Reviews for Oysters and Tulips
ACCOUNT P.E.R.I.S.H.E.D chapter 1 . 4/1/2009
this should be overly-reviewed. which is odd, because of everything of your's I've read I think it is one of the most powerful.

the imagery is delicious.

I love the "tulips exhaling slowly", and the knuckles and mistakes all over your bodies... so imperfect and touchable.

it's very in-human (if I can say that) sort of animalistic and meaty, like you're lost from the tangible human world, and smoking quietly somewhere.

I recognise the hunger of it.

in your other poem, "it's something like love", that line: I recognise too...!

1: "Early mornings...as treasured as pearls." A rare morning. The imagery this line evokes is lovely!

2: "Tulips exhaling slowly." Oh wow! Outstanding personification of nature! :)

3: "I only grew more and more in the darkness." Mysterious, and kind of erotic ;)

4: "A delicate eggshell." A beautiful depiction of human fragility.

5: "Afraid to touch, rather than burn." I like how this referred to the idea that a lover's touch is too strong, too hot, that it burns you.

6: "Quentin Tarantino." Ahahaha! I love how this allusion adds a dark/twisted feeling to the love, which works perfectly with the innocent previous line 'and tea.'
