The Unforgettable Hug

I did not know her or ever see her again

She stood greeting guests, one hug per man

As I was introduced to her she began her embrace

As if an octopus ensnared me, every piece of her flesh

Impressed onto my embodiment and began to infuse...

Say it, god damn it

nice, i wrote a similar poem. Magical thinking, the fantastical american mind

“The charm of anticipated success”, everything accepted with a “bated breathe”,

The revival meeting is a fluffy huffy guff, oh boy that snake oil is really good stuff

Wandering and wondering among the bounty, he will build my own empire, have his own county,

Dreaming the fantasy that tickles his fancy, the dream will come true, it is not even chancy

Everyman is a castle, or he believes that it is so, he’ll make good on his aspiration or keep it in tow

As tocqueville and others pointed out long ago, america and magical thinking are apropos

i liked the poem . i think if you described differen sounds that the image would make the poem would have a more of a metaphoric effect. for instance
no windbag incessant droning from politicians or something like that my 2 cents

i liked the proclaiming nature of the poem my only critique is the word conquering your positive proclamation is dampen into a dark cloud in your last line.
