather be heaved

And offal spewed

By the throats of the Skies

Than witness us in one breath -side by side...

Yet even today mine pen screams your name,

And paints you in monochrome hues.

Berating me for being so ludicrous,

To ever fall in love with you....

      Yes I was ironic in those two lines-those with the oxen and grass too!Definitely the right attitude here.

      The last two lines made me smile; hope I have the right attitude. Really good lines!
