Sweet. Here's more.

a few months ago my friend and bandmate told me that someone in one of our audiences found me attractive... and I was very appreciative of that, just so long as she understood that I was "a different kind of cat." And that phrase stuck with me and stuck with me and then lyrics started erupting out of my brain and eventually I had written this. I have no music for it yet, it's just lyrics so far.


Different Kind of Cat
by My Rap Name is Alex

Lemme be up front, I don't like to front
I'm not the type of cat that just says what you want
I'm poly, I'm so poly there is no doubt
And I'm out, I'm so out it's sump'n I shout about
Show me around and try concealing my views
and the next thing you know I'm talkin poly on the news
It's in all of my books, in my art, and my songs
I'll tell anyone who asks; I don't think it's wrong
________ revealed life could be this way one day
And I like it, okay? And it's how I'm gonna stay.

I'm a different kind of cat, I'm just a different kind of cat
And I'm thanking you for thinking thoughts that I am all o dat
But yo, just so you know I am a different kind of cat
And you can hate the way I live my life but still it's where I'm at

I'm not the kinda cat that would read your email
I'm not gonna cyberstalk you whatever that entails
If you're lookin for a challenge in me: EPIC FAIL
but if you're into honesty well then let's set sail
You meet at guy at a party we're at; I give you space
I meet a lady at a party we're at; want a taste?
just kidding, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, smiley face
go slow? o-k, we go at your pace
But I gotta be me and you gotta be you
So if my girlfriend's other boyfriend has a chalice tattoo
that's how he does he and what's that to you?
that's how we do we because we think that's cool

I'm a different kind of cat, I'm just a different kind of cat
And I'm thanking you for thinking thoughts that I am all o dat
But yo, just so you know I am a different kind of cat
And you can hate the way I live my life but still it's where I'm at

I'm straight edge and square, I don't want no beer
I don't own no car, and don't really care
When last I ate meat: The year was 94
and I'm the most church goin Atheist that you ever saw
Clothing optional? Sure! Lets get raw
First I got some big shoes to remove. Need->Say->More?
I confess to being strange, and to having a brain
And in many ways I am totally plain
Not into games, won't live life in shame
so holler if you hear me and you feel the same
touch me in the morning, but don't walk away
we'll have tomorrow, today AND yesterday
okay

I'm a different kind of cat, I'm just a different kind of cat
And I'm thanking you for thinking thoughts that I am all o dat
But yo, just so you know I am a different kind of cat
And you can hate the way I live my life but that's just where I'm at

I like to think of it as

1 part awareness campaign : 1 part desperate personals ad : 1 part caution tape "monogamous people please stop using me to hurt yourself"

like a love sick puppy

I never knew that desire,
could steal into everything I am,
induce me to the edge of madness.

That it can OWN me,
Until…
I’ve smashed my face into concrete.

Leaving a tinny blood aftertaste.
That I spit up to inanely absolve.

Just by consenting myself to allow
one lone thought,
one solitary moment,
one nano second of you in my mind,
I am back smashing into concrete.
hysterical for some faith that I might break through to you,

There is still the stink of you around me.
I never can get it off,
Maybe it’s because deep down I don’t want too.

I can still close my eyes and part my lips,
to dream the feel of your raw tongue
attacking my mouth and throat
nobody kissed me that way before,
nobody has since.

There is your voice rumbling round my mind
commanding me obediently onto my back,
my hands are still wrapped around you,
pulling in so tight I almost became a part of you.
You where always the one in control.

I am pining for the curve of your chest,
To lay my head and have myself suffocated underneath you
I don’t need to breathe if I have you.

Wanting you makes me sick to my stomach,
enough that the impatience could kill everything I’ve worked for,
I hate the way you make me feel,
but there isn’t a part of you I hate.
Despite what you’ve done
I am forever under your power, like a love sick puppy
I would follow you to the ends of the earth
If you only asked me too…

I’ve given up on goodbye.

"What peaches and what penumbras! Whole families shopping at night! Aisles full of husbands! Wives in the avocados, babies in the tomatoes!--and you, Garcia Lorca, what were you doing down by the watermelons?"

— Allen Ginsberg (Howl and Other Poems)

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
She couldn't find a poly,
But a mono will do!

dragons remain hidden
in the snap dragons

honey in the honeysuckle
the sun in the sunflower

the white chickens in the
white chickens

the allusions in the
illusions

allen ginsberg
is lost in the grocery store

he's still an angel
dreaming

america! america is lost in
america!

david byrne, living, is lost
in democracy

beside the white
leonard cohen
hallelujah

the map is lost in the territory
the territory is lost on the map

euell gibbons
is swallowing e. e. cummings

whole is the night
holy is the birthday

any day is a birth day --
to begin anew

and so to live

In the fresh morning air the color of your hair shone through.
Oh I longed and waited so I could talk to you.
Even then I missed the days you did not sail
And we could talk.

Many days have gone by since
you last held my hand.
Oh but i still wanted to be your friend.
Why you never told me so.

I fell from the clouds because you made me fly so high.
And into despair I just longed to touch your hair.
Golden strawberry curls.
I gave you a locket thinking we would never be parted.
I wonder do you still have it, that part of my hair.

You see my heart no longer beats faster as i drive by past her.
Such a shame to loose the strawberry girl.

So now is a time to move on without her
But there will be days when i think about her
The strawberry girl sitting in the sun
Holding hand in hand having some fun

And now you have gone!
Will the days go by any faster?
Winter loomís
And I look up and watch the passing moonís
As each season passes
Iíll await the warmth of the summer sun
Until the ground grows and flowers bloom
To look upon you from a far
To see the golden strawberry curls once more

My poems & thoughts of you
will stay unfinished
Sad but true
this is obviously wrote with such feeling and is so sad,
it reminds me of my situation, and it makes me want to tell you not to give up hope that you will have that again.



Jools
