kirk loves spock

12 Sep

When I was younger I often wondered if Spock and Captain Kirk were a homosexual couple.  There were hints throughout the original series that would make you think, at least if you inclined to pick up on those markers.

I had read some of the fan fiction that portrays them as gay but most of the writing is so poor you can barely finish.

In my own imagination I picture Kirk as a dom top with a bit of  BDSM and leather, while Spock is definitely a sub bottom.  Femme in bed, submissive, serving Kirk’s every sexual whim and need.


Of course I realize that gay is not all about sex, that is the action act of sex, but it’s fun to think about.

Certainly I can picture Spock getting annoyed with Kirk’s constant demands and giving Kirk the Vulcan Nerve Pinch when he wants a break.

The new Star Trek Discovery has a gay couple, but that’s not quite what I need.  I want white hot passion and compassion; sensuality and sexuality.  When Star Trek Beyond revealed that Sulu was married to a man I almost didn’t notice.  Maybe I’ve grown to expect that box to be checked.

In the end I would enjoy a passionate homosexual relationship in a mainstream movie, like a Star Trek.  Something where the two lovers break away and fuck in unexpected places, like a typical depiction of a straight couple.  May Kirk could throw Spock up on a counter, kiss Spock hard and wet as Kirk slips into him.  Show it the same way you show straight sex.

would we ever fly, again?

11 Sep

i remember driving down the main road
in the dark of early morning;
driving toward another day; driving toward
another static day;

i remember walking into a hotel bar; i sold
to the hospitality industry in those days;
people crowded the TV; i had heard the
radio but it didn’t register;

i remember the images on repeat; no one
knew anything; smoke & fire & a man
jumped from the 86th floor; better than
burning; I guess;

i remember ending my day early; racing to daycare;
holding my daughter; knowing her
world forever changed & nothing would
be the same;

i remember the names; thousands of names;
& the faces covered in ash;
we were all the same color that day;

i remember the silence when i ran in
the woods behind my house; no planes
flying; would they ever fly again?

would we ever fly,

raven cage – six new ones coming

10 Sep

i followed the lead of fellow poet, Brian Rihlmann, a to a zine called Raven Cage.  after reading Issue 36 i thought i would submit some stuff.  the theme is fairly eclectic & breaks each issue into sub-genres.  & having published an on-line zine poetry journal i know that the format used is a fuck ton of work.  so congrats to jerry langdon.

i will be in issue 37 & will announce the particulars.  this six that were accepted were all thematically similar (rare for me) & based more on memory of the past than the present.

this one means a lot.

Review: Justin Booth, The Luckiest Man

30 Aug

Told the end of phase 1 of my writing career – around 2010 – I really fell in love with writing reviews.  And I think I am going to get back at it.

George Anderson over at BOLD MONKEY was kind enough to post a review of Justin Booth’s The Luckiest Man.  BOLD MONKEY is a great site loaded with poetry and reviews of poetry books.  George has a keen eye.

rob & jack america – radio show

20 Aug

a long time ago in the days of myspace poetry groups, rob plath and I had a radio show we called “rob & jack america.” it came from the idea we had of traveling across the country, doing poetry readings on the street and at any available venue, video taping it and making a documentary.  i actually had the chance to pitch the idea to A&E but it fell through.

we did 20 or so episodes of the show before i burned out completely and, finally, melted down to the point i couldn’t write or do much of anything.

flash forward ten years and i “found” the rob & jack america archives.  one of the best is with scott wannberg.  another with sa griffin.  and we even had wanda coleman on but it was a troubled show.  fortunately wolfgang carstens saved the day…

listening to the old show has pushed me to start it up again. rob and i have discussed it, and we would include puma perl, but we need a platform.  blogtalk radio charges now but i think i can get a sponsor for it.  we’ll see.
