Adult alphabet

This poem didn’t make the cut for my forthcoming book, so I’m dropping it here:

 

Adult alphabet

A is for apple, Ava and Adam;
B is for their banishment, far better than Eden.

C is for both cock and cunt, of course;
D is for doing it, i.e. intercourse.

E is for either Eileen or Ebrahim;
F is for ‘Fuck!’ when you’re lying between them.

G is for growing into your gender;
H is for hetero or homo, both can refuse that blender.

I, however, is for the self now alone;
J is for jilted; watch out, it hurts to the bone.

K is for knockers, those who beg at the door;
L is the lie that you tell to the poor.

M is for money, you can have more and more;
N is for niggardly, when you keep scores and scores.

O is for opus, the one you’ll never write some day;
P is for poetasters, they should hide theirs away.

Q is for the quandaries that adult life brings:
R for rent, S for sex, T for evermore taxing things.

U is for underworld, and it approaches fast;
V is for vitamins as you try your best to last.

W is for worldly, that stuff left behind;
X will mark your spot that no one will find.

Y is for the youth that you have surely lost;
Z is for the flies zooming round your corpse now host.

  7. Simon says:

    Who decides what makes the cut and what doesn’t? Do you take suggestions from editors? #curious.

  8. RK says:

    Simon, sometimes the publisher or a reader may make a comment that confirms my suspicions; sometimes on re-reading or editing the ms. you suddenly feel that a poem doesn’t quite fit. Of course, these ‘feelings’ and ‘senses’ can always be argued against or for. But in general, this poem made the general tone a bit jagged. It was noted by the publisher; I agreed.
