barry mundi
dreamhusband
his wife kisses his back
youve been such a good boy
oh baby oh baby oh baby
she crouches over him kissing his back
and whispering things
the air flows through their room like silk
and the air evaporates the moisture on them
and they feel so cool so cool
oh you saint of a man barry mundi
oh how your sweet wife adores thee
kiss you so softly
her blonde hair dangles on your shoulders
her kisses traverse your back
insinuating themselves into your spine and chakras
oh i love you baby
she says against your skin so only god can hear
delightful woman breathes summer into your skin
as you lie there
as you lie there today in the autumnal sun
as you lie face down on your bed
and your little wife kiss kiss caress caress
drift now drift
your wife opens your flesh
and you slip out at once
and fly out of the room
somewhere indefinable
if you could define this place
you would be the greatest of all poets
and the master of all mathematicians
music is there for the taking
and art
oh if you could bring one picture back
sentient colour implodes in divine symmetry
reds becoming purple becoming black becoming white
ah but theres the rub
so hard to bring it all back home
try now try
try to steal these treasures
suddenly its all gone
and youre back in youre room
and shes still kissing your back
and you can remember the impressions
but not the particulars
you hear the wonder of the music
but not any of the notes
empty-handed
poor dreamhusband
barry mundi

    Barramundi – Equilibrium
    Barramundi suggests, for a male, the realization of one’s innate feminine Dreaming.

    strangely enough the barramundi changes sex from male to female at about 4 years old – is there an autoerotic dimension to today’s vignette?

    Steve, I like Mimesis! But please, for the next Church album I wish you guys to go heavy metal. At the end of “Reptile” acoustic version in EMS you get high notes with your voice I never thought you could! Try to sing some songs that way or use that. Go heavy metal!!!

    So nice when you post pics, we want more pics!!!

    hey Not Armageddon,

    Please don’t sink New Zealand. It’s a beautiful place and besides, The Chills are from NZ. Anyone else remember these guys? Pink Frost and House with a Hundred Rooms…great stuff.

    So sorry ’bout 2 posts in a row but I’ve just gone to the Blogtopsites and there are some strange fucking people out there. The blog currently in the #36 position is:

    Journey to the Darkside
    Spanking blog with a Star Wars theme, includes our true sex adventures, erotic and roleplaying photos and erotic fiction.

    Who comes up with this stuff? Bloody hell! Spanking AND Star Wars combined. Not even in my wildest imagination could I possibly conjure up something so geeky and demented, ha!

    to celticat: it’s a little tricky, but here’s how you do it:

    *first you have to post a picture of yourself (small file); to do that you click on “new post”, and it’ll open a box.

    *click on the little icon on the top of the box that looks like a little mountain and then find your picture on your hard drive and follow the prompts.

    *then publish it as if you were publishing a written post.

    *then go back into the “edit” section, and open the box you posted your picture to, and convert it to “edit html”, and copy the SECOND code (there’s two), that starts with “html…..”.

    *go into the “edit profile” section, and find the field that says “photo url”, and paste what you just copied into there, and then scroll down and click “save”, and if the file is not too big, it will say “profile updated”. if it says it’s too big, you may have to reduce the file size of your picture some more.

    *then you can delete your photo from the post (or leave it~~whatever…).

    it may take a few tries, but this is how it’s done. i don’t find blogger very “user friendly” at all. i’ve belonged to other blogsites, and they are waaayyy easier to use. these instructions are kinda close to what blogger tells you to do, but my experience was a little trial and error till i figured it out. (and a lot of “dammits” and grunts and groans…)
