Nescafe rabbit


Clarabear asked me about Jezebel...and so did Jefe and a couple of others. So here's the answer...she ...is one of the only images in my poetry that I don't know who she represents.
Archetypically, she's the ultimate wicked temptress, embodiment of sin and evil. She was rebuked by the prophet Elijah for her wickedness...and eventually when she died not even the dogs would touch her body.

But my symbols don't always follow reason.
And every time she shows up in my poetry, I'm begging her for something...

Look at the other poems she's been in...

So I don't know, Clarabear. Maybe she's my love affair with wishing I were bad and hedonistic and uncaring. Maybe she's something else. Maybe she's me. Can't tell.

Mom, I love you.

Whisper: *sniffles* Did you find the email with the livejournal link in it?
RaBever87: No, I didn't.......I never saw any that I know of.....what address did you send it from?
RaBever87: Can you resend it?
Whisper: Warning: some of the language isn't always the best. Especially when I'm ranting.
RaBever87: ok, i guess i don't have TOO sensitive ears.
Whisper: Figured I'd warn you, since I tend to swear a lot more when I write than when I'm speaking.
RaBever87: but i can hardly believe my gentle daughter would result to profanity! :)

For all of you whose parents don't understand you...for all of you whose parents refuse to acknowledge that you're an adult...for all of you whose parents think that just because you have a mind, desires, and volitions that differ from theirs you're some kind of deviant who should be kept on a tight leash...
Mom is mine, but I'll share her with you if you want to come and visit.

Not to neglect my daddy, because I'm such a daddy's girl it's absolutely ridiculous, and I'll talk about my daddy in another post. But right now, I love Mom.
