You guys have to check out Richard Siken's poetry! It's seriously one of the most brilliant and beautiful things I've ever read and it's helping me write the boy/boy poems I've posted here as of late :P My favorite poem of his is called "Little Beast" but they're all so seductive and gorgeous and haunting. Here's a link to his webpage but I went as far as buying his book "Crush" on Amazon because I'm that much in love with his writing :D So I hope you enjoy it also..

Wow!

He is very good. 'Little Beast' is very good. 'Wishbone' was pretty intense, as well. Good stuff.

Oh I love "Wishbone"! My

Oh I love "Wishbone"! My favorite line in it is "if you love me, Henry, you love me in a way I don't understand." *swoon* :D
